About Applied Microspheres B.V.

Applied Microspheres’ expertise lies in the production of (polymer) nano- and microspheres with very narrow size distributions. These can be produced in large batches, for long term supply and stability. Surface chemistries can be modified for conjugation the of antibodies, proteins and other biomolecules and a wide variety of dyes can be “hard dyed” into the polymer matrix. Particle size, surface chemistry and dye profiles can be customised to meet specific requirements. Applied Microspheres also supplies glass microspheres and magnetic beads. Applications: Diagnostic assay development (lateral flow, agglutination, flow cytometry multiplex, particle enhanced turbidimetry), instrument controls, purification. Applied Microspheres was founded early 2011 as a sister company of Distrilab Particle Technology. For over 30 years, Distrilab has been a major supplier of particle technology products in Europe. Initially as distributors for Duke Scientific and later for the particle technology group of Thermo Scientific, after Thermo acquired Duke Scientific and Seradyne. Due to an ever increasing demand for specific particle based products and the vast experience and expertise acquired over the years, it was decided to establish Applied Microspheres as a separate company for all its research and product development activities.
