Cytodiagnostics dibenzocyclooctyne (DBCO) functionalized gold nanoparticles are suitable for covalent conjugation of any azide-tagged molecule through click chemistry. The rigid structure of the DBCO allows for quick reactions under more moderate conditions, and eliminates the need for a copper catalyst. This chemistry confers higher stability in aqueous conditions and the lack of copper greatly increases its overall biocompatibility, enabling a multitude of biological applications.
Our DBCO functionalized gold nanoparticles are available in 9 different sizes ranging from 20 - 100nm, are more than 95% spherical and have uniform size distribution (CV <12%).
