Unlocking the full therapeutic potential of silver without its detrimental tradeoffs
In 2001, EVŌQ Nano Co-Founder and Chief Scientific Officer William Niedermeyer started a small laboratory to investigate nanoparticles and their properties. Early efforts were frustrated, however, by recurring problems with nanoparticle impurity, uneven size distribution, agglomeration into large clumps, low energy emission, and colloidal instability. Plus, purchasing diverse nanoparticles in bulk to conduct research was incredibly expensive.
Motivated to remedy these limitations, Niedermeyer engineered his own nanofabrication process using modified laser equipment and parts from the previous Star Wars program at Lawrences Livermore National Laboratory. To his amazement, this invention produced nanoparticles unlike any he had studied. They were uniformly sized, surfactant-free, with consistent spherical morphology, and no ion emissions under standard and stressed conditions – properties that represented a significant advancement in nanoscience with the potential to enable new applications.
In 2011, Niedermeyer and his team patented the unique laser-based nanofabrication process and the resulting “Niedermeyer Particle,” EVQ-218 – the first and only non-ionic silver nanoparticle.
Novel Mechanism of Action:
Starting with 3 initial patents, EVŌQ Nano has grown its intellectual portfolio to include 39 issued and 39 pending patents as of 2023.
