RD Graphene was incorporated after winning the Scottish Higgs Edge 2016 for its transformational, patent pending Graphene manufacturing process. The invented process is disruptive as it enables the use of Graphene in an unlimited number of applications. Industry standard cycle times to produce Graphene is around 17 hours, making it cost-prohibitive for applications. RD Graphene?s truly design-for-manufacture (DFM) process creates 3D graphene at room temperature on any surface with cycle times in seconds and therefore enables high volume manufacture. Application sectors for this ground breaking technology are (bio-) sensors, energy, flexible electronics, wearables, water treatment and many more.
ROAR is involved in the research, development and manufacturing of nanotechnology derived particles for commercial applications. In the short to medium term, the company will concentrate in supplying nanoparticles used for forensic, immigration and sports testing applications.
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.
