Application

Owing to their plasmonic properties nanoparticles of gold and silver find broad range of applications extending from diagnostics to molecular detection, photothermal and microwave-based therapies, and nanotoxicology. Colloidal silver nanoparticles also find applications in antimicrobial coatings, electronics and photovoltaics, and surface enhanced Raman spectroscopy (SERS) whereas the colloidal gold nanoparticles find applications in lateral flow assays (immunochromatographic assays) and as TEM labels and size standards.

Our Econix materials are PVP (40 kD polyvinylpyrrolidone) coated high concentration, unagglomerated silver nanospheres. The PVP coating enhances stability Econix silver nanospheres. The Econix materials are well suited for application requiring larger quantities.

Storage and Stability

DO NOT FREEZE. Store at 2-8C and away from light when not in use to maximize shelf life. Nanomaterials can be sensitive to high and low pH conditions and high salt concentrations. Use caution when changing environmental conditions as particles may aggregate.

Articles
Dr. David Medina Cruz et. al. investigate advances in noble bimetallic nanoparticles (BMNP) to more precisely measure and monitor glucose levels in the blood. They focus on the use of enzyme-free silver and gold nanoparticles, such as Ag-Au, Ag-Pt, Ag-Pd, and Au-Pt, and how their structures contribute to biosensor detection.
