Advance Nanotech Announces First Order Addressing Environmental Chemical Detection Monitoring

New York, NY | Posted on September 23rd, 2008

Commenting on the contract, Bret Bader, CEO of Advance Nanotech, said, "This order marks our entry into environmental monitoring, a very large market, similar in size to the homeland defense and industrial process controls verticals for which we recently launched applications. The versatility of our Lonestar gas and chemical monitor has enabled us to develop multi-market applications. The Owlstone technology was chosen for its superior real-time, advanced detection capabilities that are able to identify chemicals such as chlorine, ammonia and other toxic industrial chemicals in the parts per million and parts per billion ranges. Lonestar, the first commercial product embedding the Owlstone technology, is unique, ensuring a high level of sensitivity, selectivity while delivering the ability to be easily reprogrammed."
