Multifunctional SPIO

Multifunctional nanoparticles

As the holder of a patent on multifunctional nanoparticles, SON is one of the few firms in the world capable of supplying multipurpose nanoparticles.

What are multifunctional nanoparticles?

Multifunctional nanoparticles combine a number of different functions in a single nanometric unit. Multifunctional nanoparticles enable specific molecules of interest to be brought together. The result is versatility, meaning they can be used for a broader range of applications. 

Uses for multifunctional nanomaterials

In imaging, for example, multifunctional nanoparticles can be used as contrast agents, notably in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) or positron emission tomography (PET). In such cases, nanoparticles enable extremely accurate detection by targeting specific cells in the body.

This ability to target specific cells or tissues in medicine allows them to be treated without damaging healthy tissue, thereby limiting any adverse effects.

Multifunctional nanoparticles are employed in the production of biosensors used to detect substances in the environment, food, or the body.

SON’s multifunctional nanoparticles are highly characterised and reproducible. As a result, we can provide products of the highest quality that are perfectly suited to your requirements.
