We commercialise a unique technology platform, nanoMIPs - nanostructured Molecularly Imprinted Polymers for use as affinity reagents in: sensing, imaging, purification, analysis and diagnostics.
nanoMIPs are prepared via a proprietary imprinting process involving self-assembly of binding monomers around a target template – these monomers are then polymerised to generate a ‘chemical receptor’ with high affinity and specificity to the template. nanoMIPs are very stable and robust, have similar affinity and specificity to antibodies, and can be prepared for any target, including: small molecules, proteins, viruses and whole cells. NanoMIPs are also amenable to a wide range of functionalisation, e.g. they can be made magnetic or fluorescent.
