Our products

Product category: Immuno assay systems, Microparticles Polystyrene, dyed and magnetic

AJ-PLAIN: Plain polystyrene particles

Polystyrene particles synthesized by emulsion polymerization with very narrow size distribution. Commonly used for physical adsorption of proteins to the surface of the particles in applications like turbidimetry, slide agglutination…

Variables
  • Particle size: from 50 to 2000 nm.
  • Cleaning process.
Uses
AJ-Plain particles are used in diagnostic applications (turbidimetry, nephelometry, slide agglutinations …), as calibration standards, colloidal models…

Examples of reference codes to identify the latexes

  • AJ08: Dispersion of particles with a mean particle size of 80 nm.
  • AJ20: Dispersion with a mean particle size of 200 nm.
  • AJ20-Clean: Precleaned dispersion with a mean size of 200 nm.
  • AJ1000: Dispersion with a mean particle size of 1000 nm.

AJ-Dyed particles

AJ-Dyed particles are intensively dyed microparticles with high uniformity in the colour. The main characteristic of these particles is that the dye is located in the particle, and leaching to the aqueous phase is not detectable.

Variables
  • Particle size: from 50 to 2000 nm.
  • Colour: red, dark blue, green, sea blue, violet…
  • Colour intensity: low, medium and high.
  • Functionality: -COOH, -CH2Cl, -SO3-, -NH+…
  • Parking area of the functional group: from 15 to 200 Å2/group.
  • Cleaning process.
Uses
AJ-Dyed particles are used in immunochromatography or slide agglutination diagnostic kits in which is necessary to magnify the Ab-Ag reaction by the inclusion of the colored dispersion.

Examples of reference codes

  • AJ20COOH-B: Mean particle size 200 nm. Surface carboxyl groups. Blue latex.

AJ-FLUOR: Fluorescent particles

A fluorescent dye is incorporated in the particles in order to magnify the agglutination signal. The fluorophore (the group responsible for fluorescence) is excited to a higher energy state by an external light at a certain wavelength (λex) and after some conformational changes in the fluorescent molecule, light is emitted at a higher wavelength (λem). In practice, the presence of agglutinated fluorescent particles in diagnostic tests can be detected exciting them and measuring the intensity of the light emitted with an appropriate detector. The sensitivity of this type of detection is higher than other techniques based on absorbance, colorimetry…

About us

Company details

IKERLAT Polymers is located in Lasarte-Oria (Gipuzkoa) since 2006, nevertheless we began this adventure as a spin-off company of The University of the Basque Country, in San Sebastian, in 1998. The work carried out during these years has enabled us to earn the trust of the main diagnostic kits producers along the world. Nowadays we feel proud of having our polymer particles distributed over the 5 continents.
