Nanomix Announces Award of $500K National Science Foundation Phase IIB Grant

EMERYVILLE, CA | Posted on February 21st, 2007

The grant award will be used to continue the development and commercialization of Nanomix' Sensation™ nanoelectronic detection platform, through partnership with academia and industry. The platform is the basis for detection applications in the biomolecule, respiratory, and agricultural fields. NSF awards are earned through a peer-reviewed competition, with innovation, educational value and potential economic benefits as criteria.

David Macdonald, Nanomix CEO, said, "We are honored to receive another grant from the National Science Foundation. It further validates the value of our technology and will enable additional progress toward our commercialization goals."

Principal Investigator Dr. Jean-Christophe Gabriel added, "Further development of our nanotube based platform will support our commercialization efforts for multiple applications, all of which offer the critical advantages that we bring to the field of detection: high performance with cost-effective, scalable manufacturing, provided in a small form factor. Random network carbon nanotube field-effect transistors have excellent operating characteristics. The market potential is impressive."
