NanoInk Hosts Future Nanotechnologists At Nano Open House

Chicago, IL | Posted on November 9th, 2010

NanoInk, Inc.®, a global leader in nanotechnology, announced today that students and faculty from College of Lake County and Harper College visited NanoInk's headquarters to learn more about the company's exciting nanotechnology-based businesses and meet with NanoInk employees.

During their visit, students listened to NanoInk CEO, James Hussey, speak about the growing need for nano-savvy employees and learned about the benefits that NanoInk's different commercial divisions - NanoFabrication Systems, Nano BioDiscovery, NanoProfessor™, and NanoGuardian™ - hold for society. Following presentations from NanoInk's business leaders, the students toured the Nano BioDiscovery and NanoProfessor Nanoscience Education Labs.

"My students were fascinated to see first-hand the various ways NanoInk is impacting our world today and into the future. The exposure to several commercially viable nano-based businesses provided them with additional motivation to continue on their nanotech educational path," said Ahmad Audi, Ph.D., chair of the nanoscience technology program at College of Lake County. "NanoInk understands the impact nanotechnology can have on our future, and perhaps more importantly, they also recognize that now is the time to provide hands-on training that prepares students to meet the growing demand for a nano-savvy workforce."

Dean Hart, executive vice president of NanoInk said, "We are excited to have had the opportunity to host students from College of Lake County and Harper College and showcase nanotechnology's use in real-world commercial applications. We are also pleased that we were able to provide students with a chance to engage with NanoInk employees and discuss the ample career possibilities within the evolving field of nanotechnology. Along with our NanoProfessor Nanoscience Education Program, we see this outreach as another way we can support President Obama's ‘Educate to Innovate' campaign to improve the performance of America's students in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education."

NanoInk's NanoFabrication Systems Division brings sophisticated nanofabrication to the laboratory desktop in an easy-to-use and affordable setting. NanoInk's NLP 2000 System is a desktop nanofabrication system that allows researchers to rapidly design and create custom-engineered and functionalized surfaces, using Dip Pen Nanolithography® (DPN®) to transfer minute amounts of materials over a large, environmentally controlled work area.

NanoInk's Nano BioDiscovery Division provides a new generation of array-based instrument systems, assay kits, and contract services for nanoscale protein detection. By combining DPN nanofabrication technology with optimized substrates and next-generation detection systems for a total system solution, Nano BioDiscovery helps its customers address major proteomic challenges.

NanoInk's NanoProfessor Nanoscience Education Program aims to expand hands-on nanotechnology education from the clean rooms of research-based universities to undergraduate classrooms. The program alternates between classroom lectures and hands-on lab work and includes a 275-page textbook authored by leading nanotechnology experts covering the topics of Nanotechnology Basics, NanoPhysics, NanoChemistry, NanoBiology and Environmental, Health, and Safety perspectives on nanotechnology. For more information on how the NanoProfessor Nanoscience Education Program can be implemented at your community college, technical institute, high school, or university, please call (847) 679-NANO (6266) or visit www.NanoProfessor.net.

NanoInk's NanoGuardian Division focuses exclusively on delivering brand protection solutions to fight illegal diversion and counterfeiting. Anchored by NanoInk's novel NanoEncryption™ technology, NanoGuardian enables manufacturers to authenticate and trace the integrity of their products across the supply chain.
