Phosphine-stabilized gold nanoparticles have a rich chemistry and are excellent building blocks for functional groups, however they have typically been synthesized through cumbersome and unsafe methods. This process is a safer, more convenient, and more versatile procedure to synthesize small, phosphine-stabilized gold nanoparticles under ambient conditions.
A simple method to control the size of Au nanoparticles via heat treatment. The Au nanoparticles grew to between 3 and 10 nm in size at 150 to 250 degrees C.
NanoHybrids develops nanoparticle contrast agents for Photoacoustics, Optical Imaging, Microscopy, Molecular Diagnostic and Theranostic applications.
As nanotechnology rapidly expands into the realms of medicine, there is an unmet need for “smart” nanoparticles capable of homing in on diseased tissue while leaving healthy cells intact. When targeted to specific biomarkers, these nanoparticles can provide critical information about the biology of the disease in the context of the anatomy both in vitro and in vivo.
Our unique gold nanoparticle labeling technology uses chemically cross-linked metal clusters and nanoparticles as labels.
Unlike conventional immunogold probes, in which colloidal gold particles are electrostatically adsorbed to antibodies and proteins, our gold nanoparticle labels are uncharged molecules which are cross-linked to specific sites on biomolecules. This gives our nanogold probes greater range and versatility than colloidal gold.
