The project builds on NanoHybrids expertise producing high quality gold nanoparticles that enable innovative approaches to imaging. With this Phase I Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) grant, NanoHybrids will develop a new photoacoustic microscopy platform to quantitatively assess biomarker distribution in biopsied and histological human samples........Read more.
NanoHybrids today announced the release of a new line of spherical gold nanoparticles designed to enable highly sensitive and reliable lateral flow immunoassays. Careful selection of indicator particles is absolutely critical to the performance of any lateral flow assay. NanoHybrids’ new line of monodisperse gold nanoparticles can enable the development of lateral flow assays that meet the highest specifications of the industry, particularly with respect to sensitivity and reproducibility........Read more.
NanoHybrids has entered into an agreement that adds NanoHybrids’ premium gold nanoparticles to Eikonix's extensive offering of scientific research products and services.
“Since our launch last year, NanoHybrids products have been quickly gaining popularity with imaging researchers thanks to our high quality and personalized customer service,” said Nishi Viswanathan, Director, Product Development & Marketing at NanoHybrids. “We are very pleased to partner with Eikonix, and believe that this agreement will reinforce NanoHybrids’ position as a worldwide supplier of high quality gold nanoparticles and contrast agents........Read more.
The paper takes an in-depth look at various costs involved in making gold nanoparticles by dividing the process into two main phases - the research phase that involves fine-tuning protocols and characterization and the actual production phase. A break-even analysis is conducted to compare the costs of making nanoparticles with the cost associated with buying them……Read more.
Rupture of atherosclerotic plaques account for around 70% of fatal acute myocardial infarctions and/or sudden coronary deaths. Plaques that are vulnerable to rupture have certain specific features, which can be detected by various intravascular imaging techniques. However, currently available techniques are limited in their ability to target and image macrophage activity, a crucial component of atherosclerotic plaque characterization. NanoHybrids is developing a contrast agent for intravascular imaging……Read more.
“Frustrated by inconsistent imaging results due to highly variable shape, size and other properties of commercially available gold nanoparticles, our team has developed highly monodisperse gold nanorods and nanospheres that will help scientists obtain consistent and better quality data. We also have a policy of ‘no proprietary coatings’ which means that unlike some companies in this space, we offer full transparency on surface chemistry, making it easier for our customers to modify and use these particles depending on their application,” says Co-founder and Chief Technology Officer……Read more.
