Zyvex splits into four businesses

Zyvex restructured into four businesses: Zyvex Instruments, Zyvex Performance Materials, Zyvex Labs, and Zyvex Asia.

Zyvex Instruments, LLC commercializes nanotechnology to address real-world applications with high growth potential. The company has a proven seven-year track record of providing tools, instrumentation, and applications to the semiconductor and advanced research markets. The company’s flagship product, the Zyvex nProber™, is an 8-positioner nanomanipulator system designed and optimized to electrically probe sub-100 nanometer features on the most advanced semiconductor devices.

Zyvex Performance Materials, LLC, which was announced in April, leverages Zyvex’s long-standing reputation as an industry leader in nanomaterials applications, as well as its existing nanomaterials patents, proprietary methods, core technologies, and revenue-generating customer base. The company’s NanoSolve® products deliver enhanced mechanical and electrical properties in polymers by selectively incorporating the intrinsic properties of carbon nanotubes into composite materials for the Sporting Goods, Aerospace, Defense, and Automotive industries.

Zyvex Labs, LLC is engaged in R&D to develop next generation MEMS-based instruments and to commercialize atomically precise manufacturing.

Zyvex Asia, LLC, which is based in Singapore, will provide R&D support to the Zyvex Group of companies, and commercialize nanotechnology in Asia

Hmmm... I'm sure [email protected] and some of the other distributed computing project could benefit greatly from this advance. By just applying this method you would speed up the folding process incredibly!


"Applying variational principles may allow streamlining of protein folding calculations from trillions of steps to hundreds."

This is amazing. It currently takes sooo much computational power just to fold one protein. Using this, we could have every human protein folded in no time, not to mention custom proteins that we wish to build...

How would this help quicken MNT though? I guess it could help us to understand self assembly, but could it help speed up the arrival of the first nanofactory?

Nice post though.
