Executive Summary

Oxonica Ltd., which spun out of Oxford University in 1999, is commercializing nanoparticle phosphors as biolabels for genomic and proteomic applications in drug discovery and diagnostics. The company's platform also includes the application of its phosphor based technology platform in sunscreens, fuel catalysts, and flat-panel displays. These phosphors, which are metal-oxides ranging from 2nm to 100nm in size, emit very sharp, unique "signatures" of light when exposed to a stimulus such as UV light.
