Ultrabright label for lateral flow – up to 20× increases in lateral flow diagnostic sensitivity over 40 nm gold.
NHS-activated gold is provided dried with conjugation kit components that make initial conjugation sweeps easy – no EDC/NHS activation required, just add purified antibody and follow our simple protocol (below).
BioReady products are specially formulated for the attachment of a molecular recognition element such as an antibody for lateral flow and biodiagnostics. Learn more ❯
- Lyophilized gold nanoshells that reconstitute to 20 OD; 100 µL per small unit and 1 mL per large unit
- Easy-to-use detailed protocol (also available below to view before you buy)
