Colloidal gold Nanoparticles (10nm, 20nm, 40nm, 80nm)

Expedeon colloidal gold is developed using specialized techniques that enable the production of extremely uniform spherical particles with a very narrow size distribution, minimizing variability within your assay.

Using our proprietary production protocols we can very quickly produce large quantities of gold nanoparticles, without compromising on quality. Get in touch for more information on bulk orders.

Our colloidal gold is available in various sizes, concentrations and volumes for maximum flexibility. Please visit www.expedeon.com to view the full range of concentrations and volumes.

Universal Lateral Flow Assay Kit

The Expedeon Universal Lateral Flow Assay (LFA) Kit is designed to enable the easy development of customized sandwich lateral flow assays. The great advantage of this kit is its adaptability to any pair of capture and detection antibodies, which allows the detection of any type of analyte* without the need spray down capture antibodies on the test strip, a labor-intensive process that consumes large amounts of expensive antibody reagent.

  • Fully customizable – adaptable to any pair of capture and detection antibodies and can detect any type of analyte*
  • Quick & easy to use – both conjugations can be set up in only 30 seconds
  • No false negative results – assay is compatible with biological samples
  • No specialized or costly equipment
  • Can be qualitatively and quantitatively analyzed using the supplied scoring card or a LFA reader respectively
* The antigen must contain at least two antigenic sites for the binding of the capture and detection antibodies

The kit combines Expedeon’s easy to use Lightning-Link® antibody labeling and InnovaCoat® GOLD nanoparticle conjugation technologies with an immunochromatographic test performed on Universal-LFA strips. The capture antibody is conjugated to Lightning-Link® Ulfa-Tag, while the detection antibody is conjugated to 40nm InnovaCoat® GOLD, both of which require only 30 seconds to set up.

The capture and detection antibodies are diluted and incubated with the analyte and 40nm InnovaCoat® GOLD-Biotin and then run on Universal LFA strips. Universal LFA strips consist of a nitrocellulose membrane containing a ‘Test line’ (T-line) of immobilized anti- Ulfa-Tag antibody, that binds the Ulfa-Tag-conjugated capture antibody which further binds the analyte in complex with the InnovaCoat GOLD®-detection antibody. A red T-line appears when the analyte is present and the line intensity varies depending on the analyte concentration. Universal LFA strips also contain a ‘Control-line’ (C-line) striped with streptavidin, which confirms that the test is valid, and an absorbent pad to promote and control the flow of sample through the membrane.

Lightning-Link® antibody labeling technology

Lightning-Link® is an innovative technology that enables direct labeling of antibodies or proteins for use in R&D applications, drug discovery and the development of diagnostic kits.

The kits are the world’s fastest, easiest to use and most efficient method of labeling antibodies or proteins. The kits require only 30 seconds hands-on time and there are no separation steps involved, meaning you will retain 100% of your materials.

Benefits of Lightning-Link® labeling technology

  • Quick and easy to use – save time, no special knowledge required
  • No separation steps – 100% recovery – no antibody/protein loss
  • Can be used in a wide range of applications – flexible
  • Freeze dried – ships at ambient temperature, long shelf-life
  • Fully scalable (10ug to 1g or more) – easy transfer from R&D to manufacturing
  • Stringently QC tested – consistent high quality, excellent batch-to-batch reproducibility
  • Large number of labels available – experimental flexibility
  • Reliable: nearly 300 references – successfully used in many fields of research
How does Lightning-Link® work?

The researcher simply pipettes the antibody or other biomolecule into a vial of lyophilized mixture containing the label of interest and incubates for either 3 hours (Lightning-Link range) or only 15 min (Lightning-Link Rapid range).

Despite its apparent simplicity, the Lightning-Link® process is sophisticated and generates conjugates with performance characteristics identical to, or better than, those prepared with laborious multistep conjugation procedures.

Custom gold nanoparticle conjugation service

Our custom conjugate formulation service can either be used as a follow-up service from our micro-optimization service, providing you with bulk quantities of your bespoke antibody-gold nanoparticle conjugates or as an independent conjugation service providing you with specialized conjugates of your choice.

Our in-house team of expert conjugation scientists will quickly generate your conjugates at any scale in your chosen buffer and at an optical density of your choice.

This service simply requires that you provide us with your purified antibody and selected conjugate formulation.

Alternatively, we can provide a full purification service prior to conjugation or purchase commercially available antibodies on your behalf*.

Benefits of this service:

  • Your preferred conjugate formulation at any scale
  • Your preferred concentration and buffer
  • Batch-to-batch reproducibility
  • Fast turnaround
  • No loss of materials
What’s included?
  • Liquid InnovaCoat® GOLD conjugates at any scale
  • Clean-up of purified antibody prior to conjugation (if required)
  • Removal of unbound antibody post conjugation
  • Proof of successful conjugation
Additional extras*
The antibody can be purified or provided if required
*additional costs apply
