Platform Technology with Tremendous Commercial Potential

nanopore enhanced enzyme device
Nanopore Enhanced Enzyme Device

Key Properties

  • Immobilized enzyme can be reused many times
  • Reaction can occur in continuous flow mode instead of batch mode
  • Product can be separated from reactants during reaction, which promotes reaction rate
  • Reaction and separation done in one continuous flow operation
  • Column can be regenerated by effluent wash after saturation
  • Process is suitable for large-scale operation and can be fully automated

Optical Coatings
  • Wet chemistry process, no vacuum needed
  • Sol-gel process to prepare optical transparent coatings
  • Anti-glare/anti-reflective or high reflective coatings
  • Low cost process
  • Ready to apply to large surfaces
  • Application including: lenses, solar panel, display screens, architecture glasses, protection films, etc.
nanotechnology for drug delivery
Nanotechnology for Drug Delivery

Collaboration with University of Michigan’s College of Pharmacy

  • Silica-Chitosan Composite
    • Funding: Phase I SBIR (2004)
    • Applying for Phase II

Key Properties

    • Controlled release for ulcer treatment. Maximizes efficacy while minimizing side effects
    • Silica-Chitosan composite has increased residence time in stomach (highly acidic).
    • Entangled network of chitosan and silica molecules maintain structural integrity
  • Low MW Protamine (LMWP)
    • Funding: Phase I STTR, Phase II SBIR (2002)
    • Pursuing IND from FDA

Key Properties

    • Drug use for non-toxic heparin neutralization which can also be used for drug and gene delivery
    • Able to translocate through cell membranes (structural similarities to HIV-TAT protein)
    • CSMG technology utalized to optimize thermolysin immobilization for continuous production of LMWP
