About Spherotech
 
Spherotech was established in 1992 to manufacture and supply uniform monodispersed micro and nanoparticles for biomedical applications, diagnostics and drug discovery. Our headquarters is located 25 miles north of Chicago, in Lake Forest, IL.

As a global supplier of micro and nanoparticle solutions, our skilled scientists can manufacture high quality polystyrene fluorescent, paramagnetic, ferromagnetic and color dyed particles. In addition, we prepare gold nanoparticles for diagnostic applications.

Spherotech offers:

  • Monodispersed uniform sized particles for functional assays
  • Different types of functionalized beads for covalent and passive couplings
  • Precoated beads with antibodies, proteins and ligands
  • Cross linked beads for more functional groups and organic reactions
  • Beads in different sizes for flow cytometry alignment, calibration, compensation, counting and sorting

Spherotech micro and nanoparticles applications:

  • Fluorescence microscopy
  • Genomic and Immunoassays
  • EIA and ELISA assays
  • Flow cytometry
  • DNA isolation and bead PCR
  • Cells isolation using Magnetic Particles
  • Microfluidics with smaller particles
  • Drug interference assays
  • Antigen isolation from Plasma and Whole Blood
  • Immobilization of biomolecules like antibodies, DNA and carbohydrates for assay development

Spherotech specializes in preparing different types of micro and nanoparticles for research and development. Our particles are uniform in size, monodispersed and well characterized by SEM and TEM. Spherotech is continuously introducing new products for different applications and improving our existing portfolio.
