MicroDysis designs and markets biomedical and environmental devices and systems that use embedded carbon nanotubes to solve a wide variety of real-world problems. The Company's patented micro-molding fabrication and nanotube assembly techniques are able to embed vertically oriented carbon nanotubes into a polymer matrix. This approach increases the functionalized surface of a device by 10,000 times and provides an ideal matrix for attaching molecular probes and other chemically active absorbers for maximum detection sensitivity.
Nalco has a long history of work in nanotechnology dating to the 1950s and the development of colloidal silicas. Recent innovations such as Core Shell® polymers, modified at the molecular level for use in wastewater treatment and as process aids in papermaking, petroleum refining, mining and food and beverage processing. Joint venture partner in NanoSpecialties, an R&D company for nanotechnology water and process treatments.
NanoChem is at the forefront of providing unique protein-based polymers that provide competitive performance for various products and processes environmental concerns for the creation of non-toxic products for a wide range of industrial, agricultural and consumer markets.
The company invents, designs, and manufactures advanced nanoscale silver additives that add permanent, cost-effective, and environmentally friendly antimicrobial and performance-enhancing characteristics to consumer, commercial, and industrial products. The company markets its patent-protected and Oeko-Tex® approved antimicrobial solution under the SmartSilver® brand that has worldwide recognition.
Founded on commercial agreements with Rice University and the University of Houston, NanoRidge has exclusive licenses for the use of technologies focused on applications of carbon nanotubes and other nanoparticles for production and sales of advanced nanomaterials.
