Norton Scientific Inc. designs scientific measurement tools. The Company’s first product targets researchers in the field of Proteomics, while also is developing its IP base in mechatronic systems, microfluidics, guided wave optical detection, multi-variate analysis software for real-time process control, and macromolecular and/or nanoparticle separations.
Norton Scientific designs the measurement tools to enable advances in proteomics, nanotechnology and green technology to proceed from idea to production.
In this manner, Norton (NSI) is growing upon the success of its first product targeting researchers in the field of Proteomics, while also developing its IP base in mechatronic systems, microfluidics, guided wave optical detection, multi-variate analysis software for real-time process control, and macromolecular and/or nanoparticle separations.
Proteomics is the branch of genetics that studies the full set of proteins encoded by a genome. The potential of Norton lies in the continued development, introduction and commercialization of measurement systems for use in a wide range of markets from healthcare, biomaterials and green industries to viticulture, including brewing.
This is the Future of Analytical Instruments
By successfully integrating guided wave laser optics, microfluidics and robust data analysis software, researchers at Norton Scientific have invented a proprietary laser-based product that is now being marketed to laboratories and universities around the world.
Targeting proteomics applications including crystallographers, the company is introducing this low-cost analytical system to researchers in biopharmaceutical and healthcare, advanced materials, food and beverage, bio-materials and in-water pollution monitoring.
Norton intends to market simple-to-use products that can be used by technicians, rather than analysts, to be incorporated into any laboratories’ own process control systems. Due to various applications of these materials, “macromolecule” covers the entire range of polymers and biopolymers − including proteins and peptides − that can be analyzed using the intellectual property owned by NSI, such as contained in the revolutionary protein aggregation monitor (PAM).
