Home > Press > BioForce Nanosciences Announces Sale With Louisiana Tech to Deliver Nano Enabler(TM) System to Study Brain Cell Patterns

Abstract:
BioForce Nanosciences, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of BioForce Nanosciences Holdings, Inc.
(BFNH.OB), announced today the March sale of the Nano eNabler(TM) molecular
printer to Louisiana Tech University in Ruston, Louisiana. Louisiana Tech
recently received the third highest rating for nanotechnology education by
Small Times, a respected journal on the nanotech subject.

BioForce Nanosciences Announces Sale With Louisiana Tech to Deliver Nano Enabler(TM) System to Study Brain Cell Patterns

Ames, IA | Posted on April 23rd, 2007

The Louisiana Tech's Department of Biomedical Engineering Professor Dr.
Mark DeCoster will be using the Nano eNabler technology to study the
patterning of cells -- brain and stem -- in culture; also investigators at
the adjoining building where the Institute of Micromanufacturing is housed
will be studying patterning of nanoparticles and nanowires. The Nano
eNabler(TM) system -- BioForce's flagship product -- is a benchtop
molecular printer that places tiny domains of materials onto surfaces with
nanometer spatial precision.

Dr. DeCoster says he became aware of the Nano eNabler molecular printer
from an article and was intrigued with the systems' ability to deposit and
pattern proteins that will retain biological activity. "My initial idea is
to use the Nano eNabler printer to pattern brain cells. We have
successfully begun research in this area using photomasking and
layer-by-layer lift off techniques with proteins and polymers. While the
structural integrity of molecules deposited in this way is maintained,
biological activity -- for example, enzymes -- is most likely diminished or
destroyed." DeCoster is using the Nano eNabler system to remedy this
problem and deposit proteins that retain biological activity to investigate
the influence on brain cell patterning.

BioForce Nanosciences develops and commercializes nanotech tools and
solutions for the life sciences. Founded over a decade ago, BioForce has
been providing products to the atomic force microscopy (AFM) market. In the
past year and a half, BioForce has released the Nano eNabler molecular
printer. BioForce technology is being used in sensor functionalization, ECM
(extracellular matrix) patterning and cell adhesion; printing proteins to
guide neural cell growth; printing signaling proteins to study stem cell
differentiation, multilayer soft lithography, and microfluidics devices;
and printing patterns of ECM proteins on different substrates to study the
effect on human embryonic stem cells (hESCs) growth and differentiation to
name a few.
