German nanotechnology firms Nanosolutions and Capsulution NanoScience are to jointly develop a new generation of multifunctional nano-sensors for IVD applications. Their research will include the development of hollow capsule-sensors, whereby the nanometer-thin wall will be equipped with various functional nano-particles. The companies' long-term goal is to combine diagnostics and therapy in order to develop "personalised" medicines. Nanosolutions of Hamburg is currently establishing novel manufacturing processes in nanotechnology that can offer tailor-made customer-specific solutions. Capsulution, based in Berlin, is a developer of nano- and micro-sized capsules designed to function according to its intended application.
