Nanopartz™ Plasmonic Fluorophores™
Nanopartz™ Plasmonic Fluorophores™ are fluorophore decorated gold nanorods manufactured using multiple patent pending and proprietary methods that result in fluorophores that exhibit much higher intensities than conventional fluorophores, no photobleaching even under the highest laser intensities, with chemical resistance to extreme pHs, salts, and other adverse chemicals. Peak fluorescence range from 550nm to 800nm, where each nanorod fluoresces up to 50,000 times brighter than a single fluorophore. Every batch is completely characterized including size, monodispersity, aggregation, and concentration. Residual chemicals are reduced to trace. A Certificate of Analysis (COA) is provided for every order exhibiting TEM and UV-VIS images and data, as well as DLS data. Conjugation options include amine, biotin, carboxyl, methyl, neutravidin, nhs, maleimide, streptavidin, and secondary antibody conjugations. These particles may also be conjugated to customer defined antibodies, peptides, oligos, and more. These conjugated particles can be used in darkfield, fluorescence, and other imaging modes; ELISA, lateral flow, and other assays.

These Plasmonic Fluorophores™ come in numerous conjugations:
Available in amine, biotin, carboxyl, methyl, neutravidin, streptavidin, nhs, maleimide, and azide forms. Methyl acts as a free acid form to be used as a non reactive negative control.
Secondary Antibody Conjugates - polyclonal provide species-specific detection of the entire target IgG class (heavy and light chains, H+L). Reagents, labeling (PF/protein ratio and purificaiton methods are optimized to provide the highest possible binding function and overall fluorescence intensity. All conjugates are stable for 1 year at 4°C, providing consistent performance for the duration of use.

How much thickness does your proprietary capping agent add?
It is less than the variablility of the size of the nanoparticles themselves, so it is unmeasurable.
How do I determine the concentration of the product?
Simply divide the number of nanoparticles (nps) found on the included COA by the amount of solvent you add.
Why do you sell your rods as OD-mLs and what does this mean?
This is because unlike spherical gold nanoparticles, the conversion from OD to mg is not linear with nanorod diameter. Consequently, for the same OD, the weight of the nanorods increases with diameter. 50 OD-mLs means that if you resuspend the material in 1mL of solvent, you will have an absorption of OD50 through a 1mL optical path.
Can I resuspend in water?
Can I suspend in silicon oil?
Will the SPR wavelength shift with different solvents?
The SPR is a function of the index of refraction of the host solvent in which the nanoparticles are suspended. Nanorods are the most sensitive and are therefore a great tool for measuring the index of refraction of the host.
What is the shelf life if I never open the package?
Should I store in the refrigerator?
"We have looked at many different gold nanoparticles samples from Nanopartz including spheres, rods, and microrods using single particle spectroscopy techniques and are extremely happy with the quality of the samples and the service provided by Nanopartz."
