The company develops and synthesizes metal-free, biocompatible silicon quantum dots and semiconductor nanoparticles for a broad range of applications in sensing, energy, displays, security and bio-imaging.
The main expertise of CAN GmbH is the production of various nanoscaled materials like fluorescent, magnetic and catalytically-active nanocrystals. These products are marketed under the brand CANdots and are dispersible in polar or unpolar media readily available for applications in research and industry.
Crystalplex develops and commercializes innovative fluorescent markers for use in basic life science research, pharmaceutical research, diagnostics and histology. The technology is based on proprietary composition-tunable nanocrystals (quantum dots).
Quantum Materials Corporation (QMC) is now commercializing a low cost quantum dot technology of a superior quality and characteristics. This revolutionary new quantum dot production technique, developed by Dr. Michael S. Wong and colleagues of William Marsh Rice University, Houston, TX., has been acquired under an exclusive, world-wide license. Our new synthesis method is mass producible using continuous flow technology processes developed in conjunction with Access2Flow microreactor technology. QMC's research and development group was instrumental in developing the new scaling-up process.
