Home > Press > BioForce Nanosciences Pursues Support for ViriChip(TM) Platform

Abstract:
BioForce Nanosciences, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of BioForce Nanosciences Holdings, Inc.
(OTC Bulletin Board: BFNH), continues their effort to fund development of
the ViriChip(TM) platform, a patented system designed to rapidly and
nondestructively detect and identify whole viruses. Developed by BioForce
and made possible by BioForce's Nano eNabler(TM) molecular printer, the
ViriChip platform can have a major impact in biodefense by creating
ultraminiaturized biodetection devices.

BioForce Nanosciences Pursues Support for ViriChip(TM) Platform

AMES, IA | Posted on April 11th, 2007

BioForce Nanosciences has three major product focus areas: 1)
instrumentation, 2) consumables, and 3) applications. The ViriChip platform
is just one application that BioForce's R&D department has developed using
the Nano eNabler system. The ViriChip technology is sensitive and specific
enough to detect a variety of different pathogens based on the availability
of capture reagents. These could include environmental pathogens
(Noroviruses, coxsackieviruses, etc.), pathogens relevant to biodefense
(smallpox, hemorrhagic fever viruses), animal and plant viruses (foot and
mouth disease, rinderpest, Avian influenza, West Nile), and human disease
agents (Human papillomavirus, herpes viruses, SARS).

BioForce Nanosciences is working to gain government and other support
for the ViriChip platform to assist with biodefense, food safety, and
pandemic diseases. "We want to create opportunities to inform scientific
leaders and decision makers about the importance of nanotechnology in the
life sciences," says Dr. Eric Henderson, BioForce's founder and chief
executive officer. "We believe that the technology embodied in our recently
released Nano eNabler(TM) system has the potential to impact nanotechnology
in the life sciences in a profound way."
