Oxford Nanopore Technologies Ltd is developing nanopore technology, a revolutionary method of molecular detection and analysis with potential applications in DNA sequencing, diagnostics, drug development and defence.
Combining recent advances in nanofabrication, biochemistry, molecular biology, surface chemistry and optics, the company has created a powerful technology platform called single molecule, real-time, or SMRT, technology. SMRT technology enables real-time analysis of biomolecules with single molecule resolution, which has the potential to transform our understanding of biological systems by providing a window into these systems that has not previously been open for scientific study.
A provider of innovative technologies and products for preanalytical sample preparation and molecular diagnostics solutions such as the HiLight Array System that uses Resonance Light Scattering (RLS), a technology based on the optical light scattering properties of nano-sized metal colloid particles.
Quanterix Corporation is developing a novel platform for single molecule analysis that will bring an unprecedented level of sensitivity, precision, and assay robustness to clinical diagnostics, drug development, and life science research.
Randox Food Diagnostics is a division of Randox Laboratories who have 30 years experience in the diagnostic market and a devoted research and development team. Randox Food Diagnostics is a dedicated company responsible for the distribution of Randox drug residue kits, wine testing kits and analysers worldwide. Randox Food Diagnostics incorporate several market related products dedicated to the food, wine and beverage industries. Randox uses in house developed antibodies and conjugates for a wide range of their screening products including the patented Biochip Array Technology (multiplex screening platform).
Senova Systems owns an exclusive worldwide license from Oxford University for a breakthrough pH sensor that does not require calibration, is not subject to fouling, and does not drift with changes in temperature. The company is developing these revolutionary new pH Meters to meet specific needs in all process industries.
Silicon Biosystems has developed a set of proprietary solutions called lab-on-a-chip technologies, targeted at miniaturized cell-biology testing. Silicon Biosystems exploits the microelectronics potential in order to produce miniaturized cellular biology laboratories.
Sphere is commercializing picodroplet technology from Cambridge University that can perform thousands of simultaneous reactions on single cells and molecules contained within aqueous droplets, fractions of a millimeter in size. This platform enables diverse applications including: miniaturized profiling of drug candidates, generation of new biocatalysts and identification of novel algal strains.
T2 Biosystems is creating a new generation of lab-quality diagnostic tools. Its technology is based on superparamagnetic nanoparticles. NanoDx particles have a superparamagnetic metal core surrounded by a polymer layer decorated by multiple analyte-specific binding agents. This nanoparticle platform can be used with a variety of binding agents such as antibodies, nucleic acids and small molecules.
The company sells nanowire sensing devices for molecular diagnostics - real-time, continuous flow and label free over 5 logs dynamic range to 10s of fm/mL sensitivity of proteins, nucleic acid and viruses. Virus LOD is single viruses.
Offers new culture and exposure systems for in vitro studies of gases or complex mixtures. The VITROCELL modules offer new possibilities for the characterization of the effects of airborne substances such as gases nanoparticles and complex mixtures.
