Zyvex Announces New Life Sciences Nanomanipulator System - New Technology

Zyvex Corporation today announced its Nanomanipulation System for Life Science research and development applications. The L100 Nanomanipulator System, the latest member of Zyvex's NanoWorks product line, signifies Zyvex's entry into the Life Sciences arena.

"With the growing interest in characterizing biological materials and phenomena at the nanoscale level, the L100 Nanomanipulation System provides an integral tool for the life science researcher involved in nanocharacterization," said Zyvex President Thomas A. Cellucci, Ph.D., MBA. "Zyvex's new product development continues to demonstrate our leadership position in developing real-world, practical nanotechnology solutions."

The joystick-controlled Nanomanipulator can have up to four individually- controllable nanopositioners each capable of incorporating a variety of NanoEffector tools. Zyvex's NanoEffector tools, which include microgrippers and probes, can be used with the L100 Nanomanipulation System to perform precise mechanical and electrical characterization, and multiple nanocharacterization techniques.

Mechanical testing applications include force probing of individual cells and tensile/bend-testing of microscale biomaterials ranging from individual collagen fibers - to engineered tissue constructs. Electrical testing applications include electronic property measurements of biopolymer strands and impedance testing of tissue. The tool enables a variety of measurements and experiments under different optical microscopes. Application notes are available that show the power and versatility of the L100 Nanomanipulation System. The first application note, titled "Manipulation of Collagen fibers for mechanical characterization," is available on the Zyvex web site. Other application notes show the power and versatility of Zyvex's NanoWorks product line, NanoEffector tools, and Nanomaterials products and capabilities.

The L100 Nanomanipulator System is an integral part of Zyvex's mission of providing flexible, automated manufacturing at ever decreasing size scales.
