Nanotechnology Testing Firm Adds Industry Clout to Board of Directors

Houston, TX | Posted on April 26th, 2007

Bob Payne has been named to the board of directors of nanoTox(TM),
( http://www.nanotox.com ) and brings more than 30 years experience in the
field of petrochemicals and process technology licensing at the
international level.

"We're seeing continued rapid growth in nanotechnology R&D," said
Payne, "along with corresponding plans for future investment in
nanoproducts and services."

"Needless to say, it's vital to this new industry that the products
created are environmentally friendly and safe for all who may come in
contact with or use them," Payne said.

"We're talking to companies that share our feeling that the industry
can't wait for regulators to take action," said Jan Dryselius, the
company's Chairman, "and Bob has worked with these research and
manufacturing giants for decades."

Dryselius noted Payne's background is a near-perfect fit with the
mission of nanoTox.

"He brings global experience and has worked on projects with and
provided services to internationally-recognized chemical and engineering
companies."

Payne was the Director of Licensing for one of the world's largest
vinyls producers, and successfully managed a multi-million dollar process
technology licensing and chemical catalyst business. He is also the Past
Chair (2006) of The Licensing Executive Society's (LES) Chemical, Energy
and Materials Committee, a committee of LES licensing professionals which
provides a forum for all interested LES members on licensing and technology
transfer opportunities and issues for nanomaterials.

Payne is acutely aware of the widely-held view that nanotechnology
represents the start of the "next technological revolution," and says "he
is pleased to have the opportunity to contribute to nanoTox' mission of
facilitating the development and deployment of safe, useful
nanotechnologies, and thus enhancing future developments in the field of
nanoscience."

The company is building testing facilities at Texas State
University-San Marcos, through the university's Nanomaterials Application
Center, and has facilities in Maastricht, Netherlands.
