OXFORD HIGHQ

Oxford HighQ is a spin out from the University of Oxford’s Departments of Materials and Chemistry, developing next-generation chemical and nanoparticle sensors.

Our core technology of optical microcavities provides a fundamental enhancement of signal strength that will offer a step change in sensing across a wide range of applications and markets.

We have developed a nanoparticle analyser that solves one of the key hurdles in nanomedicine development, allowing accurate, real-time measurement of drug load distributions and unloading profiles, This product will be launched in mid 2021.
