Through its diagnostic program, Biophage is developing a biosensor using an innovative nanotechnology. These nanosensors are based on impedance spectroscopy, an enabling technology that can detect and quantify microbial pathogens in real-time. The unique nanosensors will be built from various proprietary technologies already developed by Biophage (biocapture molecule: phages and antibodies) and by the Biotechnology Research Institute-NRC (signal generation and detection).
Nicoya is a nanotechnology company developing novel sensor products. The company's flagship product is OpenSPR - a compact, sensitive, and affordable surface plasmon resonance instrument for molecular analysis.
