Stream Bio Ltd, a company that develops and manufactures a range of revolutionary bioimaging molecular probes, has won the highly esteemed Institute of Physics Business Start-Up Award. This reward reflects Stream Bio’s novel CPNTM technology and celebrates its entrepreneurship and excellence in innovation.
Based at the Centre for Process Innovation’s (CPI) Sedgefield site, Stream has been recognised for its new generation of innovative molecular probes. Known as Conjugated Nanoparticles (CPN™️s), these highly fluorescent, non-toxic nanoparticles are set to transform the bioimaging market.
The annual Business Start-Up Award is the only recognition in the UK and Ireland that commemorates young companies who have built success on the innovative application of physics and have excellent business growth potential. Stream Bio has been recognised in this category for its successful implementation of physics into its CPNTM technology.
Stream Bio’s CPNsTM, invented in the research labs of King’s College London, represent a new generation of innovative molecular bioimaging probes. These highly fluorescent, non-toxic nanoparticles are set to transform the bioimaging market with their unique brightness, exceptional stability, magnetic capability and suitability to be conjugated with a range of molecules. They currently have applications in diagnostics and therapeutics, and can potentially be used for imaging tumours and fluorescence-guided surgery.
The revolutionary CPNsTM possess unique properties that make them more advantageous for R&D and in-vitro diagnostic applications than traditional dyes and probes. These properties also make it easy to substitute CPNsTM into existing lab protocols. CPNsTM can now be purchased directly from the UK distributor 2BScientific.
CEO of Stream Bio, Andy Chaloner, said: “We are honoured to have won this award from the distinguished Institute of Physics. Our Stream Bio team have worked hard to bring this technology to the market and it is very exciting to have our innovative technology recognised in this way. The exposure that this award brings will drive the technology further and we can’t wait to see what the future will hold.”
