is pleased to announce that British Biocell International’s new range
of novel gold nanoparticles is available for order.
This range of products has been especially commissioned for BBInternational
from Professor Mathias Brust of one of the UK’s leading nanoparticle discovery
centres based at Liverpool University.
The range includes EM.PEG particles, mercaptyalkyl-PEG gold nanoparticles,
2-5nm, which are stable under extreme conditions of salinity and pH and do not
aggregate after cellular uptake. The particles have been designed specifically
for bionanotechnology applications. The particles are uncharged water soluble
particles of extreme stability and may be supplied with functional groups in
the ligand shell for bio-conjugations.
EM.NGNT are naked gold nanoparticles supplied in toluene solution with a size
range of 4-7nm. They have been stabilised by relatively loose adsorption (thus
'naked') of tertaoctylammonium bromide. The particles are used in research with
particular relevance for gas sensor technology or decorative coatings. The particles
are reactive and can be used for applications such as the assembly of thin films
on thiol or amine surfaces.
The EM-TCGN nanoparticles are thiol-capped gold nanoparticles, 2-5nm, supplied
in solution in an organic solvent. They are used in research with particular
relevance for gas sensor technology or decorative coatings.
For more details of these and other products such as gold sols and conjugates,
please contact Agar direct. Agar supplies one of the broadest ranges of accessories
and consumables for microscopy. The complete range is available in either electronic
or printed-catalogue form. To receive your copy, please visit www.agarscientific.com
