Nanotechnology has the potential to revolutionize the way diseases are diagnosed and treated. The most significant use of nanotechnology can be to ensure targeted delivery of life-saving drugs and removal of hostile cells from a patient’s body to improve treatment and reduce damage to other healthy cells. Utah-based Nanoshell Company, a biotechnology solution provider, makes such implementations of nanotechnology-based solutions possible. Nanoshell specializes in the design, manufacturing, characterization, and incorporation of functional nanoparticles into transformational products, including medicine, personal care products, polymers, and textiles.
Scientists at Nanoshell have developed an Intelligent NanoDelivery SystemTM using lessons learned from state-of-the-art advances in pharmaceutical transdermal drug delivery, to produce customizable, nanosized delivery vehicles containing compounds that help in purification of blood. They work by targeted removal of adverse disease-related compounds from a patient’s blood. Nanoshell’s patent-pending high-throughput extracorporeal blood cleaning system with patented FastReactTM technology can be integrated with conventional blood transfusion to simultaneously clean the blood outside a patient’s body during the blood transfusion. The company’s blood cleaning system can effectively reduce the frequency and also the severity of unexpected crisis during regular red blood cell exchange and plasmapheresis, leaving the patient’s blood in much-improved condition.
Nanoshell’s technology can also be used to selectively target and extract cells from the blood that are associated with different diseases such as cancer, as well as toxins, and viruses by using various nanomaterials. This cellular collection system in development, coupled with clinical aphaeresis, can provide therapeutic benefits to cancer patients. The company’s patent-pending technology can process large volumes of patient’s blood and collect targeted metastasized cancer cells from the patient’s blood in just 2-3 hours. This capability can enhance the effectiveness of chemo and radiation therapy and can be used to stop or slow down the spread of cancer cells to other parts of the body. “As opposed to the traditional single-component nanomaterials, Nanoshell utilizes self-assembling, multiple-component nanomaterials to develop new functional nanoparticles, increase patient safety, and reduce healthcare costs,” says Dr. Agnes Ostafin, president of Nanoshell.

The company’s Intelligent NanoDelivery System also enhances the effectiveness and aesthetics of actives in cosmetics and personal care products. Its nanosized delivery vehicles can penetrate into selected depths of the skin or the hair cuticle to deliver beneficial substances that truly support its repair, regeneration, and protection. All of the firm’s formulations are tested by third-party laboratories and by panels of test clients for effectiveness before production. As Nanoshell designs and manufactures its solutions from scratch, all of them can be unique, potentially patent-protectable, and the company also offers intellectual property rights to its clients.
To further elaborate on Nanoshell’s technological capabilities, Agnes recalls developing a personal care product for hyperpigmentation, a condition where excess production of melanin cause brown spots on the skin. To cure this, the company’s team of experts successfully developed a multi-component nanoparticle that is size and surface-engineered to be able to penetrate only into a certain depth and stick to the targeted region of the skin to deliver the formulation’s benefits. This formulation of Nanoshell, tailored for different types of skin, balances the skin tone evenly within a couple weeks.
Nanoshell’s one of a kind technology is also capable of extracting a wide range of biological weapons, chemical agents, and infectious diseases from the blood of exposed soldiers before any major organ damage occurs and also shortens their recovery time. Owing to its unique benefits, Nanoshell’s nanobiotechnology-enabled system for continuous blood purification and cancer therapeutics was awarded the TechConnect Defense Innovation Award in 2018 and is one of The 10 Most Innovative Healthcare Nanotech Companies to Watch by Insightscare. To continue its legacy, the company is currently developing new innovative nanotechnology-based transformative solutions while also enhancing the effectiveness of the existing ones.
