Company history

Abalonyx was founded in 2005 by Dr. Rune Wendelbo in collaboration with Oslo Innovation Center AS. Several major projects funded by the Reseach Council of Norway, Innovation Norway and EU have been completed, resulting in a portfolio of technologies and products now ready for commercialization.


Our technology basis is both in materials and methods. On the materials side we are specialized in the synthesis and manipulation of graphene oxide and graphene oxide derivatives. On the methods side we use and develop automated, high throughput methods based on the standard well-plate format. The aim is full automation of all experiments and production, in order to secure quality and reproducibility.

Where we are located

Abalonyx offices and labs are conveniently located at SINTEF in Oslo, in close proximity to the University of Oslo and the Oslo Innovation Center. Production facility located in Hurum, Norway.
