A German SME, active in the field of nanotechnology, is specialized in the field of surface functionalization using Molecular Surface Engineering (MSE).
For the development of multiplex or multiparameter assays the company supports different approaches based on the following product families. These can be used as starting points for the development of customized solutions for new multiplex platforms or new diagnostic concepts:
Consumables for microarrays: The company is a leading producer of functionalized substrates for microarrays. The wide range of surfaces, substrates and accessories for microarrays enables the customers to select the most suitable substrate for their specific application.
Microparticles and submicron particles: The SME is offering a broad portfolio of monodisperse microparticles (beads) for multiplex bead assays, agglutination and cell applications. The company’s microparticles can be color-encoded with a wide range of fluorescent dyes and functionalized with reactive 3D-matrices.
Functionalized microplates for immunoassays: Amine binding, 3D-Azide, 3D-Aldehyde and Streptavidin coated 96-well plates for challenging ELISA (Enzyme-linked Immunosorbent Assay) applications as well as functionalized PCR (polymerase chain reaction) plates for bio-orthogonal immobilization of molecules.
The company is looking for partners that are interested in developing new multiplex assays for in-vitro diagnostics, veterinary diagnostics, bioanalytics and pharma research. The cooperation could be based on a research cooperation agreement in the form of joint research or contract research. The SME also offers the opportunity of tailored development of similar technologies on the basis of a manufacturing agreement.
