BBI Celebrates British Science Week


BBI Celebrates British Science Week

To celebrate British Science Week, we thought we would mark the occasion by highlighting some recent scientific papers, published this year in renowned journals such as Nature and The Journal of Physical Chemistry that utilise BBI solutions world class gold nanoparticles.

The extensive nanoparticle range, available in various sized particles, allows researchers and academics to apply these products across a variety of applications. Many of them push the boundaries of innovation and help create truly next generation products that vary from new analytical techniques and biosensors to calibration controls and molecular based lateral flow assays.

In 1857, Michael Faraday, one of Britain’s most recognised scientists, created gold nanoparticles in the basement laboratory of the Royal Institutive in London. His work is still on display over 160 years later.

Below is a selection of our favourite online abstracts published this year. Although based in British Heritage, research using gold nanoparticles is now being carried out across the Globe and is subject to many exciting advances.
