Printed photonics technology enables truly mobile analytics & diagnostics

NANOIDENT developer to speak about the next generation of printed lab-on-a-chip devices at SPIE Europe Security & Defence 2007

Linz, Austria | Posted on September 11th, 2007

Roland Pieler, Developer for NANOIDENT Technologies AG's Life Sciences Division, will
present "Printed Photonics for Lab-on-Chip Applications" at SPIE Europe Security &
Defence 2007. Mr. Pieler will explain how printed photonics technology improves the
functionality of lab-on-a-chip systems, enabling true real-time, point-of-use diagnostics
and analytics.

NANOIDENT Technologies AG is the technology leader in the development and
manufacture of printed semiconductor-based sensor solutions. BIOIDENT Technologies
Inc., one of NANOIDENT's market-focused subsidiaries, leverages NANOIDENT's
technology to provide printed semiconductor-based photonic lab-on-a-chip solutions for
life sciences. BIOIDENT's PhotonicLab™ platform received the 2007 Frost & Sullivan
Enabling Technology of the Year Award, and enables real-time, multi-parameter detection
and analysis capability for environmental testing, chemical and biological threat detection
and in-vitro diagnostics applications.

WHO:
DI Roland Pieler, Developer, NANOIDENT Life Sciences Division
Roland Pieler studied electrical and biomedical engineering at the University of
Technology Graz, Austria. After finishing his degree, he continued working at the Institute
of Genomics and Bioinformatics, Graz, in the field of Microarray Analysis and Software
Engineering. Soon he joined the Device Development division at the newly founded
„Center for Biomedical Nanotechnology" at UAR (Upper Austrian Research), Linz, Austria.
There, his main activities included software and hardware development for a
multipurpose fluorescence scanner. Mr. Pieler is well published, having authored
publications in professional journals in the field of Bioinformatics. As a member of
NANOIDENT's R&D team, he is responsible for prototype development, sensor layout and
software engineering issues.

WHEN:
Tuesday, September 18, 2007
3:10 p.m. - 3:30 p.m. CET

WHERE:
SPIE Europe Security & Defence 2007
Palazzo degli Affari, Florence, Italy
The 4th European Symposium on Optics/Photonics in Security & Defence is organized by
SPIE Europe. The conference will address both applications and underlying science in
advanced defense and security systems, as well as the challenges brought about by
network capabilities in military operations and the increasing need for urban
peacekeeping activities. With a European focus, this event attracts more than 400
attendees from government, academia and industry.

WHY:
NANOIDENT's printed semiconductor technology, combined with BIOIDENT's expertise in
microfluidics and chemical/biological testing, are changing the game in the mobile
analytics and diagnostics market. Medical, environmental and chemical/biological tests
no longer require bulky, expensive equipment; as a result, these highly sensitive tests can
be performed at lower cost, onsite in real-time, ensuring faster response to disease or
contamination.
