Ziylo is a supramolecular chemistry company with expertise in developing technology for biosensors. We are producing some of the world’s first molecularly engineered sugar binding receptors that can be precisely adapted to produce market-leading continuous glucose sensors for a variety of applications.
Our intellectual property covers a family of synthetic sugar-binding molecules that are totally unique, very robust and can outperform biological (enzyme-based) systems in specifically detecting glucose in complicated biological media. The superb specificity and robustness of our technology promises to address the limitations intrinsic to the current state-of-the-art.
We have demonstrated proof of concept with a fiber-optic prototype sensor able to detect changing glucose levels in water. We are now focused on developing precise, inexpensive and durable continuous glucose monitoring technology that is licensable for sensor use in bioreactors and in blood
