Nanomaterials are defined as particles having one of their dimensions ≤100 nm. Nanoparticles have a high surface to volume ratio, which allows an incredible amount of cargo on the surface. Our inorganic and metallic nanomaterials are used in a variety of applications from sensors and solar cells to biomedical applications. Our nanomaterials are available in a wide range of sizes and shapes, such as nanorods, nanospheres, and nano-urchins, and formulations/dispersions, including, nanopowders, pastes and suspensions. In addition, we carry functionalized nanoparticles and nanoparticle kits geared towards advanced applications. Unleash the potential of these powerful materials in your research.

Inorganic Nanoparticles

Inorganic nanoparticles are non-toxic and biocompatible, hydrophilic and highly stable compared to organic materials. We offer a variety of inorganic nanoparticles to enhance your research including silica, fluorescent and nanodiamond nanoparticles.

  • Our silica products come in a variety of modifications to suit your research needs. Whether it is ultra-stable fluorescence, mesoporous, non-porous, or a functionalized surface, we offer a wide selection of sizes to choose from.
  • We offer fluorescent nanoparticles, such as conjugated polymer nanoparticles, which are comprised of a semiconductor light emitting polymer (LEP) core encapsulated within a biocompatible surfactant. Their enhanced stability makes them an excellent choice for multi-modal MRI for cellular imaging.

Metallic Nanoparticles

When prepared and modified with select chemical functional groups, metallic nanoparticles (e.g. gold, silver, iron) offer a wide range of applications in sensing, batteries, diagnostics, and therapeutics.

Gold and Iron Oxide Kits

Take advantage of the unique optical and biocompatible properties of our gold nanoparticles, gold nano-urchins, and iron oxide nanoparticles without demanding synthesis steps. We offer maleimide and N-hydroxysuccinimide (NHS) functionalized kits for one-step conjugation of oligos, antibodies, proteins and peptides. Our gold nanoparticles can be used to target cells for imaging, photothermal therapy and drug delivery, to detect biomarkers, and for immunoassays (including lateral flow assays). Our iron oxide nanoparticles are optimal for cell and biomolecular separation, gene delivery, drug release, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and hyperthermia applications.
