NanoSensors,Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: NNSR.OB), a nanotechnology development company
that is developing a biosensor to detect e.coli and salmonella announced
today 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.
NanoSensors Receives Test Units of Its Biosensor to Detect E.coli
SANTA CLARA, CA | Posted on March 12th, 2007
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 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
"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."
Pictures of the prototypes can be found at http://www.nanosensorsinc.net .
