Spin-Off Companies founded by CeNS Members

Atom-precise positioners

Attocube Systems constructs novel microscopes for cutting-edge research in the field of nanotechnology. Their tiny motors work at very low temperatures and strong magnetic fields.


Fluorescent nanoprobes

ChromoTek is developing versatile lab tools for proteome research (nanotraps) and fluorescent nanoprobes called Chromobodies® to target and trace antigens in living cells.


Platform technologies for therapeutics

Ethris develops therapeutics based on two proprietary platform technologies which enable therapies for diseases with currently dissatisfying treatment options.


Ultra fast DNA detection

GNA Biosolutions has developed novel technologies for ultra fast DNA diagnostics, based on laser heated gold nanoparticles (Laser PCR and NANOSTOVE).


Observing cells lifelike

Ibidi develops products for the cell analytics for research at universities and for the pharmaceutical industry. This technology allows a realistic simulation of the cell environment under natural conditions, making medical tests comparable with processes in living organisms.


Faster drug analysis

Nanion produces analytic instruments which speed up the current measurement of ion channels in cell membranes. With these instruments the functionality of potential medicines can be tested much faster.


Ultra rapid biomolecule analysis

NanoTemper Technologies develops rapid measuring systems for the optical characterization of biomolecules.


NanoTemper Movie

Ultrasharp probes

Nanotools develops extremely sharp tools for so-called scanning probe microscopes which are essential for nanotechnological research and for the quality control in the chip industry.


Where infrared imaging & spectroscopy meets AFM

Neaspec markets novel optical AFM microscopes for cutting-edge nanoscience. The patented technique allows 1000x times higher spatial resolution in infrared imaging & spectroscopy to determine materials or even conductance and electric fields.
