Washington U. researchers start nanotech firm PixelEXX Systems

Abstract:
Nanotechnology company PixelEXX Systems has been launched by researchers from Washington University in St. Louis to bring nanoarrays to market. The founders are Dr. Samuel Wickline and Stuart Solin, who are co-presidents, and Kirk Wallace and Mike Hughes.

The technology holds potential for cancer and drug research, according to a release from Washington University and BioGenerator, a nonprofit corporation that facilitates the formation of plant and life science companies in the St. Louis area.

"Nanoarrays are a new way of imaging cells," Wickline said in a statement. "A researcher can look at a living cell with nano-sized sensors to get a more detailed picture of the cell, its internal structures, and how those parts function."
