Announces Collaboration With Cornell University Center for Materials Research

SensiVida Medical Technologies, Inc. Selected to Receive JumpStart Program Funding

Henrietta, NY | Posted on September 9th, 2010

Jose Mir, President of SensiVida Medical Technologies, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: SVMT), a company developing painless bio-medical diagnostic devices, announced today that the company has been awarded JumpStart program funding from the Cornell Center for Materials Research (CCMR) for the Fall semester, 2010. JumpStart projects, supported by grants from the New York State Foundation for Science, Technology and Innovation (NYSTAR), enable businesses to work collaboratively with faculty on fundamental aspects of emerging technologies in the area of materials science. The CCMR program chooses projects with the greatest potential for creating a mutually beneficial, long-term relationship with Cornell University.

SensiVida Medical Technologies, Inc. is developing a painless glucose biomedical monitor for diabetic patients and at-risk individuals that will automatically provide accurate, periodic measurements of their blood glucose levels, without the need for blood extraction, and enable them to better adjust their lifestyles, diets, and medication. The novel diagnostic technology is expected to improve test compliance and significantly improve quality of life and long term health.

Through this JumpStart project, SensiVida will work in collaboration with Cornell University Professor Antje Baeumner, who has researched extensively in the areas of biosensors and nanotechnology, Together, Baeumner and SensiVida research scientists will seek to develop further understanding of material stability and reproducibility to help guide selection of the most reliable chemical sensing system for their innovative glucose biomedical monitor.

Commenting on this collaboration, Mr. Mir said, "Our scientists are very excited to work with such a world renowned scientist as Professor Baeumner. She is the Chair of the 2010 Gordon Research Conference on Bioanalytical Sensors and has published many important publications in the area of biosensors and micro-Total Analysis Systems." Professor Baeumner has secured more than $5 Million in federal and foundation funding for her research and has mentored over 30 graduate and over 60 undergraduate students in her research group.

Dr. Baeumner recently commented on this important joint project, stating, "The collaboration with SensiVida through the CCMR JumpStart project will provide a unique opportunity to carry out important fundamental research with an eye on commercialization in the development of SensiVida's novel biosensing systems. This will be the beginning of a long-term research relationship between the Baeumner Biosensors and Bioanalytical Microsystems Laboratory and SensiVida."
