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."
