NanoSensors has announced that it has received 85 units of the disposable housing unit and 10 units of the data acquisition unit from its third-party manufacturers. These units will be used for independent third-party testing.
As previously announced, the Company's biosensor consists of two core functional parts: a disposable housing unit (Razor Blade) in which the actual sensor device is mounted and a separate, external data acquisition unit (Razor). Based on this design, the disposable housing unit which contains the sensor transmits signals across electrical leads to the data acquisition unit, which accepts the output signal from the disposable housing unit and converts the signal to the appropriate format to display the results.
The Company is in the process of functionalizing the sensors that will be placed inside the disposable housing units. Once the sensors are functionalized the Company will be able to finalize its testing program and initiate independent third party testing of the biosensor product. The Company intends to find a cross-section of potential customers that will test the product and provide feedback on the functionality.
The Company has also initiated the task of evaluating the process parameters for the detection of salmonella using its licensed technology. Consistent with its marketing plan, the Company is working on a development plan for modifying its biosensor to detect e.coli in order to introduce a biosensor device for the detection of salmonella in food and water, the need for which was recently evidenced by the outbreak of salmonella in recent news.
"We are extremely satisfied with the production of our first biosensor prototypes for use in third party testing," stated Dr. Ted Wong, the Company's Chief Executive Officer. "We are eager to now focus on the commencement of a test program to assist us in completing product development and effectively introducing it into the marketplace."
