Nano4 Global is a young start-up launched in 2015 to market innovative nanotechnology based molecular diagnostics.
Nano4 is pioneering a new high-confidence proprietary nanotechnology platform relying on more than 12 years of research and development at Universidade NOVA de Lisboa - Science and Technology, Department of Life Sciences.
Nano4 Global has a fully dedicated manufacturing lab. Located near Lisbon within a pharmaceutical campus hosting a Portuguese pharma company in Portugal. Nano4 Global manufacturing capability offer molecular diagnostic production and custom nanotechnology proficiency.
NANO4 Platform relies on a colorimetric molecular diagnostic method based on gold nanoparticles that provide fast and specific identification of a DNA or RNA biomarker.
NANO4 platform provides a colorimetric molecular diagnostic method based on gold nanoprobes that allow fast and specific identification of a DNA or RNA biomarker. The friendly use of Nano4 nanodiagnostics puts forward a fast, accurate, affordable technology - the next generation of molecular nanodiagnostics.
NANO4 is the next generation of molecular nanodiagnostics applied to life sciences that provides simple readout depending on the biomarker.
NANO4 is an award winning technology - Santander Totta/NOVAScientific Prize.
Gold nanoprobes provide a visual
colorimetric change to identify
the desired DNA/RNA sequence.
- fast colorimetric output
- affordable and user friendly
(no dedicated apparatus needed)
Due to the easy and simple operation, NANO4 will impact the way molecular diagnostics are performed and will lead the decentralization of molecular diagnostics - from genetics lab to point of need.
|BLANK||Gold nanoprobes provide a visual colorimetric change that identifies a DNA/RNA sequence.|
|POSITIVE||Target DNA/RNA prevents aggregation. Solution remains RED after revelator.|
|NEGATIVE||Gold nanoprobes aggregates in contact with a revelator. color changes RED to BLUE|
