Business activities

Two innovative spin-off companies operating in the field of medical diagnostics - Curiosity Diagnostics and Scope Fluidics - have been created from the work conducted by the Institute. The latter has made a successful debut on the NewConnect market. On the basis of the works carried out in the Institute, other companies were established, the full list of which is presented in the table below.

Scope Fluidics was founded in 2010 as the first spin-off from the Institute of Physical Chemistry, Polish Academy of Sciences (IPC PAS), with the aim to commercialize microfluidic technologies developed at the Institute. Already in 2010 the company focused on medical diagnostics. The company cooperates with the academia and integrates the points of view of medicine and business to develop innovative solutions with a high market potential. Scope Fluidics Group hires a varied and interdisciplinary team of specialists.

Fluence Sp. z o.o. was founded in 2016 to commercialize a cutting-edge all-fibre femtosecond technology. We found a way to make femtosecond lasers extremely environmentally stable and immune to shock. We are devoted to fill-in the long-standing market gap of truly service-free femtosecond lasers for science for industry, science and medicine.

We provide cutting-edge SERS substrates made for fast and accurate analysis for a wide range of analytical sciences such as pharmacy, forensic laboratories, border guard laboratories, medicine and many others. Our innovative technology enhances the sensitivity of widely known Raman spectroscopy, multiple times, due to its hi-tech roughened surface of silver or silver-gold nanoparticles.

SILIQUAN products are unique due to their internal structure – our fluorescent nanoobjects are composed of small fluorescent cores, surrounded by a non-fluorescent silica shells with gradually differentiated thickness. This provides our customers with a series of nanoobjects having different physical diameters, yet constant fluorescent core size. Maintenance of the cores diameter size guarantees the utility of such nanoobjects in advanced microscopic techniques, such as fluorescence correlation spectroscopy.

SILIQUAN offers nanometer sized probes, having a selection of different surface coatings. We specialize in the production of both, fluorescent and non-fluorescent, silicone materials, offered in a wide range of sizes and forms (aqueous, non-aqueous solutions, solid state) to best suit the needs of our clients.
