CAN offers contract research and development services in the area of chemical nanotechnology and nanoparticle synthesis. The company claims broad expertise in the production of various nanoparticulate and nanocomposite materials, encapsulation of active ingredients as well as development of nanoparticle-based biological and medical markers.
Centrosolar Glas is the first glass finisher in the world with fully integrated, automatic batch production of solar glass. It incorporates the processes of trimming, edge processing, coating, tempering and packing to customer-specific requirements. The anti-reflective coating (CENTROSOL HiT) is applied in clean-room conditions using coating facilities developed by Centrosolar Glas itself. Both the reflection colour and the maximum transmission wavelength of the nanocoating can be adjusted on request.
Ceramatec has produced many proprietary materials for device fabrication such as castable nanoceramics. The company also synthesizes nano-powders using a proprietary powder synthesis process that results in very high purity, high-quality, un-agglomerated, high surface area, nanocrystalline ceramic powders.
Commercializes a nano and micron sized ceramic spheres technology that provides encapsulation and controlled release of active molecules for a variety of applications including drug delivery, cosmeceuticals and speciality chemicals.
Ceres uses its Nanotrap technology - a spherical, carbon-based nanoparticle designed to collect, concentrate, isolate and preserve the smallest and scarcest of molecules found in body fluids - to pursue a range of applications in the diagnosis and treatment of diseases, as well as uses in sports screening, homeland security and environmental remediation.
The company develops and sells a series of acrylate nanocomposite coatings under the trade name CETOSIL that contain up to 30% of nano-sized silica. The use of special surface grafted silica nanoparticles ensures the transparency and low viscosity of the coatings.
Develops technologies for the production and application of nanomaterials for a broad range of end uses - advanced simulation software, collaborative R&D, and consultation services for the analysis, design and optimization of nanomaterial fabrication processes. CFSRC's simulation tools enable rapid screening of concepts for both production and use of nanomaterials, optimization of downselected designs and processes, and rapid product development.
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.
A joint initiative by BASF and the TechnologieZentrum Ludwigshafen (TZL) to offer full service start-up support to new companies in the areas of chemistry, nanotechnology, new materials, bio-technology and process and analytical technology.
Chemicon offers molecular biology research tools. Included are mRNA expression analysis assays via RT-PCR and PCR amplication methods for apoptosis, cancer, cytokines, signal transduction, MMPs and ECM using colorimetric or bioluminescent formats
