The grant amendment adds $260,000 to the second year of the grant, for a total of $1.26 million. DHS leads the national effort to secure America by preventing and deterring terrorist attacks and protecting against and responding to threats and hazards to the nation. The Nanomix grant covers a three year period and will be developed in cooperation with the Naval Research Laboratories. For security reasons the scope of the project will not be disclosed.

Nanomix Announces Increase in Grant From Department of Homeland Security to $1.26 Million

EMERYVILLE, CA | Posted on August 8th, 2007

The Nanomix Sensation™ platform enables detection of a broad array of chemical and bio molecules. It has high specificity and reproducibility, operates at room temperature, consumes little power, and permits both wireless integration and simple deployment.

"Progress on the grant work continues and we are pleased with our collaboration with the Naval Research Laboratories," said David Macdonald, President and CEO of Nanomix. "We bring unique technical expertise and experience to this project. Furthermore, all applications enabled by Sensation technology improve health or safety in some regard - this project is certainly consistent with that philosophy."
