BioPAL provides products and methods to measure in vivo organ function and to track compounds-of-interest in in vivo systems. Products developed for neutron activation technology include nanocolloids for labeling, tracking and quantifying cells in in vivo models.
Through its diagnostic program, Biophage is developing a biosensor using an innovative nanotechnology. These nanosensors are based on impedance spectroscopy, an enabling technology that can detect and quantify microbial pathogens in real-time. The unique nanosensors will be built from various proprietary technologies already developed by Biophage (biocapture molecule: phages and antibodies) and by the Biotechnology Research Institute-NRC (signal generation and detection).
The company has a polymer micro-system technology platform comprising core intellectual property in the areas of polymer multilevel micro- and nano-replication, plastic micro-fluidic chip fabrication and photonics integration, to provide unique products for point-of-use analytical applications.
Blend Therapeutics is a biopharmaceutical company discovering new classes of medicines to treat debilitating diseases. The company is pioneering an integrative way to discover molecular entities with new mechanisms of action purposely designed for our proprietary nanoparticles. By synergistically developing both the molecule and the nanoparticle together they can make medicines more targeted, more effective and more tolerable.
Calevia aims to harness the power of molecular targeting technologies and the heat-generation capacity of MesoGraf Xide, a photo-responsive graphene material, to create bio-conjugates designed to home-in on - and destroy - cancer cells in a non-invasive, non-pharmacological and efficient manner.
A leading provider of cutting-edge technologies enabling researchers in the life sciences to create life-saving and enhancing medicines and diagnostic tests more quickly and efficiently. Caliper has compiled numerous best-in-class solutions and is aggressively innovating new technologies to bridge the gaps that exist in bringing in vitro assays to in vivo results and ultimately into cures for human disease.
Camurus specializes in the development of pharmaceuticals based on advanced and effective innovative nanoscale drug delivery systems that optimize the bioavailability and therapeutic performance of a wide range of difficult substances, including: peptides, proteins, and insoluble small molecules.
Celera has a successful molecular diagnostics business and powerful genomic and proteomic discovery platforms that have identified and validated new drug targets and biomarkers that will advance the practice of Targeted Medicine.
Celsense is a biotechnology company offering novel MRI contrast agents (fluorochemical nanoparticles) that allow scientists and clinicians to monitor the position and quantity of transplanted cells non-invasively in vivo.
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.
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
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.
The group is involved in the rapidly developing field of nanobiopharmacy. It focuses on tissue engineering (e.g. scaffolds for cartilage and skin replacement, differentiation of stem cells into chondrocytes), wound healing, gene therapy and targeted drug delivery (using above mentioned polysaccharides and their conjugates). The research and innovation is an integral part of the company activities. Due to recent investments in the state-of-the art laboratory equipment and experienced and motivated scientists the company creates a unique center for regenerative medicine research, including various in-vitro and in-vivo tests.
Developed a technology to compact DNA into complexes containing only a single molecule of DNA, resulting in a volume 30-1000 times smaller than other complexes. This simple difference makes Copernicus' "DNA nanoparticles" highly stable and uniquely able to deliver DNA to the nuclei of non-dividing human cells - which includes most cells in the body.
