Our current prototype systems are principally engineered for research related to particle characterization. They integrate critical functions while enabling the configuration of many upstream and downstream accessories.

 

Researchers focused on testing, instrumentation and public health may also be interested in the current generation of ES-DMA systems.

 

Read on to learn how ES-DMA applies to your focus area. 

MEDICAL RESEARCH

Structural Virology

With resolutions (FWHM) up to 100x, size ranges from 20-120 nm, and gentle treatments,  NanoRanger offers unprecedented ability to characterize VLPs in their native state.  Are capsids complete? Are protein envelopes in place? Are anti-bodies attached? These questions can now be answered.

Diabetes & CVD

With interest surging in metabolites such as remnant lipoprotein particles (RLPs) and accelerating recognition of Lipoprotein size as a biomarker, the need for fast, accurate detection and quantification of 20-100 nm particles is clear.

Cancer

Extracellular vesicles are recognized to play a huge role in cell-to-cell communications and consequently the spread of many cancers. NanoRanger is ready to heed the call for better tools to identify, characterize and quantify exomeres and exosomes that fall directly in the sweet-spot of ES-DMA.

ENVIRONMENTAL RESEARCH

Wildfires

Climate change

Many nano-particles in the atmosphere play a role in explaining climate change. Compared to mass spec, our systems offer faster, less expensive and more portable characterization and quantification of such particles.

Emissions

Recent studies have shown that nano-particles (1-100nm) may represent health hazards, sparking strong interest in their surveillance and characterization. Vehicles, power generation, manufacturing, and government regulatory policy are potential beneficiaries of the superior resolution of DMA.

Waste water monitoring

Waste water samples may be important predictors of pathogen outbreaks. Sample volumes are large and PCR may be cost and time prohibitive. ES-DMA needs to be explored for viability as a low-cost, continuous flow testing method. 

 

POINT OF CARE TESTING

Baby Stethoscope

Viral diagnostics

The big one. The reason we get up in the morning. Help us determine if ES-DMA is right for your chosen viral pathogen.

NO MORE PANDEMICS!

Threat protection

Not point-of-care, but point of presence. Military bases, government facilities, nursing homes, cruise ships and resorts, convention centers, corporate HQs, even the home. ES-DMA holds the promise of creating virus-free zones through screening.

Veterinary and Zoonotics

The ES-DMA method should be equally effective on humans, pets and livestock. With less red tape, we may see NanoEngineering systems in vets' offices before doctors' offices.

INDUSTRIAL APPLICATIONS

Nanoresins

Plastics manufacturers enhance their products with nano-sized resins as additives to impart special thermal, conductive and optical characteristics to end products.  Our systems can enhance process control and QC testing.

Viral Vector Manufacturing

The high resolution, low cost and continuous sampling features enable our systems to play a key role in measuring yield and testing for uniformity and contamination.

Standards

With resolutions similar to electron microscopy at a fraction of the cost and cycle time, ES-DMA can play a key role in the development of nano-particle standards.
