Selenium Nanoparticles (SeNP)

Glantreo’s highly monodispersed SeNP come in two sizes: 250 and 350 nm diameter. SeNP of these sizes have a lambda max of 585 nm and 640 nm respectively. Absorbance at these wavelengths causes SeNP to have a strong red colour. This red colour, and the nanoparticles compatibility with passive protein conjugation, makes them ideal for biological labelling applications including Lateral flow assays. Furthermore, the intrinsic fluorescenceproperties of Selenium nanoparticles lend them use in imaging applications. Finally, the anti-cancer, anti-bacteria and anti-fungal properties of selenium nanoparticles combined with their labelling properties place them in a unique position as a self-reporting therapeutic.
