Seeking Director level in early stage drug discovery chemistry labs involved in proteomics or crystallography... they should be interested in reducing test times and saving money.

About My Business:


Norton Scientific Inc (NSI) is a young high tech company based on many years of experience. We were founded in April 2010. Our CTO is Dr Roger White and our CEO is Bryan C Webb, P. Eng. Based in the Niagara Region of Canada, Norton has been established to take the knowledge and experience of the founders dating back 20+ years in the analysis of complex macromolecular & nano-particulate materials to design innovative measurement tools for use in modern research facilities. Rather than develop high end, multi-purpose analytical instrumentation requiring specialist facilities and personnel to operate them, Norton plans to market simple-to-use tools that can be used by technicians for specific applications at the lab bench, thus accelerating the research process by reducing work-flow bottlenecks & allowing formulation chemists to undertake quick “what if” experiments at minimal cost. By successfully integrating innovations in guided wave laser optics, microfluidic separation and robust data analysis software designed around pre-defined user functionality, researchers at Norton Scientific plan to make the measurement of complex macromolecules and nano-particles as routine as measuring solution pH. In the longer term, innovations in multi-variate data analysis algorithms will enable such technology to become a core part of process control systems for applications in nanotechnology & environmental monitoring. The initial target markets for Norton are the important biochemical applications of protein aggregate screening and the kinetics of protein-protein interactions. Future developments will broaden this base to include applications in biopharmaceutical research, drug delivery, wound healing, advanced materials, food safety, brewing & viticulture, bio-materials and in-water pollution monitoring. PAM™ − Protein Aggregation Monitor If you want to save lab time and reduce the workload on your HPLC or MassSpec, this is the tool for you. The PAM permits a researcher to rapidly pre-screen samples right at the lab bench, reducing the numbers sent for costly and time consuming testing by the central analytical facility. Turnaround can be reduced from weeks to hours, saving valuable research dollars and pushing new therapies up the product pipeline faster. Simply pick-up 2μl of sample and measure for 1 second − right there in the micro cuvette with the press a button; for an aggregation measurement in seconds! The proven laser-based light scattering quickly gets the raw data while the smart software kicks out outliers and provides the solid data for your CFR 21 Part II system needs; the way your company works with its procedures and established protocols. The PAM provides the following benefits to you and your organization: - Reduced operating costs using a technician in lieu of analysts who can now concentrate on analysis & interpretation needs. - Reduced footprint minimizes the use of your valuable & limited lab bench space. - Reduced test sample preparation costs by only using a small 2μl sample size. - No florescence tagging of your sample; it can be collected & reused. - Uses 0.0μl as the sample stays secure in the micro cuvette for recovery or further use. - No cross contamination issues as a new micro cuvette is used every time - Shortened test turn around times (by up to 90%) by using it where samples are prepared and processed. - Reduced capital costs for tight budgets. - No internal PC to concern your IT group. Best of all, there’s no need to worry about either losing valuable samples or recovering them for additional testing since it sits in the pipette tip throughout, ready to be dispensed for the next analysis or returned to storage. True lossless sampling!
