Who We Are

Alpha Nanotech Inc. is conveniently located on campus at the University of British Columbia, 30 minutes from Downtown Vancouver and 15 minutes from the Vancouver International Airport (YVR). We are a team of innovation-driven researchers who specialize in manufacturing different types of nanomaterials, such as graphene, carbon nanotubes, nanopowders, and colloidal nanoparticles. We are always ready to supply our University research collaborators or industrial partners with our most advanced version of products and services.



Thanks to the University of British Columbia and the University of Alberta, we are capable of applying the latest technology to our nanomaterials and delivering them to our clients. The University of Alberta is where we and our technology are from, and we constantly strive to achieve the best possible stability and consistency for our provided materials. The University of British Columbia is where we carry out most of the characterizations of our products and ensure our products perfectly meet our clients' needs. Different from most of the large-scale commercial suppliers in the market, we carefully manufacture our materials in our small-scale lab by our researchers to achieve the best possible standard of various research purposes and directly deliver our materials from our scientists to your scientists.
