The pharmaceutical industry is moving towards nanoparticles as vehicles for drug delivery in various forms. Therefore, separation, size characterization and purification of biological nanoparticles will be a fundamental necessity in the near future. Conventional chromatography techniques that use a stationary phase have serious limitations that will prevent them from serving this industry efficiently. In addition, often the use of such instruments require expert personnel for operating and trouble shooting purposes. Imessa Research is developing an instrument that will separate and characterize bio nanoparticles based on their interaction with a physical force rather than a stationary phase. The instrument will cover a broad range of a few nanometers to hundreds of nanometers. A user-friendly software, turn-key design, and an innovative customer support model will ensure facile use of the instrument by the industry and non-expert users.
Provided lab space for our employees as we progress and grow this start-up biotech company
Altitude is an enriching environment that provides countless opportunities for our company to grow, network, fundraise, and further develop our products.
Lauryn and Chandana have been excellent. They consistently go above and beyond their duties to help my company and me be successful. They have been instrumental in getting us connected with vendors, equipment set up, lab issues resolved, and so much more. They are always more than willing to help with whatever questions I may have. It has been an absolute pleasure to work with them.
The lab space has been extremely helpful, having access to all the equipment has been crucial for company progression.
Residence allowed our company to begin running experiments and moving forward while we raised capital for our own equipment and space.
Being able to access the lab facilities has been amazing! As well as having access to a community of other scientists for help and to learn from.
Altitude Lab has served us as a great launch pad. Before we started the company, we did not fully appreciate the logistical intensity of starting a biotech. Altitude lab has allowed us focus on our science while the rest of the lab needs and so much more were taken care of for us.
Lab space, and being able to move/work away from the university has been huge for us. From a technology standpoint as well as allowing us to work faster and more efficiently. Having a working environment (desks) where we can grow and collaborate has been useful too. The space allows us to be dynamic as we grow and our needs change
The key thing is infrastructure for us. We've been able to navigate legal stuff and fundraising without a ton of outside help but having a physical space to receive shipments on our behalf and instrumentation for us to use has really helped. I expect that benefit to jump when we finally move our lab operations there!
Having an affordable place to set up our lab and do our initial work is beyond measurable value. Also, the ability to connect with others in the same space for advice and shared experience is also incredibly helpful.
