Location:HI, US
Speaker:Cathy Owen
Title:President
Primary Industry:Health & Medical Devices
Executive Summary:Nanopoint Inc. is a biophotonics company that will revolutionize the study and treatment of diseases, and accelerate the discovery and development of new life saving drugs. Nanopoint’s technology provides the basis for a set of enabling tools including intra-cellular optical imaging instrumentation, imaging software, and a set of consumables to feed the biomedical and pharmaceutical industries, as they undergo significant growth. Using Nanopoint’s 50nm resolution intra-cellular imaging technology, researchers will be able for the first time to obtain high quality, real time information about drug targets, lead compounds being tested and their toxicity profiles. These nanotechnologies and their application will lead to more reliable drugs and a significant reduction in drug discovery and development costs. Nanopoint’s solutions also enable new types of intra-cellular experiments essential to accelerating developments in stem cell research, pharmacogenomics, and biological applications that can lead to a greater understanding of complex human diseases, their treatments, and ultimately, their prevention.
