Abstract:
Advance Nanotech, Inc., (OTC Bulletin Board: AVNA), announced today that its Owlstone Nanotech Inc. ("Owlstone") subsidiary has received a purchase order for test quantities of its FAIMS ingredient supply module from Luxembourg headquartered IEE, an innovative developer of specialized sensing systems with a global leadership position in automotive safety sensing systems. Both companies have also renewed their joint Memorandum of Understanding with the stated aim to cooperate in the promotion and marketing of the FAIMS technology in a range of markets including automotive, medical and healthcare.

Advance Nanotech's Owlstone Subsidiary Receives Order From IEE

New York, NY | Posted on June 14th, 2008

"IEE, one of Europe's leading suppliers of sensor solutions into the global automotive market," said Bret Bader, CEO of Owlstone. "This partnership will help to accelerate the growth opportunities for FAIMS, exploiting the sensor's ability to detect a greater range of gases across an equally broad range of applications. Owlstone's initial focus is delivering new and profound detection solutions for military, homeland security, and industrial applications. In partnership with IEE, application development and commercialization for niche markets that would have taken years to address can be greatly accelerated."

In response, Patrick Roulling, Business Development Manager for IEE said, "Demand for chemical sensing technology is growing across a number of markets. We have been in talks with Owlstone for 18 months and have identified their FAIMS technology as having significant performance advantages over other sensor technologies. It is our desire to work closely with Owlstone to bring new products to market rapidly and aggressively grow market share. Our focus is on transport, public & commercial infrastructure, consumer electronics, automation & logistics and medical & healthcare markets."

In addition, Advance Nanotech announced today that its Owlstone Subsidiary has also received orders for several OVG-4 vapor generators from multiple United States Military Laboratories that will be used to test and calibrate gas sensors. The OVG-4 produces accurate gas samples into the low parts per trillion levels thereby allowing users to create complex mixtures without the complexity associated with competing systems.
