NanoInk Selects Schmidt Scientific as Exclusive Distributor for China and Taiwan

SKOKIE, IL | Posted on April 30th, 2007

NanoInk's NSCRIPTOR DPN System is a fully integrated hardware and software system optimized for the DPN process of writing stable nanoscale patterns of molecular "ink" onto a sample substrate via a coated stylus tip. DPN users can build at resolutions ranging from many micrometers down to 15 nanometers, using virtually any material. This combination of ultrahigh resolution and material flexibility makes for numerous commercial applications.

"Schmidt Scientific's visibility and presence in the Nanotechnology markets in China and Taiwan will accelerate the adoption of our DPN technology in Asia," said Tom Levesque, Senior Director of DPN Global Sales. "Our technology is already in use at several prominent universities in the region, and we see it migrating into industrial development as a general purpose nanofabrication tool with a low cost and a small desktop footprint."

Bruce Lu, President of Schmidt Scientific Taiwan, Ltd., stated, "This is an important milestone in the continuing growth and success of our company. We look forward to NanoInk becoming a cornerstone of the products Schmidt Scientific offers to our nanotechnology customers in China and Taiwan."

More than thirty-five international research institutions including Academia Sinica in Taiwan, Central Electronics Engineering Research Institute (CEERI) in India, Northwestern University, Stanford University, and the University of California at Santa Barbara have already selected the NSCRIPTOR DPN System as one of the best methods to create nanoscale structures from a wide variety of materials.
