BioPact is a nano-technology development company based in Cambridge, MA. BioPact’s Medical Grade Molecular Rebar (MGMR®) is a unique composition of matter derived from carbon nanotubes. MGMR® is made up of discrete (individualized), medical grade, open-ended, length controlled, and surface functionalized carbon nanotubes. The unique physical and chemical properties of these tubes overcome the limitations of traditional dirty, tangled carbon nanotube bundles. Drugs or other bioactive substances may be loaded into the hollow tubes, bonded to the exterior of the tube, and/or capped at the end of each tube. The tubes themselves may also be sensitized by NIR and MRI. BioPact is focused on developing and partnering MGMR® for use in drug delivery, orthotics, regenerative medicine, devices, diagnostics, bio-sensors, material optimization and a number of other medical applications addressing substantial unmet needs in patient care.

By utilizing MGMR, drug developers can resolve challenges such as controlled-release, targeted delivery, transdermal delivery, toxicity, instability and passing through the blood-brain barrier. Developers can improve devices and their components by taking advantage of MGMR’s ability to be a scaffold, put into arrays, and controlled in other unique ways. Diagnostic developers can use the unique qualities of the tubes to act as carriers, targeters and signalers, as well as to sensitize the tube itself for special purpose diagnostics.
