Vitamica

Vitamica is seeking to exploit a novel approach for determining the susceptibility of bacteria to antibiotics. Resistance of bacteria to antibiotics is an increasing problem across the world, resulting in poorer healthcare outcomes, higher costs and a reduction in the number of effective drugs.

 

Arago Biosciences

Arago Biosciences, a spin-out company from the University of Oxford’s Department of Chemistry, has designed a new way of detecting and quantifying molecules. The patent-protected technology allows users to carry out label-free imaging, localisation, and accurate mass determination of single biomolecules in solution. The approach has the potential to revolutionise the characterisation of molecular […]

NuNano

,

NuNano is a UK-based company specialising in the design and manufacture of probes for atomic force microscopy and cantilever-based sensor devices. It was founded in 2011 by Dr James Vicary and Professors Heinrich Hoerber and Mervyn Miles to bring new manufacturing methods and exemplary levels of customer service to an industry broadly unchanged in […]

Animal Dynamics

,

Animal Dynamics, a spin-out from the Department of Zoology at the University of Oxford, is developing a portfolio of products derived from research into evolutionary adaptations in flight, swimming, walking, and stealth, where nature has arrived at significant performance optimizations which can be applied to commercial products.

Xerion

Xerion Healthcare seeks to commercialise Dr Helen Townley’s Research Group’s work into the use of nano-particles in cancer for therapy, imaging and drug delivery.

The small size of nano-particles means they can passively accumulate in tumours due to the enhanced permeation and retention (EPR) effect, where certain sizes of molecules accumulate more in tumour cells […]
