Creative Diagnostics Introduces Coating Nanoparticles for Immunoassay

June 27 08:20 2017
Creative Diagnostics launches a new product line of coating nanoparticles to support scientific research.

Creative Diagnostics, a global leading manufacturer of highly uniform nanoparticles widely used in biology and medicine, now launches a new product line of coating nanoparticles to support researchers in the areas of targeted drug delivery, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), cell labelling and separation, and hyperthermia treatment of cancer, etc.

Magnetic nanoparticles are superparamagnetic in nature; they are magnetized only upon application of an external magnetic field. Due to large surface area, magnetic nanoparticles are prone to oxidation by air and aggregation; this limits their use in biomedical applications. Various coating strategies have been employed to protect magnetic nanoparticles from oxidation and aggregation by using polymers and noble metals like gold, silica.

Out of them, gold coating offers advantage of being chemically stable and biocompatible. It also provides the possibility of conjugating targeting ligands, drugs using gold-thiol chemistry, and for photothermal destruction of cancer cells. In gold coated magnetic nanoparticles, superparamagnetic nature of magnetic nanoparticles is retained with either a decrease or an increase in the value of saturation magnetization.

“We provide researchers with the most comprehensive list of nanoparticles products with different size and surface properties for needs in both research and industrial development. Once functionalized, these coating nanoparticles can be employed as platforms for many applications such as target-specific drug delivery, biosensors, lateral flow tests, flow cytometry, and cancer photothermal therapy.” said Dr. Randy S. Vaughn, senior researcher at Creative Diagnostics.

“This newly launched products enables us to provide scientists with an important new solution for nanoparticles in biological and medical research,” said Dr. Jessica Waldorf, chief scientific officer of R&D department of Creative Diagnostics. “Customers now have a new approach to have better sample analysis which helps them gain a deeper understanding of the research in immunoassay, bioseparation, medical imaging and diagnosis, as well as drug delivery and cancer therapy.”
