ANT has strategic focus in the research, development and manufacture of real time and near real time diagnostics to detect biochemical discharges in manufacturing and environmental situations. The company currently concentrates on the following biochemical detection systems: Enzymes, Dioxins, Estrogen Steroids.
The company develops unique molecular delivery systems. Its spherical micrometer sizes polymer particles act like micro sponges and absorb molecules while the sub-micrometer sized Hollow silica shells have an internal void space and act much like a standard container.
Genetix is an independent business unit within Leica Microsystems. The company provides scientists and clinicians with unrivalled solutions for imaging and intelligent image analysis in the life science and clinical markets.
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.
Intelligent Fingerprinting has developed a prototype hand-held device that will allow rapid accurate screening of individuals operationally in the field where testing results are needed most. The device utilizes gold nanoparticles, novel micro-fluidics and optics that enable samples to be analyzed in only a few minutes on disposable cartridges.
The company specializes in providing protein engineering to pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies for the discovery, identification and design of new peptide, polypeptide, protein and antibody compounds using their proprietary technology.
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.
