CANdot Series MMagnetic nanoparticles for material and life science

Superparamagnetic nanoparticles with diameters between 4 and 20 nm

CANdot ® Series M: superparamagnetic nanoparticles for material and life science. These particles are suitable for all applications where homogeneously dispersed particles with only one magnetic domain are needed. They exhibit the following properties:

  • Diameter of the particles tunable between 4 and 20 nm
  • Small size distribution de to high temperature synthesis
  • Superparamagnetism up to a particle diameter of 20 nm
  • High stability against heat or exposure to light
  • Homogeneously dispersible in non polar or aqeous media
  • Water soluble particles can be delivered with functional groups like NH2 for coupling to affinity molecules

CANdot ® Series M particles consist of an iron oxide core surrounded by a layer of oleic acid molecules to prevent agglomeration and to enable a homogeneous dispersion in non polar media like n-hexane. For the use in biomedical research these particles are also available with a PEG coating to allow their dispersibility in water or buffer. Using the functional groups at the outside it is further possible to attach affinity molecules to these particles.
