We are a 12 year old company that has provided monodisperse and unagglomerated metal and metal-oxide nanomaterials to thousands of customers.  Hundreds of different variants of material, size, shape, and surface are available as stock products and we have produced over 2000 custom core/shell, biofunctionalized, fluorescent, and magnetic nanocomposites to meet client specifications.  NanoComposix produced the NIST nanosilver reference material and our particles have been utilized in over 400 peer-reviewed publications. All of our materials are supplied with certificates of analysis that include electron microscopy, hydrodynamic diameter, and optical data for each batch to guarantee products meets specifications. Contract manufacturing is performed on scales that range from small beakers to thousands of liters. Nanomaterials for medical devices and clinical trials are produced in our ISO13485 and cGMP compliant cleanroom facility. By leveraging our unique library of nanomaterials, we aim to help our customers rapidly bring nano-enabled products from concept to commercialization.

Dream, Design, Deliver

Our in-stock products are only a small fraction of what we can build.
Over the last 10 years we’ve produced thousands of custom nanoparticle formulations for our customers.


State of the art analysis of nanoparticles with
NIST traceable calibration and ISO13485/cGMP analysis methods.

Convert Promise into Reality

We work closely with our clients to build prototypes that meet their functional specifications.

Scale It

Our ISO13485/cGMP compliant quality management system produces highly reproducible nanoparticle formulations for biodiagnostic, nanomedicine, photonics and consumer applications.

Precisely Engineered Nanomaterials

Use our library of over 500 in-stock nanoparticle variants to accelerate your research projects.


  1. I can’t find the material or size that I’m looking for. Can you make it for me?
    We routinely fabricate custom materials for our customers. Please see our custom synthesis page for more information.
  2. Can you coat nanomaterials with other capping agents or biomolecules?
    We routinely functionalize our materials with alternative capping agents or biomolecules for our customers. Please see our custom synthesis page for more information.
  3. How are your materials characterized?
    All of our nanomaterials are provided with specification sheets that include TEM images, particle size statistics and histogram based on 100 individual nanoparticle measurements, UV-Visible extinction spectrum and pH. Hydrodynamic diameter (dynamic light scattering) and zeta potential are also measured for spherical nanoparticles > 10 nm.
