Silica Coated Magnetic Particles - SilaMag Particles
Amid Biosciences’ silica coated magnetic particles - SilaMag Particles - produced by employing a modified Stoeber process by hydrolysis of orthosilicates on magnetite surface. Silica coating improves stability and shelf life of the magnetic microparticles.
The surface of SilaMag Particles contains terminal Si-OH bonds facilitating hydrophilic properties. Additionally, Si-OH bonds enable the surface functionalization by offering diverse active groups including NH2, COOH, SH, N-hydroxysuccinimide (NHS) and epoxy for the covalent binding of proteins, antibodies, DNAs, RNAs and other molecules.
SilaMag Particles are stable in water and common buffers, and in presence of detergents.
