HiQ-Nano is a spin-off company from the Italian Institute of Technology focused on the design, fabrication and characterization of high-quality nanoparticles.
The company exploits its strong scientific expertise in nanofabrication, nanobiotechnology and material science to satisfy the growing demands of nanomaterials from both academic research and industrially - oriented applications.
HiQ-Nano provides highly monodisperse and stable nanoparticles, with low batch-to-batch variability together with accurate characterization of their shape, size distribution, charge, and agglomeration state.
The mission of the company is to guarantee excellence in the production of nanoparticles and related technologies to our clients, allowing researchers and industries to thrive thanks to the exceptional properties of nanomaterials.
HiQ-Nano is here to introduce you in the fascinating experience of nanoworld!
The team is composed of highly skilled PhD scientists with strong and multidisciplinary expertise in nanofabrication, nanobiotechnology and material science.
For a long time they dealt with the problems of obtaining high quality nanoparticles with defined size, shape, surface chemistry and agglomeration state, in order to study and exploit the exciting physicochemical properties of nanomaterials.
During their scientific activity they were able to overcome these technical challenges by developing new synthetic routes and multiple characterization techniques.
For this reason, they are able now to satisfy the growing requests from both academic research and industrially - oriented applications thanks to the long experience in the nanotechnology field testified by publications, patents and international project with academic and industrial partners.
The mission of HiQ-Nano is to provide precisely engineered and highly characterized Nanoparticles. For these reasons, our laboratory is equipped with the state of the art characterization techniques for nanoparticles analysis.
Each batch is extensively characterized by:
- Transmission Electron Microscopy (TEM)
- Dynamic Light Scattering (DLS)
- UV/Visible spectroscopy
- Zeta Potential
- Inductively coupled plasma-optical emission spectroscopy (ICP-OES)
