GEARJUMP TECHNOLOGIES

Advanced Environmental Controlled Release Solutions

OUR MISSION

From Idea Conceptualization to Product Development & Commercial Realization

GearJump started with the simple idea of developing technology platforms capable of improving the way Active Ingredients are delivered into the environment.

We develop the next generation of advanced controlled release solutions that maximize efficacy and significantly reduce environmental toxicity.

Our vision is to focus on big social impact globally by leveraging breakthrough controlled delivery technologies for the fields of public health, agriculture and animal protection. We strive to introduce disruptive technologies to reduce the burden of vector-borne diseases and agricultural vectors.

Our delivery platforms operate at various scales from nanoparticles to wearable and field use devices for household and agriculture applications and further up to UAV applications.

GearJump Technologies has a problem-centric approach in designing disruptive technologies based on fundamental science:
We first identify the need, and then focus on the fundamental physics and materials science to bring about unique, innovative solutions that address the real core problem.

We research end users' usages, as well as their economies of scale to provide cost-effective, scalable products.

GearJump works with research and industry leaders, and has received support from multiple government agencies, and non-for-profit organizations in the fields of Public Health, Vector Control, AgTech. We are currently running several trials across the globe, including: North America, Latin America, Africa, South East Asia, and Australia.

 

DELIVERY PLATFORMS

GearJump develops controlled release platforms to solve big problems.

We develop controlled release devices for vector control to reduce the spread of mosquito-borne diseases that affect millions of people worldwide, including: malaria, dengue, zika.

We also develop controlled release formulations based on nanoparticles and microparticles for the fields of vector control, personal and animal protection, agriculture, aiming to maximize efficacy and dramatically decrease toxicity.

Our product development is core-fundamental. The process flow starts with the idea conceptualization, design quantification, numerical simulations based on Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD), prototyping, in-vitro and in vivo trials, field trials, product manufacturing and packaging, regulatory process and product registration.

 

UNPARALLELED TECHNOLOGY PLATFORMS

The Possibilities Are Endless

GearJump has developed unique controlled release technology platforms at various scales. 1. Nano/Microparticle-based AIs. 2. RNAi-based AIs. 3. Next Generation of Spatial Repellents based on Spray Delivery. 4. Controlled Release Devices (CRDs) for personal and field use. 5. UAV-based Delivery System.
