NHS ester functionalized gold nanoparticle conjugation kit (20 nm) can be used in the surface modification of indium tin oxide (ITO) electrodes for potential usage in electrocatalysis, and electrochemical sensing.
AuNPs may be used to prepare SARS-CoV-2 conjugate for COVID-19 detection using lateral flow immunoassay technique. It can be potentially used in immobilization of antibodies to improve the sensitivity of optical fiber sensors for the screening of COVID-19. It can also be deposited on the titanium electrode for the formation of a miniaturized device for the electrochemical detection of DNA hybridization.

The CRISPR/Cas9 system has recently emerged as a highly specific, efficient, and versatile gene editing technology that can be utilized to build disease models and correct diseased genes. Safe and effective delivery vectors for the CRISPR/Cas9 system are in critical need to enable clinical development and future applications of CRISPR/Cas9 systems. Professor Yang Liu summarizes recent progress in nonviral nanoparticle approaches for CRISPR/Cas9 delivery.
