  • TANBead’s advanced nanotechnology focuses on producing uniform size magnetic nanoparticles including Super-Paramagnetic Iron Oxide (SPIO) and Ultra Small Super-Paramagnetic Iron Oxide (USPIO). We have extensive expertise in surface modification of nanoparticles by synthesis with different functional groups for molecular biology applications. In concept, silica coated SPIO can be applied in nucleic acid extraction, while affinity tag and functional group modified SPIO can be used for protein purification and immunoprecipitation.

    Our plastic consumables are in compliance with the pharmaceutical standards such as GMP, ISO 13485, and ISO 9001. We also design and advance our consumables in pursuit of practicality and cost-saving for experimental applications. It is available upon request for some items patents granted.
