BioReady Gold nanospheres and nanoshells were covalently linked to Rat anti-Mouse IgG. Lateral flow assays were run with half-log serial dilutions of Mouse IgG on membranes striped with Rabbit anti-Mouse IgG.

Drop-In Integration

BioReady gold nanospheres and nanoshells are a direct replacement for other commercially available lateral flow labels. Our technical staff can help you optimize a protocol to achieve maximum sensitivity in your assay system.


Gold nanoshells have a blue color, and when used in conjunction with gold nanospheres, enable multiplexed lateral flow assays.

Multiple Surfaces

BioReady gold nanoparticles are available with a choice of different surface depending on your application. Please contact us to discuss which BioReady product is best for you.

I have ordered carboxylic acid functionalized AuNP from nanoComposix. Their nanoparticles are very well characterized and easy to use, which saved my a lot of time on troubleshooting. Besides high quality products, I also received a lot of help and support from [the nanoComposix Support Team] which boosted my experiment speed and skills. Both the product and support I achieved from nanocomposix is the best I’ve ever experienced.

Carbonate · Efficient adsorption

Ultra-clean and displaceable surface for rapid and efficient adsorption of proteins. The pH of the gold solution is pre-optimized for coupling to antibodies.

Carboxylic Acid · Flexible binding chemistry

Carboxylic acid groups on gold nanoparticles provide anchor points for covalent protein attachment.

NHS · 1-step conjugation

Dried and dispersible, NHS gold nanoparticle powders covalently couple antibodies to the nanoparticle surface in a 1-step reaction.

Streptavidin · Biotinylated binding

Streptavidin coated gold nanoparticles strongly bind to biotin labeled targets with high specificity.
