Nanotechnology Services in Venom

Venom is a natural source of extremely rich and complex biologically active molecules, with a variety of molecular targets and functions, mainly including proteins and peptides. Both traditional medicine and folklore mention the use of venom to treat various diseases, and research has also scientifically verified the medical application of venom. Nanotechnology currently used for drug development has attracted wide attention in different fields, and of course it is also used in animal-derived venom with potential medicinal value. The use of nanotechnology to develop nano-scale venom molecules makes the venom easier to be absorbed by cells and has better efficacy. Creative Proteomics provides nanoparticle-conjugated venom toxin design services for some potential venoms and toxins, such as snakes, amphibians, scorpions and bees, in order to obtain possible treatment clues for emerging diseases.

Our Nanotechnology Services in Venom

Combining nanotechnology with venom research is a promising aspect. Venom is a valuable biologically active molecular resource, which has shown effective and promising contributions in biomedical research. Combining the potential of these two unique fields will provide better therapeutic molecules for future applications in drug delivery, enhanced stability, reduced toxicity, bioavailability, and targeted drug delivery. Regarding the conjugate of venom bioactive molecules with nanoparticles, these molecules have better therapeutic advantages in many fields of biomedical research. Therefore, in order to assist in the development of the therapeutic potential of venom, Creative Proteomics provides the following venom nanotechnology services.

Service Process

Our service process consists of 3 stages. First, set up a research team specifically responsible for the project, and customize service plans according to customer needs. Start the research process, design and obtain nanoparticles, load the target venom, and test its effectiveness, and finally submit the results to the customer.
