ProChimia Surfaces is a privately held company established in 2005 and located in Sopot, Poland. Capitalising on expertise in chemistry, nanotechnology and biotechnology ProChimia Surfaces delivers state-of-the-art solutions for modification of surfaces and materials.
Company business main components are: (I) design and manufacture of metal nanoparticles functionalized with ligands (charged, pH-sensitive, biospecific) and (II) synthesis and market of chemicals for self-assembled monolayers (SAMs). The compounds we design are unique and can be used to modify e.g. gold, silver, silicon, oxide or composite surfaces. The SAMs formed by our chemicals impart the surfaces being coated with various properties, including bioresistance to non-specific binding of proteins or cells, reactivity toward specific molecules, controlled hyrdophobicity, electrochemical or optical activity and more. The company also offers custom research services in the fields of chemical and nanosynthesis.
During the 4-year project ProChimia’s specialists will contribute to the development of the optimised and pharma-industry applicable process of thiolated ligands synthesis for gold nanoparticle construction: a key component of Midatech’s GNP technology.
