In-Q-Tel was established as an independent, private, not-for-profit company to help the CIA and the greater US Intelligence Community (IC) to identify, acquire, and deploy cutting-edge technologies. One area of focus is nanotechnology.
A spin off founded to commercialize FDEC FET nano sensor technology invented at Arizona State University.The novel nano sensor technology is capable of exponential capacitive transduction for ultra high sensitivity molecular detection, coupled with exceptional selectivity.
Inanovate creates nano-scale surface structures through a unique and proprietary process capable of nano-meter precision in a time and cost effective way. Leveraging this unique platform and expertise, Inanovate is developing nano-structured biochip substrates to facilitate the next generation in biochip technology.
In addition to lab instruments and supplies, the company provides nanotechnology model kits and components for the scientist and engineer involved in the teaching of design or research and development of nanotechnology.
Industrial Hard Carbon thin film coatings are characterized by extreme hardness, lubricity, high wear resistance, high corrosion resistance and a number of other useful qualities. The films are deposited by a proprietary plasma-assisted chemical vapor deposition process. Far different from the diamond-like and carbide thin films familiar to many in the coating industry, IHC films are created from layers of nano-crystalline diamond and nano-crystalline silicon carbide in an amorphous matrix of both elements.
The company creates value by commercialising technology and working with business partners to develop high value business opportunities. IRL's nanotechnology platform is developing world-class scientific capability focussing on nano/microfluidics, mathematical modelling and quantum dots.
Industrial Sonomechanics offers high-intensity industrial ultrasonic liquid processors for the production of nanoemulsions and nano-particle suspensions for pharmaceutical, cosmetic, food, ink, paint, coating, wood product and metalworking industries.
Infiniscale is a provider of innovative software solutions that do address analog design challenges performance, parametrical DFY optimization and predictable time-to-market for next generation devices.
Infinitesima specialises in developing innovative accessories and advanced products based on scanning probe microscopy methods and techniques. These tools enable the visualisation and characterisation surfaces at a nanometre level.
The company is engaged in R&D and production of nanomaterials and nanomaterials production equipment. Production program covers mostly antibacterial products for healthcare (patches, bandages), hygiene (insoles), cleaning and food industry. The company also produces unique machines for polymerisation of nanolayers at textile materials 'INM Foulard' and exclusively distributes unique patented electrospinning devices 'MultiSpin' and electrospinning devices clima control units 'ClimaSpin'.
InMold Biosystems proprietary technology offers a radical new approach to increase the functionality of plasticware. Biomolecules, like proteins, may be transferred to flat or structured surfaces in a pattern with nanometer sized details by micro contact printing.
