Chemical giant offshoots establish local start-ups

Abstract:
Phoenix S&T, of Elkton, Md., was launched by a former DuPont scientist, Sau Lan Tang Staats, who uses micromolding technology to make plastic nozzles used in nanoscale protein analysis by pharmaceutical companies in drug research and development.


Nanotechnology. In North Wilmington, NanoDrop Technologies Inc. was started in 2000 by Charles Robertson, a DuPont physicist for 28 years. Based on technology developed at DuPont Agriculture Genomics Laboratories, NanoDrop manufactures and sells laboratory instruments that analyze samples as tiny as 1/20th of a drop, or 1 to 2 microliters. NanoDrop sells the devices to university and government labs and to the pharmaceutical industry in the United States and 70 countries for use in analyzing DNA and protein samples. NanoDrop has 30 employees, and almost one-third came from DuPont.
