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.
Here we have news and (soon) maker instructions for the products we are creating. Feel free to download what you want. Have fun making stuff!
The Mo'zonator™ Mini prototype is complete and our first test is here.
Summary: In this experiment we compared the performance of a powerful UV/Ozone system (the Surfinator™, shown in previous studies to be over two times as effective as competing and significantly more costly instruments using UV light for ozone production) to the new Mo'zonator ™ Mini corona discharge (CD) ozone generator. The Mo'zonator™ series of ozone generators are so powerful that we created this Mini version that is far smaller and cheaper than even our economical Surfinator™ not to mention the underperforming, obsolete, and overpriced competitor's instrument.
Conclusions: This study shows that the Mo'zonator™ corona discharge (CD) approach is vastly superior to UV-based systems for creating ozone. Further, the CD method is safer (no mercury, no harmful radiation) and far less expensive than UV systems. Finally, in keeping with the mission of Creodyne to produce better products for less money and distribute them as widely as possible, the full plans for the Mo'zonator Mini and additional Mo'zonator designs will be posted so DYI enthusiasts can build and modify them to taste. We will, of course, be happy to build one for you and sell it at a reasonable cost (guaranteed to be far less than you would pay for a "scientific" ozone production system).
Eric Henderson, Ph.D.
Eric is a 30-year veteran of academia and the biotechnology industry (CV here). He created Creodyne to circumvent the pitfalls of conventional approaches to creating products that benefit humanity. The underlying operating principle is to improve the quality of life and create a sustainable revenue engine, putting profits back to work and eschewing the conventional metric of success of accumulation of wealth.
Eric grew up in Los Angeles, was pin-balled from a trajectory as a mechanic or factory worker into a career in science. He lived in Berkeley, CA for three years before moving to the Midwest. Family, music, writing, exercise, ideas, inventing, progress, compassion and perpetual existential meanderings constitute some of the primary fractals of his life. He wants to hear about your ideas and plans for progressive R&D and business activities that will make the world a better place for all life forms. He is also always looking for funk/R&B/groove/alternative musicians of high caliber for goal oriented projects : ).

For guitarists who want that "perfect tone" for any situation we offer a simple solution. Simply outfit all your favorite pickups with the SwitchUp™ system (build it yourself with free plans to be posted here soon) and you can swap pickups whenever you want!
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.
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.
With the retirement of our revered UV/Ozone surface decontamination device - The Surfinator™ Pro - comes the birth of a technological leap forward. Welcome The Coronator™ surface conditioner system. This system uses an advanced and superior method 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: Conventional ozone generators, including one sold by a company I started in 1994 (before Creodyne), and Creodyne's Surfinator™ Pro 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 will 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 are designing a new, cost-effective instrument to accomplish what the Surfinator™ Pro (Creodyne's UV system) and the Ozonator™ (our original patent) can do, but faster, cheaper (for you) and funner! Stay tuned for updates on the Coronator™.
Prototype R&D ongoing - commercially available ~Q4 2016.
The inventor and developer of several commercial UV/Ozone surface decontamination systems Creodyne now produces the Surfiantor™ Mini. Using a miniaturized UV/Ozone source this device is, like all Creodyne projects, designed to let the user build a simple but highly effective UV/Ozone systemfor cleaning and decontaminating AFM probes, silicon chips, PDMS devices and other small and fragile surfaces. Of course the 185nm UV and ozone can also be used to oxidixze surfaces, catalyze photo and chemical reactions and even harden UV sensitive adhesives. This project will be complete and available by Q4 2016 at a cost of under $500 and possibly very much under as we focus on low cost and high value while eschewing profit maximization.
