Antibodies and other amine-containing biomolecules efficiently bind to carboxyl gold nanoshells using EDC-NHS chemistry to make highly stable conjugates. Gold nanoshells provide an ultra bright label for lateral flow up to 20×increases in lateral flow diagnostic sensitivity over 40 nm gold.
Carboxyl is covalently bound to the metal surface. The acid provides a highly negatively charged surface for subsequent conjugation to proteins, antibodies or peptides. Learn more
BioReady products are specially formulated for the attachment of a molecular recognition element such as an antibody for lateral flow and biodiagnostics. Learn more
Provided at 20 OD in a 0.02 mM potassium carbonate solution, and includes
