Case Studies

Sensitivity enhancement of food safety assay using gold nanoshells

Client: Global leader in the development of food safety detection technologies

To maintain their leadership position, the customer needed to improve the sensitivity of their assays and enable a higher degree of multiplexing. The customer evaluated multiple reporter particles and detection platforms without success prior to contacting nanoComposix. Using gold nanoshells from nanoComposix, the customer was able to achieve the required sensitivity and multiplexing performance and maintain their market leadership.

Bulk conjugate supply for infectious disease rapid diagnostic

Client: A high-capacity point-of-care diagnostic manufacturer

To support the development and commercial release of a rapid point-of-care diagnostic for SARS-COV-2, the customer required a supply of high-sensitivity custom gold conjugates at scale. nanoComposix developed and scaled a custom process to produce antibody-nanoshell conjugates, meeting the required sensitivity targets and production scale. Customer’s assay has received approval for use in Canada with additional approvals pending.
