NanoMedical Systems (NMS) is a startup company, which will commercialize the patented research of Dr. Mauro Ferrari at the University of Texas Health Science Center in Houston, a sponsored research site and a source of licensed IP for NMS. The company's Personalized Molecular Drug-delivery System (PMDS) is a small drug delivery device that is implanted subcutaneously (just under the skin) for slow and consistent release of a therapeutic agent over many weeks or months. A nanochannel delivery system (nDS) embodied on a silicon chip regulates the flow of therapeutic molecules.
Nanometics is a chemical research company dedicated to the development of novel raw materials for the personal care and textile industries. In addition, there are several ongoing collaborations in projects relating to biomedical imaging, chiral molecular switches for quantum computing and supramolecular chemistry for neural prosthetics.
Nanometrics' product lines offer an extensive array of proprietary technologies in optics, software and systems integration designed to meet the process control requirements of today's advanced semiconductor technologies.
NanoNutrients is devoted to the development and production of 'Nano Nutrients' and their associated technologies. The company strives to meet the nanotechnology needs of food and supplement companies that deal in both liquid and non-liquid based products.
Nanopartz™ is recognized as both an innovator and a quality supplier of gold nanoparticle based products including spherical gold nanoparticles and gold nanorods. Products developed at Nanopartz™ constitute the essential core technology for the life sciences in diagnostics, imaging, and therapeutics. In other fields, Nanopartz™ products are perfectly suited for sensors, solar cells, liquid crystals, non-linear optics, polarizers, negative refractive index materials, standards, and as robust subcomponents in electronics. The company offers products for the researcher as well as the materials manufacturer.
NanoPhotonica brings innovative nanomaterials and production techniques to enable market-altering improvements to displays, solar panels, as well as other electronic device industries. The increased conductivity of their materials enhances electrical-optical conversion, and its ability to act as a moisture, oxygen and UV barrier prevents premature degradation and increases device lifespan.
A development-stage technology company creating photolytic, photovoltaic, and photocatalytic products arising from its technology platform, in which nano-structured plastic templates cause high local stresses in applied thin film semiconductors, thereby shifting their bandgap for more efficient solar absorption.
nanoRETE, Inc. provides real-time detection of pathogens using customized nanoparticle biosensors. The company has developed a platform that has the ability to test for numerous pathogens (anthrax, E. Coli, salmonella, tuberculosis, etc.) using a simple-to-use handheld device which generates screening results in about one hour.
