Our commitment to the technology
Each member of the Tetramer Team has a deep desire to see new materials make it into the market and benefit the consumer. A new material that languishes in the lab is a failure. This belief has driven us to this work and gives us great joy in aiding our industrial and government partners.
Our commitment to our people and their growth as scientists, engineers, and entrepreneurs
We provide both the physical and technical infrastructure (the building, the lab space, the hoods, the supplies and the analytical capabilities) and the operational infrastructure (finance, IT, safety, professional development) to allow our team to focus on transitioning technologies from the lab to the market. Tetramer is a place where scientists are themselves their only limitation.
First created by our team in 2008, these are our guiding principles
