Poster Presentation at 2019 Defense TechConnect Innovation Summit

Entering its sixth year, the annual Defense TechConnect (DTC) Summit, co-located with the Fall SBIR/STTR Innovation Summit, brings together defense, private industry, federal agency, and academic leadership to accelerate state-of-the-art technology solutions for the warfighter and national security.

MIP Diagnostics will be presenting "Nano Molecularly Imprinted Polymers for Diagnostic Applications"

MIP Diagnostics Limited produces novel molecularly imprinted polymers at the nano scale - nano-MIPs. Our proprietary technology leads to binding molecules with affinities and specificities comparable to class-leading antibodies in a matter of weeks, without the need for animals or immunisation. nano-MIPs are robust: they can be autoclaved and still retain their functionality, and they have survived upper stratosphere radiation conditions where traditional binding molecules would typically be degraded. We have produced them to a number of targets, including (but not limited to) vancomycin, cocaine, fuel contaminants, cardiac Troponin I and bacteriophages. They have been successfully incorporated into a number of sensor platforms including one for the pesticide methyl-parathion in milk and drinking water. The technology can also be used to purify and extract molecules, such as salbutamol and melamine.
