NIST Selects BBI Nanoparticles

Photonics.com
Jan 2008
The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has selected gold nanoparticles made by BBInternational (BBI), based in England, as the source of reference materials for preclinical biomedical research. The US agency will use colloidal gold nanoparticles made by BBI to create nanoscale materials for the evaluation and qualification of methodology and instrument performance. This will enable companies involved in research and diagnostics to ensure that their equipment is performing within the required quality-control parameters for the measurement and characterization of nanoparticles. BBInternational makes spherical, mono disperse gold nanoparticles that are widely used in rapid lateral flow assays.


GLOSSARY
photonics
The technology of generating and harnessing light and other forms of radiant energy whose quantum unit is the photon. The science includes light emission, transmission, deflection, amplification and detection by optical components and instruments, lasers and other light sources, fiber optics, electro-optical instrumentation, related hardware and electronics, and sophisticated systems. The range of applications of photonics extends from energy generation to detection to communications and...
