  • Patent number: 10184025
    Abstract: The present disclosure is directed to methods of preparing stable suspensions of precious metal nanoparticles and methods for attaching bio-molecules to the nanoparticles. The formation of nanoparticles can be accomplished by either chemical synthesis or pulsed laser ablation in a liquid. The present disclosure reveals the importance of controlling the conductivity of the dispersion medium during pulsed laser ablation in a liquid to control the particle size of the nanoparticles. The present disclosure also reveals the importance of adjusting and maintaining the conductivity in a range of 25 ?S/cm or less during storage of the nanoparticles and just prior to performing bioconjugation reactions. The control of conductivity is an important process for maintaining the nanoparticles as a stable non-aggregated colloidal suspension in a dispersion medium.
