NanoSys GmbH is active in the manufacture of nanoscaled chemical layers for all different substrates and functions, be it the improvement of corrosion resistance, hydrophobizity of pure and painted wood, hydrophobizity of sandstone, bricks and concrete, improving adhesion of paints to all sorts of plastics, easy to clean properties of surfaces, etc.
The company manufactures and sells benchtop systems for growing high quality carbon nanotubes for education, research and product development. They also have CNT arrays available for sale that are more than adequate for research or product development purposes.
The company designs and sells security devices. In its N.O.t.E.S (Nano-Optic Technology for Enhanced Security) application, commercially viable nanotechnology has been designed into specialized optics yielding unique signatures that cannot be reproduced by a counterfeit.
The company develops technologies for commercial manufacture of carbon nanocluster material, fullerene-containing soot, mixtures of fullerenes and their homologues from spectroscopically pure graphite.
The core business of NANOTEK Instruments, Inc., is research, development, manufacture, sales and service of nano materials and processing technologies (including nano materials and bio-materials), energy storage and conversion technologies (including fuel cell systems, batteries, and solar energy materials), and rapid prototyping/tooling/manufacturing technologies.
NanoTemper Technologies GmbH, a Spin-Off of the Ludwig-Maximilians-University Munich, was founded in May 2008 in order to provide analytical services to pharmaceutical industry, biotechnology and research institues.
nanoTherics Ltd was formed in August 2007 to exploit a novel gene transfection technology arising from biomedical research at Keele University and the University of Florida. The patented technology uses nanoparticles and magnetic fields to facilitate the delivery of foreign DNA into living cells.
