Open access for industry to a suite of state-of-the-art fabrication and characterisation equipment at BioCity Nottingham, UK. Focussed around the needs of industry for short-term, applications oriented development and assessment of nanotechnology approaches to improving products and processes.
The company develops unique molecular delivery systems. Its spherical micrometer sizes polymer particles act like micro sponges and absorb molecules while the sub-micrometer sized Hollow silica shells have an internal void space and act much like a standard container.
The company specializes in certain areas of polymer and other materials analysis. Testing areas are: 1) DMA testing for comparing very similar poymers; 2) Nano-indentation using CSM instruments; 3) Thermal Conductivity Testing.
