With a substantial market opportunity it is no surprise that work in nanomagnets and magnetic nanoparticles is very competitive. Even a small piece of the market will spell success for firms who can revolutionize diagnostic or biochemical protocols. Big and small companies alike are racing to commercialize magnetic technology for a broad range of applications.
Turbobeads technology stands apart from its competition for three important reasons:
1. Turbobeads has solved many key problems associated with magnetic nanoparticle-based protocols and separation. Years ago, we understood the potential of chemically stable and reliable, high-strength nanomagnets and the issues blocking their commercial deployment. That's why we have been working on solving magnetic core strength and protection shell design and attachment issues, before they have become commercial problems. Today we have key patent filings that reliably solve these issues- making Turbobeads the technology of choice for challenging processes, protocols and large scale separation.
2. Turbobeads is capitalizing on reliability and stability first. We anticipate great creativity from the side of our customers when provided with the possibility to virtually move any molecule, polymer, protein or reagent at will through attachment of a metal nanomagnet. The near-universal use of nanomagnets provides a platform merging classical mechanics and chemistry or biology. Competitive companies have products that are too complex (heavy, multi-shell particles), too expensive (gold or platinum shells) and plagued with stability problems (iron oxide dissolves easily, polymers swell in solvents) preventing them from delivering performance- based solutions on a commercial scale.
3. Turbobeads has owned its share of nanomagnet technology for over five years, much longer than most other companies. Turbobeads has pioneered the concept of magnetic chemistry, changing the way we think about organic synthesis. This gives Turbobeads an edge over the competition because the company understands the long term potential of reliable nanomagnets. Turbobeadsí patent position is extremely secure, and Turbobeadsí technology and market intelligence leads the development of metal nanomagnets and magnetic chemistry.
