Promethia’s nano-enhanced gels are a new responsive materials offering better resolution and reinforcement to prevent tearing. Our advanced gel is embedded with benign nanoparticles which can be positioned by an external field, allowing the researcher to tune gel pore shapes critical to separation. Tougher gels, better resolution.
Primary Application Area: Biotech & Biological Sciences
Technology Development Status: Concept
Technology Readiness Level: TRL 3
FIGURES OF MERIT
Value Proposition: Promethia’s nano-enhanced gels are modified (a new class of responsive materials), offering better resolution and reinforcement to prevent tearing. Better gels means protein separations that were previously not possible, faster analysis, less waste in research informed by bio-markers.
Organization Type: Early-stage Startup (Seed)
