One startup, two employees and one really smart membrane

William Lee long suspected that nanostructured, intelligent membranes could solve many problems in one broad brush. His startup company aims to prove that theory right. eMembrane Inc., based in a business incubator affiliated with Brown University, has developed a technology to graft nanoscale filaments onto a polymer surface. Those filaments can then be customized to bind to specific targets such as ions, proteins or whole cells as they wash across the surface – much like a hairbrush captures hair in its bristles.
