Abstract:
Austin, Texas-based Nano-Proprietary, Inc. (OTC BB: NNPP) announced that its subsidiary Applied Nanotech, Inc. (‘ANI") received a notice of allowance for its patent titled "Nanobiosensor and carbon nanotube thin film transistor." This patent is one of the basic patents that covers a wide variety of biosensor applications and will protect our nanobiosensor platform. For more information on our biosensor technology, see our press release dated October 21, 2003. www.nano-proprietary.com/PDFs/Oct_21_2003.pdf

Nano-Proprietary Announces Nanobiosensor Patent

Austin, TX | Posted on February 29th, 2008

This patent combines a sensing element with a thin film transistor structure to report and measure the results. The sensing element is comprised of a combination of conductive polymers, enzymes, and non-aligned carbon nanotubes deposited using a low-cost process. The thin film transistor amplifies the signal of the sensor and provides integration between the sensing capabilities and nanoelectronics. For more information about ANI's thin film transistor approach please see "Solution-deposited carbon nanotube layers for flexible display applications" published in Physica E 37 (2007), pages 119-123, and originally published on September 11, 2006. The claims in this patent represent and protect ANI's technology for integrating carbon nanotube based nanoelectronics with organic and living matters.

"This is a perfect example of the interdisciplinary nature of nanotechnology, an area where ANI excels," said Dr. Zvi Yaniv, Chief Executive Officer of Applied Nanotech, Inc. "The integration of organic molecules and nanoparticles can create exciting new technologies which have potential to benefit the human race."
