Particle Sciences is an integrated provider of both standard and nanotechnology approaches to drug development and delivery. The company originally pioneered use of encapsulated ingredients and nanoparticles for sunscreens and personal care. In 1999 the company licensed a portion of its nanotechnology portfolio to BASF and focused its efforts on providing services to Life Sciences companies. Now, through a full range of formulation, analytic, and manufacturing services, Particle Sciences provides pharmaceutical companies with a complete and seamless development solution designed to minimize the time and risk between discovery and the clinic.
The company develops, produces and markets nanotechnologies for the life sciences. They produce a variety of nano-structured surfaces for use in research and are also developing a range of products that derive from a proprietary platform technology using liquid crystals for the rapid detection of molecular interactions.
Develops, manufactures, and sells a broad range of biological based materials and services essential for the manufacture of diagnostic tests, commercial bioproduction of therapeutic drugs,including clinically annotated DNA and RNA.
The company has leveraged its experience with magnetic nanomaterials and magnetic field energy to make antibodies tumoricidal and more therapeutically selective, without the side effects of conventional therapies.
Developed and manufactures a novel, biomaterial which utilizes hydrogel nanoparticles which aggregate to form a material of varying strength and elasticity which has extensive medical application including wound management and burn care, tissue regeneration and drug delivery devices.
