The Company not only closed the year 2021 with increased revenues but also launched a new product segment, BowtieD®. During the first half of 2022, Polymer Factory primarily focused on expanding the team and deepening relationships with customers, while continuing to engage new leads. On the product development side, Polymer Factory progressed with the product launch of Dendritic Nanogel (DNG) in Q4 2022 as a future competitor to liposome carriers and organic/inorganic nanoparticle carriers as well as the expansion of the SpheriCal® calibrant platform.
