Particle Works launches range of high quality magnetic nanoparticles

Particle Works - the nano- and microstructured material specialist - has developed magnetic nanoparticles offering superior performance and physical characteristics.

Particle Works - the nano- and microstructured material specialist - has developed magnetic nanoparticles offering superior performance and physical characteristics. The particles are composed of cobalt protected by a thin shell of iron oxide, offering up to five times the performance of other commercially available products. Supplied with a choice of functional coatings, they are suitable for organic and aqueous solvents, as well as for functionalization with, for example, antibodies.


Drawing on the Blacktrace group's expertise in microfluidics, Particle Works magnetic nanoparticles are precision manufactured using continuous flow techniques to offer very narrow size distributions and low batch-to-batch variation. Each product is supplied with full characterization data, simplifying data analysis and offering enhanced process security for applications in the diagnostic imaging, pharmaceutical, biomedical and industrial sectors. Backed by Particle Works' quality guarantee and expertise in nanomaterials, the company's magnetic nanoparticles are ideally suited to proof of principle, materials optimization and scale-up studies.

Zaber's X-LRQ-DE Series: High Precision Stages with Built-in Controllers and Linear Encoders

Zaber's X-LRQ-DE Series of linear stages have high stiffness, load, and lifetime capabilities in a compact size. The integrated linear encoder combined with stage calibration provides high accuracy positioning over the full travel of the device. At 36 mm high, these stages are excellent for applications where a low profile is required. The X-LRQ-DE's innovative design allows speeds up to 205 mm/s and loads up to 100 kg. Like all Zaber products, the X-LRQ-DE Series is designed for easy set-up and operation.
