Comar Chemicals will establish a second production site for its organo metallic catalysts and nanoparticle chemicals at Clariant's new "Infrapark Baselland" in Muttenz, Switzerland during the course of 2011.
Merck recently notified CardioGenics that while it is refining its encapsulation of the CardioGenics beads, it will also test a batch of magnetic beads coated with CardioGenics' proprietary silver-coating and polymer encapsulation processes with the aim of commercializing the CardioGenics Encapsulated Beads while Merck Chimie is finalizing its owns proprietary encapsulation of the CardioGenics beads.
Together with the previously issued patents (U.S. 7,626,694, U.S. 7,828,695, U.S. 7,626,703 and U.S. 7,782,457) substantial systems and methods of super-resolution microscopy are now protected. These methods are based on the separation and localization of molecules to achieve resolution beyond the Abbe resolution limit.
Nanotechnology company Izon Science, is putting its support behind a gathering of world-leading nanotechnologists, physicists and chemists in Wellington next week, as a gold sponsor and contributor. The Fifth International Conference on Advanced Materials and Nanotechnology (AMN-5), hosted by the MacDiarmid Institute, brings together an international gathering of experts to discuss new advances and opportunities in the advanced materials and nanotechnology fields.
