"We were previously making our own gold nanoparticles using the commonly used technique of citrate reduction of Au(III). The colloids generated are broadly polydisperse, and we were concerned that our application of these particles in immuno-gold labeling of cells for optical coherence microscopy (OCM) would be utilizing only the large diameter tail of the distribution. We purchased the sampler package of NanoPartz gold spheres (30 nm, 50 nm, 70 nm, 90 nm) and examined each size carefully with dynamic light scattering, OCM, and spectrophotometry. Our measurements indicated diameters a couple nanometers larger than specifications (a result of measurements on the fully hydrated state?), and remarkable monodispersity - within specs. It is clear to us now that our early immuno-gold results were dominated by the largest diameter spheres of our early colloids. We are delighted by the NanoPartz monodisperse preparations and recommend them strongly!"

"The scientists at Nanopartz have developed a line of colloidal gold nanorods with extremely high monodispersity in size, shape, and mass. The surfactant layer is highly stable and readily displaced for biofunctionalization. In every test, in vitro and in vivo, these materials have exceeded our expectations."

The manufacturing method for these nanoparticles are based on our proprietary method. This invention allowed the first use of a reducing agent to be used at room temperature. Unlike citrate which is only a reducing agent at the boiling temperature of water - thereby quickly making non-monodisperse gold nanoparticles, our reducing agent works by slowing building nanoparticles from seed, atom by atom, over the course of up to hours. The result is a highly monodisperse product with unrivaled spherical shapes.

All of these "bare" particles are capped with ligands that are easily replaced with thiol and charge chemistries. We do not recommend using the carboxyl termination on our proprietary ligand as a conjugatable attachment.

  • Highly accurate and monodisperse in size, shape, and batch to batch uniformity.
    • Monodisperse sizes and shapes leads to better standards for electron microscopy and other diagnostics.
  • Accurate to +/- 5 nm in diameter.
    • More accurate sizing makes for better SPR matching for Surface Enhanced Raman Labels.
  • Size monodispersity better than 10% CV for many sizes.
    • Monodisperse sizes and shapes leads to better Resonance Light Scattering labels in sensitivity and multiplexing
  • Greater than 80% cubes.
  • Extremely stable.  Shelf life is greater than one year.  May be stored at room temperature for extended periods.
  • The light scattering power of a 60 nm gold particle is equivalent to ~5 X 105 fluorescein molecules.
  • Light scatter can be detected by the unaided eye at particle concentrations as low as 10-15 M (femtomolar) in suspension and as low as 0.005 particles/m2 on a transparent surface.
    • 105 better scattering power than fluorescein means lower limits of detection with simpler instrumentation.
  • Individual gold nanoparticles can be seen by eye in an inexpensive student microscope with simple dark field illumination allowing for very sensitive and inexpensive particle counting assays.
  • Different sized particles scatter different colors of light and therefore can be used as multicolor multiplexed labels.
  • Facile conjugations allow for coating of antibodies, receptors, ligands, DNA without affecting their light scattering properties.
  • Slightly negatively charged (reduced aggregation).
  • Facile synthesis.  Gold chemistry is well known.
