Amphiphilic Block Copolymers

BioCure is experienced in the synthesis of biocompatible amphiphilic block copolymers.

Mimicking the mechanics of cells, block copolymers self-assemble to create nano barriers that are thicker and more stable than nature. 

Some of the identified applications are:

Filtration
The structure created by the self-assembled molecules create an impermeable barrier which can then be augmented with specific porous materials to create a filtration system for targeted molecules 

Diagnostics
Polymeric membranes are integral to many techniques in the molecular diagnostics field.

Nanoreactors -- Delivery of Actives

Molecules such as membrane proteins incorporated into the walls of the copolymer vesicles creating a delivery vehicle. So-called 'nanoreactors' can be used for a prodrug therapy or as amplification schemes for in-vitro diagnostics. Due to their small size avoid the bodies natural defenses until in the target area where they open, releasing the active ingredient.
