Determination of particles size is important in pharmaceutical research and manufacturing of drug delivery system in nano scale. This study was carried out to evaluate particles size of nano polymer particles, composed of Eudragit RL 100, and nano liposomes, composed of hydrogenated soy phosphatidylcholine and cholesterol. Dynamic light scaterring was used to determine nano particles size. The results showed that, dilution ratio influenced differently on the determined nanoparticles.  Liposomal suspension, which was diluted to count rate less than 170 kcps, had statistically significant larger particle than that, which had greater count rate. Polymer particles, which were diluted to count rate less than 126 had statistically significant larger particles than that, which had greater count rate.
