Fluorescent Particles

Surflay's Unique Fluorescent Particles

  • The monodisperse polymer particles produced by Surflay Nanotec can be labelled with one or multiple fluorescent dyes
  • Applicable fluorescent dyes cover the entire visible range of the electromagnetic spectrum
  • Fluorescent labelling of the polymer particles takes place during particle synthesis. Leaching of the dyes is prevented.
  • These polymer particles have particularly homogeneous dye distribution within the particle, compared to particles labelled post-synthesis.
  • During the labelling phase several fluorescent dyes can be used and the dye concentration can be controlled. Thus the resulting fluorescence intensity can be fine-tuned.
  • Finally, fluorescence-labelled polymer particles can be provided with specific functional groups on the surface.
