  • Protein conjugation to nanoparticles, enzymes, and/or other molecules

  • DNA conjugations to nanoparticles and/or proteins

  • Nanoparticle conjugations to various molecules

  • Nanoparticle and biomolecule depositions on solid surfaces (i.e., glass slides, gold surfaces, chromatographic strips, etc)

  • Evaluations of biocompatibility of nanomaterials and other research materials

  • New assay development and evaluation using absorbance, fluorescence, and electrochemical transduction methods

  • Testing of new products

  • Consulting services


ZYSTEIN benefits greatly from its proximity and access to World Class nano facilities at the University of Arkansas (UofA) and the FDA’s Technology Development Center at NCTR (National Center for Toxicological Research). The World Class nano microscopy resources at the UofA alone (https://microscopy.uark.edu/instruments/)  ensure the quality of nanoparticles that we supply to our customers. 

ZYSTEIN also offers and performs the following services:

  • new assay development

  • development of nanoparticles for theranostics applications,

We offer these services with the highest research quality for cutting edge technology.  Our internal R&D at ZYSTEIN, LLC develops new technologies with partners and collaborators worldwide.  


  • To offer high quality research services in biotechnology and nanotechnology that will support clients in bringing  new technologies to market rapidly.

  • To accomplish internal new technology R&D and product developments involving biotechnology and nanotechnology.

  • To develop products that make use only of plant oils, plant extracts, together with biodegradable biocompatible nanoparticles for health and life sciences applications. 


The Company

Zystein, LLC is located in Fayetteville, Arkansas. It was founded in February, 2013. The company offers:

1) Research services

2) Internal R & D

3) Small Scale Product manufacturing up to 60,000 units a month.

We are the brain child of Dr. Zoraida P. Aguilar and her experiences.  Dr. Aguilar’s research focus has evolved from water pollution to mutation to waste management, then into microfabrication, microfluidics, and biological assay developments while earning her PhD.   Soon after earning her PhD, she was focused upon Nano-bio-sensors, nanocarriers and nano capsules for vaccine/drug delivery, medical devices, instrument miniaturization, and nanoscale materials.  Dr. Aguilar’s recent life sciences research has focused upon nanomaterials and electrochemistry utilization in medicine, in vitro diagnostics, food, and environmental segments to develop new drug/vaccine delivery, in vitro diagnostics, skin care formulations, environmental monitoring, pet care, home care, water purification-disinfection-monitoring, solar energy, and the construction industry.  She has launched products consisting of plant-based nanomaterials enhanced dermal nutrition skin care products, nanomaterials detection kits, and health care products.

Dr. Aguilar has co-authored nine (9) patents and patent applications for use in numerous market segments.  This natural evolution utilized the areas of knowledge that she acquired from her BS Chemistry, MS Biochemistry, and PhD in Analytical Chemistry plus two years of Molecular Biology and genetic engineering.  Her rare blend of training created unique problem solving that she utilized as she directed and conducted R&D using innovative technology.  She has been very skilled in developing technology with an eye toward commercialization and a benefit to humanity.   Her unique development of new technologies led to federal funded research that acquired more than $6.5 M dollars during the last 12 years after earning her PhD.
