Nanosynth Plc and its subsidiaries, Pharm2Farm and Virosynth, continue to undertake research & development and collaborate with a wide range of partners.
What are the benefits of Nano applications?
Nanotechnology increases the performance of the existing product and achieve significantly improved results and consistency. Typical benefits of nanotech include scratch resistance, quality of coating, liquid dispersion, thermal stability, anti-pathogenic enhanced to achieve significantly better performance due to uniformity of particle size and functionalization, Nanotech also has the ability to significantly improve product performance and still maintain “bio” credentials by leveraging high product consistency due to uniformity of particle size, and create a high level of natural uptake/ bioavailability
Dr Gareth Cave –
Nanoparticles are typically in the 1 to 100 nanometre (nm) size range and are made up of only a few hundred to thousand atoms. For context, a single atom is around 0.1 nm, viruses are about 100 nm, red blood cells are approximately 5,000 nm and the diameter of a human hair is typically 100,000 nm in size. Their small size not only facilitates interactions at the biological scale (e.g. anti-viral, cancer therapies and nutritional uptake) but also results in unique mechanical and quantum mechanical properties that can be used in molecular electronics and material engineering (e.g. medical imaging, semiconductors and photocatalysts).
