(Austin, TX) April 18, 2016 – NanoHybrids has announced that their signature NanoSphere product line will now include 30 nm Gold NanoSpheres. With this addition, NanoHybrids now offers standard spherical nanoparticles with 5 nm, 10 nm, 20 nm, 30 nm, 40 nm, and 60 nm diameters.
“As a supplier of high quality gold nanoparticles for scientific research, we are dedicated to helping scientists produce optimal results. Our customers explore a wide range of applications, and a one-size-fits-all approach doesn’t work” said Drew Haser, Director Product Management at NanoHybrids. “The 30 nm particles allow us to offer consistent, reliable, and quality products across a full spectrum of gold nanosphere sizes and research needs.”
Coatings and Applications
Initially, the 30 nm Gold NanoSpheres will be available with citrate or PEG surface coatings. Citrate-capped gold nanospheres offer the potential for easy conjugation and adaption to specific applications. The PEGylated nanoparticles provide enhanced stability and low immunogenicity ideal for in vitro and in vivo applications.
Gold NanoSpheres are suitable as imaging contrast agents in a variety of applications including: photoacoustics, Raman spectroscopy, microscopy, biological assays, molecular imaging, and molecular therapy development. Additionally, the 30 nm Gold NanoSpheres can be used for lateral flow assays where they produce a darker red appearance, compared to standard 40 nm gold spheres.
Industry Leading Quality Standards
As with all NanoHybrids Gold NanoSpheres, the newly released 30 nm nanoparticles are monodisperse (CV <10%) and are subjected to batch-specific characterization. All NanoHybrids’ products including 30 nm NanoSpheres, are available in a number of concentrations and volumes. Concentrations range from an Optical Density (OD) of 1 to 100. Similarly, customers can order standard quantities ranging from 250 uL to 2 L, or request bulk quantities up to 400 L.
The 30 nm Gold NanoSpheres are available now at www.nanohybrids.net. Prices start at $17, with volume discounts and custom requests taken.
NanoHybrids designs, develops, and commercializes nanotechnology solutions to improve health outcomes. In addition to an exciting R&D pipeline, the company sells premium gold nanoparticles, and coated gold nanoparticles featuring proprietary silica coatings with improved colloidal stability and optical performance. NanoHybrids’ gold nanoparticles are ideal for imaging, tumor targeting, lateral flow assays, microscopy, SERS, drug delivery research, sensors and many other applications in life science and materials science.
