Develops in-vitro models of cell and tissue systems. They simulate the transport of substances and formulations across biological barriers, from which conclusions regarding permeability and absorption can be drawn.
AnalytikJena is a specialist in the field of optical spectroscopy and elemental analytics. Building on this experience and successes, Analytik Jena increasingly uses its knowledge to solve bioanalytical problems and brings its core competence to bear in this area.
AQura is a competence center for chemical, physical-chemical and biochemical analysis as well as safety testing. Services include molecular spectroscopy and AFM-based nano-indentation surface analysis.
Develops and supplies software, hardware and measurement as well as optimization services, which have a relation to surface mechanics. The activities are especially focused on thin coatings in the range from some micrometers down to a few nanometers.
Atotech is one of the world's leading suppliers of integrated production systems, chemistry and equipment for decorative and functional electroplating, semiconductor and printed circuit board manufacturing.
Aurion's Plasma Systems division offers complete systems for plasma assisted surface treatment, that means for surface cleaning and surface modification as well as coating and etching (PVD, PECVD, RIE, Microwave).
Applied X-ray Optics and High Precision Deposition - develops and applies various high precision deposition techniques for the production of nanometer single and multilayers showing sub-nanometer precision.
Applies nanotechnology across several product areas such as cosmetics where the companysupplies UV absorbers based on nanoparticulate zinc oxide and titanium dioxide; binders for facade coatings where inorganic nanoparticles are homogeneously incorporated into organic polymer particles of water-based dispersions; and plastics with nanoadditive which improves flowability during production.
The company is a service partner for all aspects of oligonucleotides. It developed and produced the world's first and only translucent orthodontic systems using novel nanotechnology polymer composite products.
Bioni's core business is the development, production and marketing of coatings to enhance the walls, facades and roofs of all manner of buildings. Based upon the latest scientific findings in nanotechnology and together with the researchers at the Fraunhofer Institute for Chemical Technology, Bioni has developed an effective nano-filler combination, which when used in both interior and facade paints, permanently prevents the formation of mould, bacteria and algae.
