Developer of ultra-miniaturized nanoarray technologies. Molecular analysis systems are capable of providing nanometer scale, single molecule resolution. Applications in proteomics, diagnostics, and therapeutics.
Covaris, Inc. is a life science instrument company. Its proprietary instrument platform, based on patented Adaptive Focused Acoustic (AFA) technology brings unsurpassed speed and efficiency to biological and chemical sample preparation. The AFA process, based on shock wave physics, delivers controlled, precise and accurate energy to biological and chemical samples.
The company's NLP technology produces a generation of particles which retains the strength of the Dermazone Solutions' (SDMC) technologies, but includes the ability to produce particles of 60 nanometers to 150 nanometers which are optically clear. The use of this generation of lipid-based particle delivery system provides the ability to control the size of the final particle by controlling the number of NLPs used to assemble the finished particle. This system maintains very high loading capacity of passenger molecules and uses only safe, all natural ingredients to form both the NLPs and the final delivery system.
Dune Sciences is an emerging technology company specializing in products and services that will facilitate the development and commercialization of nano-enabled products. The company employs several patented and patent-pending technologies to engineer interfaces for the integration of new materials and devices in medicine, bionanotechnology, energy technologies, and nanoscience.
The company manufactures the Bio-Assembler, a device for culturing cells in three-dimensions by magnetic levitation. The Bio-Assembler combines nanoparticle based Nanoshuttle-PL with designed magnetic fields needed to levitate cells and provide the 3D cell growth environment.
The company's nanofluidization process utilizes a proprietary nanotechnology process which allows molecules to be embedded into nanosuspensions (or nanodroplets) and microdroplets of between about 10 nm to about 10 µm in size, which are used to create highly solulable, stable and uniform emulsions/dispersions.
The company is developing intelligent medicine products internally and in partnership with device, pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies. These products address therapeutic areas where disease management complexity, patient monitoring requirements, therapeutic efficacy, and poor patient adherence create large clinical and commercial opportunities.
WaveSense develops, manufactures, and markets breakthrough analytical nanotechnologies for use in cellular and molecular assay markets. The company's patented and hierarchy technology is called Xenographic Retention Chromatography (XRC) - branded as EpiSep, which is a lateral flow separations platform that provides rapid, advanced detection and characterization of live cells, proteins, and/or genes. Researchers can then harvest the targets for interrogation purposes within their desired application.
