UK's BBI and NIST in partnership for gold nanoparticles

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

Cardiff, UK-based BBI has been chosen by the US National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) to provide gold nanoparticles to make nanoscale reference materials for the evaluation and qualification of methodology and instrument performance. The resulting materials will help diagnostic firms make sure that equipment is performing with the required QC parameters for the measurement and characterisation of quality nanoparticles. The gold nanoparticles are used in membrane-based rapid assays due to their stability and ultra-sensitivity. BBI is currently in the process of being acquired by Inverness Medical Innovations (see Clinica No 1286, p 3).
