Commercializes a nano and micron sized ceramic spheres technology that provides encapsulation and controlled release of active molecules for a variety of applications including drug delivery, cosmeceuticals and speciality chemicals.
Ceres uses its Nanotrap technology - a spherical, carbon-based nanoparticle designed to collect, concentrate, isolate and preserve the smallest and scarcest of molecules found in body fluids - to pursue a range of applications in the diagnosis and treatment of diseases, as well as uses in sports screening, homeland security and environmental remediation.
The company develops and sells a series of acrylate nanocomposite coatings under the trade name CETOSIL that contain up to 30% of nano-sized silica. The use of special surface grafted silica nanoparticles ensures the transparency and low viscosity of the coatings.
Develops technologies for the production and application of nanomaterials for a broad range of end uses - advanced simulation software, collaborative R&D, and consultation services for the analysis, design and optimization of nanomaterial fabrication processes. CFSRC's simulation tools enable rapid screening of concepts for both production and use of nanomaterials, optimization of downselected designs and processes, and rapid product development.
The company acquired substantially all of the assets of SouthWest NanoTechnologies (SWeNT) and has reopened the state-of-the-art Carbon Nanotube (CNT) plant in Norman, Oklahoma. They manufacture high-quality single-wall and few-wall CNT materials made using the patented CoMoCAT™ process under an exclusive license with the University of Oklahoma.
A joint initiative by BASF and the TechnologieZentrum Ludwigshafen (TZL) to offer full service start-up support to new companies in the areas of chemistry, nanotechnology, new materials, bio-technology and process and analytical technology.
Chemicon offers molecular biology research tools. Included are mRNA expression analysis assays via RT-PCR and PCR amplication methods for apoptosis, cancer, cytokines, signal transduction, MMPs and ECM using colorimetric or bioluminescent formats
In its mission to create the next generation of photonic solutions, Chiral Photonics continues to advance the discovery and to develop ever more technologies related to chiral photophysics and glass microfabrication.
The company develops electrochromic products that save energy and increase comfort levels. Their patented technologies enable production of plastic foils with controllable optical characteristics - they become lighter or darker by applying a low electrical voltage.
