Advance Nanotech Subsidiary Receives Six-Figure Repeat Order and Scales up Production

New York, NY | Posted on May 22nd, 2007

Under the terms of the order, Owlstone Nanotech will conduct engineering tasks with the aim of further commercializing the technology for homeland defense and military applications. This contract also serves to further deepen the relationship between the defense contractor and Owlstone Nanotech. Due to the confidential nature of the work undertaken, the Company is unable to disclose the name of the contractor at this time.

"We are very pleased to have secured this follow on order," said Bret Bader, CEO of Owlstone Nanotech. "This order will serve to further our efforts toward commercialization and is the last step before formalizing our collaboration with this established partner as we seek to address the burgeoning opportunities for the Owlstone sensor in the homeland defense and military markets."

Owlstone Nanotech, in which Advance Nanotech owns a majority stake, has used leading-edge micro- and nano-fabrication techniques to create a chemical detection system one hundred times smaller and a thousand times cheaper than existing technology. Owlstone Nanotech partners with market leaders to integrate its technology into a wide range of commercial applications to allow the efficient and accurate detection of various chemical agents including contaminants, chemical warfare agents and potentially harmful gases. This revolutionary technology will help to redefine chemical detection systems, opening the door to new and innovative products across a wide-range of industries.

Commenting on the announcement, Tony Goncalves, CEO of Advance Nanotech, said: "This order will serve to further cement Owlstone Nanotech's relationship with this established partner and reaffirms the significant technical advantages over competitors. The success of Owlstone Nanotech is a further testament to the value of Advance Nanotech's Homeland Security division. We are confident of a strong 2007 performance for the division, which presently has multiple products at market. The division is generating revenues and continues to sign up new customers."
