UD start-up company prepares to commercialize novel detector for medical, military applications
Date:10/28/2009

PAIR Technologies, a start-up company established by University of Delaware researchers and a former DuPont scientist, is preparing to commercialize a high-precision detector -- a planar array infrared spectrograph -- that can identify biological and chemical agents in solids, liquids, and gases, in quantities as small as an atom, and in less than a second.

The revolutionary technology holds promise in multiple applications, ranging from the early detection of diseases, to monitoring for chemical weapons and environmental pollutants, to enhancing quality-control efforts in manufacturing processes.

John Rabolt, the Karl W. and Renate Ber Professor of Materials Science and Engineering at UD, and his students invented and patented the technology in 2001.

Rabolt and Bruce Chase, who recently retired from DuPont as a research chemist, founded the company in 2005.

Their partners in the company include Scott Jones, professor of accounting and director of the Venture Development Center in UD's Lerner College of Business and Economics, and Dan Frost, who received his master of business administration degree from UD in 2008.

The University of Delaware owns the patents for the technology, which are under exclusive license to PAIR Technologies, and has taken a small equity position in the company.

"PAIR Technologies offers an analytical tool with the potential to contribute significant benefits to society through a wide array of medical, military, environmental, and industrial applications," says David Weir, director of UD's Office of Economic Innovation and Partnerships.

"The company grew out of UD innovation and is a model for how federal, state, and University partners can work together to advance economic development," Weir notes. "These are the kinds of high-tech economic partnerships the University of Delaware wants to develop, and we will be looking more aggressively at opportunities like this in the
