MANEUVERING MATTER ON A MOLECULAR SCALE
Develop advanced bio-medical tools for nanoscopic analysis of intact viruses, vaccines and virus-like particles to assist and improve biomedicine and public health efforts.
It all began in the Nobel Award winning mind of the late Prof. John Fenn of Yale University. His groundbreaking discoveries in the world of electrospray coupled with mass-spectrometry analysis technologies created capabilities which were deemed neccessary to analyze proteins and macromolecules. NanoEngineering was established to commercialize the extended research done at Yale and after a successful run in the homeland security sector, a fruitful collaboration with the US Army’s Edgewood (MD) Chem-Bio Center, directed NanoEngineering to continue development focusing on virus detection. Since then, we have been writing the future of non-DNA virus detection and prevention in public health and biomedicine.
OUR INNOVATIVE TECHNOLOGY
NanoEngineering's ESCRIM™ is an innovative table top, portable instrument which can rapidly and effectively screen saliva or other biofluid samples for a wide range of viruses simultaneously. The technology, developed in the labs of the Yale University School of Engineering, uses innovative sample preparation techniques, electrospray methods created by Prof. Juan de la Mora of Yale University and state-of-the-art ion mobility analyzers to measure particle size. Extensive R&D has enabled NEC to detect and measure a range of nanoparticle sizes not accessible by standard methods. Specifically, the ESCRIM™ can measure intact virus particles over a wide range of sizes, making it the most novel, non-DNA testing method for virus detection.
MARKETS AND APPLICATIONS
The current US virus diagnostics market is estimated at ~$30 Bn and is expected to grow to at least $34Bn by 2025. We have identified a substantial need within the market for non DNA-based tests as an orthagonal technique to the commonly used PCR.
Currently, viruses spreads are found only once they have reached pandemic levels. This is due to the lack of effecient methdos to continuously survey human, plant and animal populations for viruses. The ESCRIM™ will substantially decrease testing costs and time allowing for continuous monitoring of virus presence.
SAFETY MEASURES IN STRATEGIC LOCATIONS
Locations where large crowds gather (stadiums, concert venues, military bases, cruise ships, universities, etc.) as well as bottlenecks (airports, train stations, government offices, etc.) are susceptible to viral contaminations. The ESCRIM™ will act as current non-sterile table top units which detect hazerdous materials do, and provide an accurate indication of presence of pathogens in these sensitive locations.
OUR BOARD OF DIRECTORS
PROF. JUAN FERNANDEZ DE LA MORA
Prof. de la Mora is a world reknowned expert in ion mobility spectroscopy and particle measurement. Throughout his career he has led research, published numerous studies and registered several patents in the fields of ; electrostatic atomization of liquids from Taylor cones, applications to electrical propulsion, ion beam generation in vacuum, nanoparticle production and experimental techniques for high resolution size classification of nanometer particles. Prof. de la Mora took Prof. Fenn’s Nobel winning research on electrospray and created a knowledge base upon which NEC could be established. He has served as a professor at Yale University since 1981 following his Ph.D at the university and post-doctoral work at UCLA.
