Creodyne is a Technology Development Incubator focused primarily on the biotechnology and nanotechnology industry sectors. Our highly flexible business model is to spawn new companies, joint ventures, or other partnerships individually funded and focused on the commercialization of each of the available technologies. Interested parties are invited to contact us here.
As counterintuitive and politically incorrect as it seems, it's not about money.
It's about creative problem solving and rapid solution deployment.
Any money we make goes back to work helping others.
We believe that it is that simple.

A unique self-assembling, economical, biocompatible, field-deployable, DNA-based nanotechnology for detection and analysis of molecular interactions.
OPTIMuS™ (patent pending) is a self-assembling nanodevice for detecting and characterizing molecular interactions. It contains moving parts that respond to molecular forces and a photonic reporter system to allow a field-deployed user to identify the presence or absence of one or more molecular signals (e.g., remote detection of pathogen genomes). At operating concentrations there are about 40 billion OPTIMI in a drop of fluid. Since the nanodevice is made out of DNA it is biocompatible, environmentally robust, and phenominally economical. Creodyne envisions a cell phone based detection and analysis ap with instant global telecommunication of the results. Creodyne owns the rights to this technology and is actively seeking funding and partners to further develop this patent pending biosensor and analysis platform.
Vision: A biosinpired electricity generation technology with the aesthetics of a botanical wonderland.
This project, recenlty reported in the journal PLOS ONE, began several years ago based on the observation that leaves on trees have evolved to move in a cyclical pattern as they spill (rather than catch) wind. If it were possible to harvest the kinetic energy of leaves in wind and convert it to electricity the output would be sufficient to power many "off grid" functions (charge batteries, produce light, etc.). However, challenges remain in the process of efficient conversion, our work showing that highly publicized piezoelectric systems will not work due to fundamental limitations of the piezoelectric principle. However, alternative technological and visionary bioinspired synergy will lead to success of this project and, markets permitting provide a new avenue for localized, pollution-free and aesthetically pleasing sustainable energy production.
This project was supported by an SBIR Phase I grant to Creodyne, llc and led by Dr. Michael McCloskey with collaboration from Drss. Curtis Mosher Eric Henderson.
With the retirement of our revered UV/Ozone surface decontamination device - The Surfinator™ Pro - comes the birth of a technological leap forward. Welcome the Mo'Zonator™ series of surface conditioner systems. Mo'zonators use an advanced and superior method for producing ozone for rapid removal of organic debris from fragile surface (e.g., AFM probes, silicon chips, delicate instruments). The cost of this improved technology? A reduction in price (are the competitor's ears burning yet : )
Back Story: Old school ozone generators (including one sold by a company founded in 1994 by Creodyne's founder) use ultraviolet light at 185 nm to create ozone. This is a great way to produce an ozone rich atmosphere for reacting with surfaces, especially fragile ones, to oxidize them and remove organic debris (e.g., oils, DNA, proteins). Ironically, when we were initially developing methods for surface decontamination we invented the Ozonator™, a plasma-based technique that worked well but was more dangerous and harder to control than UV light. However, as with all technologies, new methods for producing ozone, akin to our patented technique, have emerged that require much lower voltages and are extremely adaptable to a variety of form factors. Our focus is on small surfaces (atomic force microscopy probes, silicon chips, glass slides) so we have created a new, cost-effective instrument to accomplish what the Surfinator™ Pro (Creodyne's former UV/ozone system) and the Ozonator™ (our original patent) can do, but faster, cheaper, and better! Buy one here for $400. The Mo'zonator is about five times cheaper, and twice as powerful as the nearest competitor's toxic (mercury) and dangerous (short wave UV) system.
3D Printed Personal Molecular Printer
Creodyne's PMP™ (Personal Molecular Printer) is a laboratory instrument that prints molecules onto biochips with ultramicroscale resolution. The device is manufactured using 3D printed parts, consumer components, and hobbyist elements as well, all of which are in the public domain. The cost of this instrument is less than 10% of the cost of a commercial device and anyone can make one using the parts list to be posted here shortly.
