OUR FOCUS

We develop dyes through corporate partnerships for life science applications

Bacteriochlorins Synthetic bacteriochlorins share a similar core porphyrin ring structure as bacteriochlorophyll. They typically have a large ultra-violet absorption band with near-infrared emissions between 700nm-900nm. They offer emissions that are 2X-4X narrower than current dyes.
Chlorins Synthetic chlorins share a similar porphyrin ring structure as plant chlorophyll. They typically have a large violet absorption band and have emissions between 600nm-750nm. They offer emissions that are 2X-4X narrower than current dyes.
Multiplexing The ultra-narrow emission spectra of chlorins and bacteriochlorins means that we can potentially replace 1 conventional dye with 2-3 NIRvana dyes. For example, incorporating NIRvana dyes into a flow cytometry panel can enable 10+ colors in UV and/or violet laser channels.
Tuning Dyes Wavelengths Our team has unparalleled capabilities to tune our dyes’ properties. This stems from our unique understanding of how to leverage a vast library of compounds and an ability to modify designs to dial-in the right characteristics.
Conjugation Our team is highly experienced in optimizing the attachment of our dyes onto both biological and non-biological materials.
Synthesis Our team is highly experienced in designing and making the right chlorin and bacteriochlorin to meet your application’s excitation and emission spectral and biological needs.
Characterization Our team uses a combination of HPLC, mass spectrometry, NMR and flourometry to validate the structure and optical properties of each dye.
Scale-Up Our team and supply chain is highly experienced in scaling-up hydrophobic and hydrophilic dyes to meet our commercial partner’s bulk dye shipment needs.
