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.
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
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.
Covaris, Inc. is a life science instrument company. Its proprietary instrument platform, based on patented Adaptive Focused Acoustic (AFA) technology brings unsurpassed speed and efficiency to biological and chemical sample preparation.

Delpor develops the next generation Drug Delivery Systems that improve the clinical and commercial value of drugs and biopharmaceuticals. The company also has developed a microfabricated nanopore device for the sustained release of therapeutic agents.
The company's NLP technology produces a generation of particles which retains the strength of the Dermazone Solutions' (SDMC) technologies, but includes the ability to produce particles of 60 nanometers to 150 nanometers which are optically clear. The use of this generation of lipid-based particle delivery system provides the ability to control the size of the final particle by controlling the number of NLPs used to assemble the finished particle. This system maintains very high loading capacity of passenger molecules and uses only safe, all natural ingredients to form both the NLPs and the final delivery system.
