Years of research and dedication
in order to solve a big problem.
CarboNix LLC is an early stage company founded by Allan M. Quick and Dr. Michael A. Matthews. Our technology is based on research conducted by Professor Matthews in the Department of Chemical Engineering and licensed from the University of South Carolina. CEO Allan M Quick was formerly Senior Vice President with NCR Corporation and is in a second career as an entrepreneur CTO Mike Matthews has nearly 30 years of experience in the science and technology applications of carbon dioxide.
With funding from the National Institutes of Health, CarboNix LLC is applying its patented technology for allergy abatement in the home. Allergies and allergy-induced asthma are major health problems, affecting more than 50 million Americans.
Our technology broadly addresses to the use of compressed carbon dioxide for deactivating and removing allergenic proteins in textiles, including carpets, bedding, and upholstered furniture. One particular application is to remove dust-borne hazards that trigger asthma. The CarboNix approach is clean and dry, and does not use harsh chemicals. It removes a broad spectrum of indoor asthma triggers. Our research also shows that dust mites, which are a major source of asthma triggers, can be effectively eradicated.
