Creative Diagnostics Launches Gold Nanostars for Bio-community

Creative Diagnostics
Posted on: 26 Apr 18

With years of experience in the pharmaceutical and life science sector, Creative Diagnostics recently launches new gold nanostars for global researchers, with high purity, high monodispersity with narrow size distribution, which have comprehensive characterization including TEM, UV-Vis, DLS. These gold nanostars are unique shape gold nanoparticles with spiky protrusion, which results in absorption of light in the far-red.

Gold nanostars have unique optical properties compared to spherical gold nanoparticles of the same core diameter. The spiky uneven surface causes a red shift in the surface plasmon peak and a larger enhancement of the electromagnetic field at the tips of the gold nanostars spikes compared to that of spherical particles. Binding of ligands such as proteins to the gold nanostars surface also causes a larger shift in the surface plasmon resonance peak compared to standard spherical gold nanoparticles. This feature makes them ideal in the development of sensitive SPR-based detection assays.

Creative Diagnostics now offers a comprehensive list of functional and conjugated Nanostars. Nanostars are functionalized with active groups such as NHS, carboxyl, amine and hydroxyl. Conjugated nanostars with a variety of biological ligands are designed for researchers' unique requirements.

"We're glad that these new products reinforce our commitment to best serve our clients globally, and open new opportunities to support client and researchers need," said Dr. Jessica Waldorf, chief scientific officer of R&D department, at Creative Diagnostics. "As nanoparticles applications continue to expand, and the demands for products quality increase, we continue to develop a broad range of innovative solutions. We're excited to offer such quality products and services for addressing researchers’ challenges.” 

"As we continue to supply quaility products for researchers, we'll remain committed to developing reliable products for researchers for scientific achievements across all sectors of research." said Dr. Randy S. Vaughn, senior researcher at Creative Diagnostics. "We never forget our commitment to supporting the scientific community as we partner to address research challenges around the world, Creative Diagnostics is glad to play an role in supporting R&D for researchers study."
