“Just as energy is the basis of life itself, and ideas the source of innovation, so is innovation the vital spark of all human change, improvement and progress.”
ATERIS Technologies is developing novel diagnostic and medical products that provide an early warning from exposure to environmental and toxic chemicals. Specifically, our focus is on uncovering biomarkers resulting from chemical threats that injure the nervous system. Currently under development is a diagnostic testing system for home use and a monitoring system for clinical use for individuals exposed to potentially harmful amounts of organophosphate insecticides. ATERIS also has expertise in retooling pesticide synthesis processes to develop safer and less toxic pesticides.
Underlying technologies used at ATERIS (combinatorial chemistry, fluorogenic polymers, molecular modeling, synthesis and chemical genetics) enable rapid discovery of new medical products and diagnostic tools that increase throughput and decrease investigative costs.
