WAINVAM-E’s offer
to the pharmaceutical industry

WAINVAM-E offers quantum metrology solutions, using NV center nano-diamonds.

Nano-diamonds have unique properties that make them very valuable to the pharmaceutical industry.

They can be used as detection and diagnostic tools, as drug carriers, to improve the functioning of existing active molecules, and to develop new therapeutic molecules.

We also offer to perform for you tests with classical methods such as ORAC, FRAP, DPPH to measure the antioxidant efficacy of your ingredients and your formulas

Nano-diamonds for the pharmaceutical industry

The technology developed by WAINVAM-E is based on the quantum properties of the NV centers of diamond. This structure gives it fluorescence properties that depend, among other things, on the surrounding magnetic field.

The nano-diamonds can be used both as a magnetometer and as a fluorescent marker.

WAINVAM-E also uses the unique properties of nano-diamonds (biocompatibility, stable structure, functionalisable surface) to make them very attractive from a pharmaceutical point of view not only as detection and diagnostic tools but also as drug carriers.

Nano-diamonds can be coated with molecules that will recognise and bind to targets such as pathogens, immune system cells and cancer cells.
This process, called functionalisation, allows for example to screen and identify cancers or other pathological conditions such as neurodegenerative diseases.

By adding an active drug molecule to this coating, nano-diamonds are then able to deliver drugs directly to target tissues and cells, increasing the effectiveness of the active molecule and reducing off-target toxic effects.

It is also possible to design the coating so that the active molecule is delivered in a specific environment with particular conditions, allowing for more precise therapeutic targeting. For example, when the pH is no longer physiological in certain pathologies.

Our products and services
