Home > Press > Love on the nanoscale: nanoTox Meets with Potential Joint Venture Partners in Japan

Abstract:
nanoTox Inc., the only company to provide complete risk assessment exclusively for nanoparticles, hopes to find its perfect match when it meets with a select group of technology firms in Tokyo, Japan, next week. The meetings, arranged in part by Japan External Trade Organization (JETRO), will take place during nano tech 2009, the world's largest annual nanotechnology exhibition and conference event on February 18-20, 2009.

Love on the nanoscale: nanoTox Meets with Potential Joint Venture Partners in Japan

Austin, TX | Posted on February 12th, 2009

"We are actively looking for a joint venture partner in the Pacific region," said Greg King, nanoTox Chief Operating Officer and former director of corporate treasury with Mitsubishi Caterpillar Forklift, a subsidiary of Mitsubishi Heavy Industries headquartered in Tokyo. "This event will allow us to meet with many of the region's most capable firms with understanding of and mutual interests in the nanotech arena, especially regarding nanotoxicology risk assessment. Japan is an important center for nano-technology development and use."

Companies and organizations from all over the world will showcase their cutting-edge products, services and technologies during nano tech 2009. Last year's conference attracted 49,365 visitors and 522 exhibitors.

"This year will see dramatic changes in regulatory policy affecting nanotechnology," said King. "As companies with nanoparticles in their products prepare for market, they will require much more analysis of the risks those particles may pose to the environment and public health. We are looking for a partner that will allow nanoTox to further assist those companies in rapid assessment of their products so that we can help them mitigate or manage risks appropriately and shorten their time to market."
