The Department of Biochemical Engineering at the University of Washington
in Seattle, under the direction of Professor Buddy Ratner, conducted
a protein adsorption study. The objective of the study was to evaluate
IgG protein adsorption on SiO2 Medical Products’ coated polymer
containers and compare those results to an ordinary uncoated polymer
container. In this case, the containers...
SiO2 Materials Science is a privately-owned U.S. advanced materials science corporation, involved in introducing breakthrough disruptive technology. While SiO2 was established in 2010, much of the core team has been working together since the 1950’s. The company is currently located in Auburn, Alabama close to Atlanta, Georgia and is in the process of developing a new facility located near Basel, Switzerland to manufacture the same six-sigma plus quality in all of its facilities. The company has deep partnerships with leading professors in the leading research universities such as University of California, University of Chicago, MIT, and CalTech.
