Nanotechnology products

The Porto Conte Ricerche technology platform supports activities for the preparation of nanostructured systems for various applications, including the study of biocompatible and biodegradable nanomaterials for medical use and the development of nanosystems functionalised to direct bioactive molecules and diagnostic probes towards specific biological targets.

These activities are oriented towards several areas of nanomedicine (therapy, immunoprophylaxis, diagnostics and nano-toxicology) and other areas of application (i.e. nanopackaging) through closely integrated operational activities involving the NMR Imaging, Proteomics, Packaging and Shelf Life laboratories. Particular attention is paid to the creation and potential application of inorganic nanoparticle systems for use in the diagnosis of tumours.

Porto Conte Ricerche also supports and collaborates with the research conducted in the Nanomedicine laboratory of the University of Sassari. The laboratory has established itself in the technology park with the aim of designing and developing innovative nanoprototypes with programmable features, capable of “smart” interaction at a subcellular and/or molecular level for the release of chemopreventive and/or chemotherapeutic agents (or to carry out diagnostic or theranostic activities) for the purpose of treating various types of cancers and other diseases.

In general, the activities conducted at Porto Conte Ricerche in the field of nanobiotechnology are mainly directed towards the development of new nanodevices for use in biomedicine, with major focus on the creation of systems capable of recognising specifically targeted diseased cells, in order to increase the therapeutic efficacy and bioavailability of the active ingredients they carry, or to optimise their characteristics as diagnostic probes.
