The company develops and sells tools for biomedical research based on nanotechnologies. Our products range from nanoparticles in suspensions to engineered surfaces for applications within stem cell research.
The group is involved in the rapidly developing field of nanobiopharmacy. It focuses on tissue engineering (e.g. scaffolds for cartilage and skin replacement, differentiation of stem cells into chondrocytes), wound healing, gene therapy and targeted drug delivery (using above mentioned polysaccharides and their conjugates). The research and innovation is an integral part of the company activities. Due to recent investments in the state-of-the art laboratory equipment and experienced and motivated scientists the company creates a unique center for regenerative medicine research, including various in-vitro and in-vivo tests.
Developed a technology to compact DNA into complexes containing only a single molecule of DNA, resulting in a volume 30-1000 times smaller than other complexes. This simple difference makes Copernicus' "DNA nanoparticles" highly stable and uniquely able to deliver DNA to the nuclei of non-dividing human cells - which includes most cells in the body.
