NANOIDENT OFAB Production Process Meets Rigorous Quality, Safety and Environmental Framework Requirements

NANOIDENT Achieves ISO 9001:2000 Certification

LINZ, Austria | Posted on April 23rd, 2007

NANOIDENT Technologies AG, the world leader in printed semiconductor-based optoelectronic sensors, today announced achievement of ISO 9001:2000 certification for the NANOIDENT Group of companies, which includes NANOIDENT Technologies AG, NANOIDENT ORGANIC FAB (OFAB) GmbH, NANOIDENT Biometrics GmbH, NANOIDENT Biometrics SAS and BIOIDENT Technologies Inc. The NANOIDENT OFAB, located in Linz, Austria, employs a certified management control system to deliver printed semiconductor-based products for the NANOIDENT Group of companies. By achieving this internationally recognized certification, NANOIDENT demonstrates that it delivers controlled processes, fulfills regulatory, safety and environmental requirements, and ensures continuous improvement for its customers.

"Meeting key environmental, safety and quality control processes were a key consideration as we built the industry's first manufacturing facility for printed semiconductor-based optoelectronic sensors," said Eckehard Bauer, managing director, NANOIDENT ORGANIC FAB. "This facility serves as a model for future plants and with ISO 9001:2000 certification, we illustrate our commitment to delivering quality products and serving customers in our target market segments."

ISO 9000 is a family of standards for quality management systems, which is maintained by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and is administered by accreditation and certification bodies. Some of the requirements for ISO 9001 certification include: procedures that cover all key processes, proper record keeping, facilitating continuous improvement and customer focus. NANOIDENT developed its quality management system in conjunction with the development of its new production facility—NANOIDENT OFAB—and was audited by the independent registrar Quality Austria. The company is one of the first printed semiconductor facilities to achieve this certification, which makes it well suited to deal with a growing list of customers that require ISO 9001:2000 suppliers.

"By achieving ISO 9001 certification, we demonstrate a firm commitment to quality, safety and the environment as part of our ongoing production processes," said Klaus G. Schroeter, CEO, NANOIDENT. "As an ISO 9001:2000 registered company, our OFAB meets the certification and safety expectations required by our customers designing next generation printed semiconductor-based devices."

NANOIDENT's OFAB production facility enables new, innovative solutions in a wide range of markets, including consumer, industrial, life sciences and security, that were previously cost-prohibitive or simply not able to be created due to the physical constraints of silicon. Moreover, expensive masks, wasted material and dangerous acids used for etching are not needed with printed electronics. Toxic materials are not used in the OFAB, making it a green production process.
