These tridimensional particles are gold nanoparticles, a specific type of nanoparticles which is widely employed for biomedical applications and especially in diagnostics. These little spheres have a diameter around 300 nm and they appear as little cubes under the microscope.
Functionalised gold nanoparticles have been studied as biosensors, for cancer treatment, drug delivery, immuno assays, optical bioimaging and much more!
