Advance Nanotech Subsidiary, Owlstone Nanotech, Receives First Purchase Order for Lonestar(TM) Product from Kidde

New York, NY | Posted on October 23rd, 2007

"We have been working with Owlstone for over two years to evaluate Owlstone's FAIMS (Field Asymmetric Ion Mobility Spectrometry) technology for use in fire detection systems" said Max Allsworth, senior research physicist, Kidde. "We were pleased with the progress of testing to date".

"We are proud to announce purchase orders for our Lonestar product," said Bret Bader, CEO of Owlstone Nanotech. "Kidde is a world leader in the production of advanced systems for safety detection, prevention and protection; we believe our continuing collaboration with Kidde will lead to a new wave of detection systems incorporating FAIMS technology that alert people to fires, fumes and other dangers at the earliest possible moment, reducing the number of injuries and deaths caused by fires."

The Lonestar product line provides a powerful and adaptable chemical monitor in a self-contained, compact portable unit that can be easily integrated into industrial settings. Incorporating Owlstone's proprietary Field Asymmetric Ion Mobility Spectrometry (FAIMS) technology, the instrument offers the flexibility to provide rapid alerts and detailed sample analysis. Lonestar units can be "trained" by users for different applications by "teaching" the unit normal operating parameters against which Lonestar can detect anomalous events. It can be easily integrated with other sensors and third party systems to provide a complete monitoring solution, and is suitable for a broad variety of applications ranging from online/at line process monitoring to laboratory based research and development.
