Particle Works manufactures high-performance nano- and microstructured materials with precisely controlled particle size, shape and architecture.

Particle Works is a brand of Blacktrace Holdings Ltd (, a world leader in Productizing Science®. Our Head Office is based in Royston (near Cambridge), UK and we have regional offices in the USA, Japan, India and Brasil.


We manufacture the following nano-and microstructured materials:

Why are Particle Works nanomaterials so unique?

We supply high performance materials: all our nano- and microstructured materials are produced within a tightly defined range of critical parameters – size, shape and architecture. Precise control of these critical parameters is crucial to attain peak performance in the materials.

Reliable batch-to-batch consistency: we use robust processes and world leading technologies and expertise in the discovery and fabrication of nanostructured materials. This ensures high monodispersity in particles and reliable batch-to-batch consistency. 

Characterization data: we supply characterization data with all our materials. We use techniques such as transmission electron microscopy, scanning electron microscopy, fluorescence and optical microscopy, UV-Vis spectroscopy and dynamic light scattering.

Cutting edge technology

As a brand of Blacktrace Group, Particle Works has access to state of the art automated microfluidic continuous flow technologies from its sister brands Syrris and Dolomite Microfluidics. This, together with expertise in fabrication and applications of nano- and microstructured materials, enables manufacture of materials at the peak of their performance.


Many applications benefit from our high-performance particles: lateral flow assays, bio imaging, catalysts, light emitting materials, magnetic materials, targeted drug delivery, controlled drug release and cell growth medium.
