Creative Diagnostics Introduces Fluorescent Gold Nanorods

With years of experience in the pharmaceutical and life science sector, Creative Diagnostics recently launches fluorescent gold nanorods, labeled with various fluorophores for multimodal imaging for the global life science marketplace, which can be applied in various research fields including drug delivery, photothermal therapy, multimodal imaging, dark-field scattering imaging, computed tomography, and so on. 

The new fluorescent gold nanorods also have great potential applications in two-photon-excited photoluminescence imaging, photoacoustic imaging, and ultrasensitive chemical and biomedical sensors. Generally, gold nanorods quench the fluorescence of proximal fluorophores. However, the appropriate distance between the fluorophore and nanorods results in significant enhancement of fluorescent signal and quantum yield based on the metal-enhanced fluorescence (MEF) effect.

"Creative Diagnostics is excited to launch its new fluorescent gold nanorods to meet the unmet needs of customers with its existing innovative science products and services. Our gold nanorods are available with a variety of surface properties including coated, functionalized and conjugated forms. The ease of surface chemistry of gold nanorods allows conjugation with various biomolecules, such as PEG, silica, DNA, antibodies, etc." said Dr. Jessica Waldorf, chief scientific officer of R&D department.

"Gold nanorods are becoming more and more important in the production of  diagnostics, imaging, and cancer therapy equipment. It’s glad to see that Creative Diagnostics adds new nanoparticles products to our existing products portfolio, and we hope our gold nanorods in magnetic fields can enhance their potential usefulness for biomedical applications as diagnostic or therapeutics tools. Creative Diagnostics continuously provides highly uniform nanoparticles widely used in biology and medicine, and we are commitment to developing high quality gold nanorods to accelerate the pace of our customers' development programs." said Alex, one of a senior scientific officers at Creative Diagnostics.

Creative Diagnostics will provide its customers with fluorescent gold nanorods of the highest quality, and tailored to their requirements. If you want to know more information about the fluorescent gold nanorods, please contact Creative Diagnostics at 1-631-619-7922 or email to
