Sona does not use CTAB or any of its homologs to produce its gold nanorods (GNRs). This means no traces of CTAB or CTA+ are present in the GNRs after production. Other suppliers make GNRs in CTAB or is its analogs and then try to remove excess CTAB or wrap their GNRs in polymers with CTAB still sitting on them.
SONA provides characterization information with every lot including size (TEM *what this means), optical properties (UV-Vis to near IR spectroscopy), zeta potential (Dynamic Light Scattering). Representative TEM images and batch-specific spectra are also included on every product sheet.
SONA’s gold nano rods (GNRs) remain stable for at least a year. Please see our technical specification sheets for information on best practices for storage and handling.
We are actively seeking collaborations with lateral flow test developers or developers of any medical applications using GNRs or where GNRs may prove to be the appropriate particle.

We are always willing to discuss collaborations. To begin the process of collaborating, please contact us.

SONA’s gold nanorods are designed with life science applications in mind, such as:
  • Photothermal / hyperthermal therapy
  • Bio-imaging (3D)
  • Diagnostic test kits
  • Pain management
  • Liposuction
SONA’s gold nanorods are also suitable for research in:
  • Data storage
  • Solar cell technology

Please contact us for further information regarding the use of our particles for your desired application.

SONA has a patent-pending manufacturing process that produces stable, monodispersed gold nanorods. Our customers can achieve better results due to the uniformity in rod shape, and the reproducibility that our method provides.
SONA’S CTAB-free gold nanorods (GNRs) are safe for in-vivo uses. Thus, if the aim of specific research is to be approved for human trial, Sona’s nano rods offer the best chance. Further, Sona’s GNRs have superior uniformity. The surface molecules of the GNRs exchange more easily with other molecules to make surface enhancement and functionalization easier.
