UALR nanotech center draws three companies
Three companies are the first to join the fledgling Nanotechnology Center at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock.
The year-old business incubator is working on a small budget, said Mary Good, dean of UALR's College of Information Science and Systems Engineering, in an interview during a nanotechnology discussion at the college on Tuesday.
The first companies in the incubator are Orlumet, which is working on tissue engineering; Ryan Nanaero, which is developing nanotechnology for deicing aircraft; and Chemseeka, which is working to shrink a mass spectrometer to fit on a microchip, said Tom Walker, director of the Nanotechnology Center and UALR's vice provost for innovation and commercialization. A mass spectrometer is an instrument that weighs molecules.
