BioForce Nanosciences has announced that it exceeded its 2006 goal for shipping up to 20 of its cutting-edge Nano eNabler molecular printers to prestigious institutions across the globe. BioForce exceeded its goal by two units by year end. These pilot placements of the Company's patented Nano eNabler device at centers of research excellence, allow the entrepreneurial researchers at those centers to act as "early adopters" of BioForce's practical tools and technologies.
"With the shipment of these 22 Nano eNabler molecular printers," says BioForce Product Manager Michael Lynch, "BioForce is now essentially partnering with an impressive group of innovators working in the micro and nanotechnology fields. Several groups have already expressed a desire to seek funds to convert their placement into a purchase."
Kerry Frey, BioForce's chief operating officer, says, "BioForce Nanosciences is positioned between two very exciting markets-nanotechnology and the life sciences. We strongly believe our Nano eNabler system will change how research is conducted in laboratories across the world." He explains that the ease of use and practicality provided by the Nano eNabler system, establish a path from laboratory to industry.
Institutions where recent placements have taken place:
- University of California, Cal-it2, Irvine, CA
- Cornell University, NanoBioTechnology Center, Ithaca, NY
- ETH Zurich, Zurich, Switzerland
- Georgia Institute of Technology, Microelectronics Research Center, Atlanta, GA
- Stanford University, James H. Clark Center, Stanford, CA
