Printed Semiconductor Technology Turns "Chip in a Lab" Into "Lab on a Chip"

NANOIDENT CTO to Speak About Printed Sensor Applications at the Organic Electronics Conference 2007

LINZ, Austria | Posted on September 19th, 2007

DI Franz Padinger, CTO for NANOIDENT Technologies AG, will speak about "Semiconductor 2.0: Products and Perspectives" at the Organic Electronics Conference & Exhibition 2007. He will explain how printed semiconductor technology has taken mobile analytics and diagnostics completely out of the lab, enabling the development of cost-effective, highly sensitive mobile testing solutions for the life sciences market.

NANOIDENT Technologies AG is the technology leader in the development and manufacture of printed semiconductor-based sensor solutions. One of its market-focused subsidiaries, BIOIDENT Technologies Inc., leverages this core technology to deliver lab-on-a-chip systems for mobile analysis and diagnosis, enabling cost-effective real-time detection of multiple chemical and biological parameters. BIOIDENT offers complete solutions for medical, environmental and chemical/biological testing applications.


DI Franz Padinger, CTO, NANOIDENT Technologies AG

Mr. Padinger, a world-renowned scientist in the field of organic
semiconductor photophysics, photochemistry and photovoltaics,
developed the world's first plastic solar cell and is responsible for
NANOIDENT's R&D activities. Prior to co-founding NANOIDENT, he served
for two years as the CTO of Konarka Austria, where he worked with Dr.
Alan Heeger, Nobel Laureate and inventor of organic semiconductors.

2:30 p.m. - 3:00 p.m. CET


Organic Electronics Conference & Exhibition 2007
Sheraton Frankfurt Hotel and Towers, Frankfurt, Germany

The 5th annual Organic Electronics Conference & Exhibition is hosted
by cintelliq, a leading analyst for the organic electronics industry,
and by the Organic Electronics Association (OE-A), the key industry
association for organic electronics. The conference covers a broad
range of topics, from applications to materials, equipment and process
technology, and draws scientists, engineers, manufacturers and
investors in organic semiconductor technologies and organic


NANOIDENT's unique expertise with printed optoelectronics allows a
photodetector to be printed directly onto the lab-on-a-chip, greatly
increasing system sensitivity while significantly decreasing system
cost and complexity. As a result, affordable mobile analytics and
diagnostics are available for a wide range of applications, from
medical diagnosis to environmental testing to the detection of
chemical and biological agents, providing real-time, point-of-use
results to enable faster response to disease or contamination.
