BioForce Nanosciences, Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of BioForce Nanosciences Holdings, Inc. (OTCBB:BFNH), today announced that it has received notice from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) that its "Protein Nanoarray" patent (US Pat. No. 6,573,369) has been upheld following a request for re-examination of the previously issued patent by a third party.
BioForce Nanosciences Announces Confirmation of Its Nanoarray Patent
AMES, IA | Posted on October 15th, 2007
BioForce currently commercializes ultramicro arrays that are created using its Nano eNabler(tm) system. These miniaturized diagnostic and discovery tests have features sizes in the one micrometer to twenty micrometer diameter range (a human hair is about 70 micrometers in diameter). The Protein Nanoarray patent covers arrays of proteins having feature sizes of less than one micron squared and containing one or more different protein species. This size scale represents the ultimate level of miniaturization for biological diagnostic and discovery tests.
"This patent has now undergone extraordinary analysis by the USPTO" explained Dr. Eric Henderson, BioForce's founder, CEO and co-inventor of the patent. "Our success in this reexamination gives us confidence that as we make progress toward commercial development of miniaturized diagnostic tests we will have the appropriate intellectual property protection. We have created prototype Protein Nanoarrays as described in this patent and are positioned to begin to commercialize them when the market is ready."
Curtis Mosher, BioForce's Vice President of R&D and co-inventor of the patent, stated, "We continue to make improvements in our Nano eNabler (tm) system that allow it to create extremely miniaturized diagnostics tests. With tests this small a single drop of blood, a tear, or a few cells from a cheek swab can be used for multiple diagnoses with minimal patient impact. This is a fundamental requirement for our long term business goal of patient empowerment and truly personalized medicine."
