What do you know about Nanoparticles for Bio-research?

Feb 11th 2019 at 8:22 PM

Generally speaking, nanoparticles refer to particles in the size range of 0.1 to 100 nm, where particles show completely novel physicochemical properties from their bulk counterpart. The promise of nanoparticles for diagnostic and therapeutic applications has been widely explored. For diagnostic applications, the specificity and sensitivity of imaging can be greatly improved by using nanoparticles as contrast enhancement agents. As therapeutic agent, nanoparticles enable targeted and controlled drug delivery.

Nanoparticles are used for supporting biologically relevant research on hyperthermia and photodynamic therapy, immunoassay, bioseparation, medical imaging and diagnosis, as well as drug delivery and cancer therapy. In addition, nanoparticles can be successfully used as delivery tools for currently bioactive compounds with low solubility. And nanotechnology offers targeted drug delivery to the site of disease. As drugs can be protected from a critical environment, their unfavorable biopharmaceutical properties can be replaced by the desired properties of nanoparticles. Thus, compared to the traditional forms of drugs, nanoparticles delivery systems offer many advantages.

Creative Diagnostics now provides highly uniform magnetic nanoparticles for laboratory use in biology and medicine, which include a wide range of related products such as colloidal gold nanoparticles, silver nanoparticles, silica nanoparticles, titania nanoparticles, inorganic fluorescent nanoparticles (quantum dots and upconversion nanocrystals), as well as biodegradable polymer nanoparticles. They are manufactured with different shapes and sizes, and the particle surface can be coated, functionalized or conjugated with biomolecules.

Featured products for drug delivery like magnetic particles, polymer particles, and gold nanoparticles are also supplied. Researchers can find products such as Absolute Mag™ Carboxylic Acid Iron Oxide Nanoparticles, DiagPoly™ Carboxyl Polystyrene Particles, 0.015 µm, DiagNano™ Methyl, PEG2000 Gold Nanoparticles, 20 nm available at Creative Diagnostics. With optimized physicochemical and biological properties, nanotechnology becomes a potential method of replacing traditional medicines and the next generation tools for drug delivery applications.
