Executive Summary

Affinergy has--patented and in the freezer--peptide binders that stick specifically to the common materials of which medical implants are made, for example, collagen, titanium and stainless steel. These are the starting point for the company's device coating platform. The other part of the biocoating, which attaches to the device-binding peptide by a linker, is a peptide that binds to a specific protein or cell type of interest to a partner.
