Electronics and Semiconductor Industries
Lightwave Logic is the producer of our "Game Changing Next Generation Electro-Optic Material Platform", plastics (polymers). These molecularly engineered "nano-materials" exhibit unprecedented stability and electrooptic susceptibility, breaking open broad new applications and markets in fiberoptic telecom and high-speed computation.
NanoSelect is a nanotechnology company developing chemical and biological sensors to monitor the quality and safety of our municipal water supply systems. Nanotechnology serves as the platform for the Company's sensors, which offers a breakthrough in capabilities over state-of-the-art products. The Company's technology stems from the research conducted at the University of Pennsylvania's Laboratory for Research on the Structure of Matter (LRSM).
Aerogel Composite, LLC's primary objective is to develop and supply aerogel based composite materials for a wide variety of industries. Aerogel Composite has developed a carbon aerogel based electrocatalyst for use in the manufacturing of fuel cell electrodes. The catalyst can reduce the platinum requirements for fuel cell vehicles to approximately 30% of current levels while improving performance.
454 Life Sciences, a center of excellence of Roche Applied Science, develops and commercializes the innovative Genome Sequencer™ system for ultra-high-throughput DNA sequencing. Specific applications include de novo sequencing and re-sequencing of genomes, metagenomics, RNA analysis, and targeted sequencing of DNA regions of interest. The hallmarks of 454 Sequencing™ are its simple, unbiased sample preparation and long, highly accurate sequence reads, including paired reads.
