NANoREG Nanomaterial Provider offering its Services to NIA Members

Fluorescent silica nanobeads that are widely used by the NANoREG project have now been made available by NIA Member HiQ-Nano. The nanoparticles were initially provided by the Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia (IIT).

The highly bright fluorescent nanobeads provided to the NANoREG project enable, according to the company, superior imaging; they are also biocompatible, come in different sizes and colours, and are stable in aqueous solutions and biological media. More specifically, they are:

  • Tunable size from 25 to 250 nm, with high degree of size and shape monodispersion
  • Available with blue, green, yellow and red fluorescence emission
  • Highly bright and photostable thanks to the exclusive synthetic route
  • Tunable surface chemistry (e.g., carboxylic, amino, sulphonic acid groups)
  • Biocompatible material; they have been tested both in vitro and in vivo
  • Suitable for super-resolution fluorescence microscopy (STED)
  • Accurately characterized (each batch is characterized through TEM, SEM, DLS, Zeta-Potential and spectroscopy)
  • Guaranteed sterile
  • Available in water or as dried powder
  • Available endotoxin-free

HiQ-Nano is involved in the ‘design, synthesis and characterization of high-quality nanoparticles for research and industrially-oriented applications’. Their products include gold, silver and silica nanoparticles, fluorescent nanobeads, and custom nanomaterial creation. The company is now looking to aid other businesses with its products.
