The main expertise of CAN GmbH is the production of various nanoscaled materials like fluorescent, magnetic and catalytically-active nanocrystals. These products are marketed under the brand CANdots and are dispersible in polar or unpolar media readily available for applications in research and industry.
Carbodeon supplies superhard materials for applications where toughness is at a premium. The company's eight different grades of Ultra-Dispersed Diamonds - also known as nano diamonds - each possess the desired properties fine-tuned for a growing number of dedicated applications. These grades are sold under the name uDiamond.
The company provides development, production and supply of unique nanoporous carbon materials, such as carbide derived carbons, ternary carbides, carbon onions, graphene and exfoliated graphene as well as materials characterization, design and manufacturing of equipment for carbon nanomaterials production.
The company acquired substantially all of the assets of SouthWest NanoTechnologies (SWeNT) and has reopened the state-of-the-art Carbon Nanotube (CNT) plant in Norman, Oklahoma. They manufacture high-quality single-wall and few-wall CNT materials made using the patented CoMoCAT™ process under an exclusive license with the University of Oklahoma.
The company develops and sells tools for biomedical research based on nanotechnologies. Our products range from nanoparticles in suspensions to engineered surfaces for applications within stem cell research.
Crystalplex develops and commercializes innovative fluorescent markers for use in basic life science research, pharmaceutical research, diagnostics and histology. The technology is based on proprietary composition-tunable nanocrystals (quantum dots).
