Technology

 

Our technology sits at the nexus of nanoengineering, materials science, and biochemistry. 

Current advances in wearable sensor technology rely heavily on synthetic polymers. These are often relatively thick, impermeable, difficult to achieve conformal fit, and lack biocompatibility. Moreover, these materials are generally hydrophobic, resulting in manufacturing processes that are more complex, expensive, and environmentally polluting than need be. 

At Agave, we’re transforming next-generation sensors via innovative materials and fabrication methods. Our materials are organically-derived, biodegradable, biocompatible, and exhibit remarkable properties at the nano scale. Our additive manufacturing processes require significantly fewer inputs and waste less raw material, allowing us to build truly green devices that improve health outcomes for people and planet.
