The "carbon-on-metal" technology would address limitations to gold as a material for protein array development, making such arrays less susceptible to non-specific binding, less prone to denaturing proteins, and more reusable.

CEO Tim Burland said the company hopes to be able to make its carbon-coated-on-gold surfaces available by the end of the year, and to expand its business into applied markets, such as bioengineering and environmental and agricultural testing.

The Madison, Wis.-based company’s imaging systems analyze protein arrays made on gold biochips, which enables label-free analysis that may “accurately reflect how proteins function in real life,” the company said.
