July 27, 2005
Platypus Technologies has received a Phase I Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) grant for $200,000 from the National Cancer Institute. The grant is to develop a new liquid-crystal based technology for rapid quantification of protein activity, useful for cancer research.
Platypus Technologies was founded in 2000 to develop nanotechnology products for the physical and life sciences.
About Platypus Technologies:
Platypus Technologies, LLC develops, produces and markets nanotechnologies for the life sciences. We produce a variety of nano-structured surfaces for use in research and are also developing a range of products that derive from a proprietary platform technology using liquid crystals for the rapid detection of molecular interactions. This technology fuses recent advances in nano-scale science, materials science and molecular biology to provide advanced tools for proteomics, cell studies, environmental monitoring and in vitro diagnostics.
Currently, Platypus offers obliquely-deposited gold slides, gold-coated glass slides / mica / silicon wafers / coverslips, optically transparent polyurethane substrates with topography, Functionalization Kits and Contact Printing Kits.
