Superparamagnetic iron nanoparticles both in the metallic (e.g. Cytodiagnostics Turbobeads), and oxide (e.g. Cytodiagnostics Fe3O4 particles) forms are widely used in life sciences for separation and purfication of biomolecules such as protein and DNA from complex mixtures as well as in immunoprecipitation protocols. By using only a magnet for fast pull-down and isolation of magnetic particles, cumbersome and long purification protocols using columns or centrifugation are not needed.
Other applications include medical diagnostics, catalysis, probing agents to indirectly study the structure of mixed self-assembled monolayers (SAMs), solid phase extraction, anode materials for Li-ion batteries, and electromagnetic interference (EMI) shielding materials.
Protein A Conjugated Turbobeads
Protein A conjugated beads for binding and separation of antibodies using magnetic immunoprecipitation.
- High magnetic properties for fast purification without centrifugation
- Small particles (average size 30nm)
Biotin Functionalized Turbobeads
For binding and separation of streptavidin labeled samples.
- Efficient binding of streptavidin
- Ideal for bridging methods
Water Soluble Iron Oxide Nanoparticles
Cytodiagnostics water soluble iron oxide nanoparticles are availible with 5nm or 10nm diameters and are formulated to ensure the highest magnetization and the tightest specifications.
These particles are suitable for use in numerous life sciences/materials science applications and can be further functionalized for subsequent isolation of proteins, DNA, viruses and cells.
Organic Soluble Iron Oxide Nanoparticles
Cytodiagnostics organic soluble iron oxide nanoparticles are supplied in Toluene and are availible with 5nm or 10nm diameters. These particles are ideal for ligand exchange reactions for further surface functionalization.
Common applications include use in spin-coaters or dip-coaters for fabrication of films, solid phase extraction and the study of mixed self-assembled monolayers.
