Nanomix Inc., a leading nanoelectronic detection company commercializing high-value diagnostic and monitoring applications, today announced an increase in the previous award of a $1 million project grant from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). 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.
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."
About Nanomix Inc.
Nanomix is a leading nanoelectronic detection company launching detection devices based on Sensation™ technology. These scaleable devices use ultra-sensitive carbon nanotube detection elements combined with proprietary chemistries. They can be deployed across high value respiratory and biodetection applications where low power consumption, small size, and ultra-sensitivity offer significant performance advantages and enable unprecedented access to critical information. Nanomix is located in Emeryville, California.
