Nanotechnology: design and control at the nanoscale

The mechanism by which the AC5 Surgical Hemostatic Device™ and other Arch planned pipeline products achieves its desired effect resides in the domain of the nanoscale. The design and control of AC5TM provides the desired high ordered nanostructures.


Arch techniques use organic chemistry instead of expensive biotech or plasma-based methods

Simpler manufacturing methods are important

Important determinants of product value are its manufacturing methods, type and source of ingredients, and burden of waste byproduct elimination. Industry is keenly aware of the downside of technologies that rely on expensive biotechnology techniques and facilities for manufacture, onerous and expensive programs to eliminate complex materials, or ingredients that are sourced from the complicated process of human or other animal plasma separation.

Such products typically are expensive, infrastructure intensive, burdensome, and at greater risk for failing regulatory oversight versus simpler options. Arch’s manufacturing methods avoid these complexities.

Arch’s planned products will be synthesized of naturally occurring ingredients that are not sourced from humans or other animals. These ingredients, which are the building blocks of the human body, are categorized as GRAS (Generally Recognized as Safe), convey a lower risk of adverse effects, and exist in their natural state in humans.
