Abstract:
The Center of Innovation for Nanobiotechnology (COIN) today announced their third Executive Roundtable event to be hosted at the RTP Foundation Building in Research Triangle Park, NC on January 18, 2011. This event series offers executives and entrepreneurs of North Carolina-based nanobiotechnology companies and others involved in this exciting field an opportunity to discuss key business issues and build relationships. The focus of this Roundtable will be unique issues of
commercializing nanobiotech analytical tools with presentations by the nanotools companies Izon Science, NanoInk and NanoSight.

COIN Hosts Nanobiotechnology Event on Commercializing NanoBio Tools

Raleigh, NC | Posted on January 5th, 2011

COIN is a non-profit that promotes commercialization of nanobiotechnology in North Carolina and beyond. The opportunity represented by the myriad applications of nanobiotechnology in key life science and medical product sectors for the state is significant. COIN's programs and services are designed to help accelerate innovation management and new product development and commercialization.

Nanotools companies are among the emerging key players in the nanobio ecosystem. COIN has invited these companies to tell about their platforms as well as to talk in a panel format about their company's commercial path and to discuss their perspectives on growth opportunities in the nanobio field. We will hear presentations from senior representatives from of the following tool companies:

• NanoInk, Inc., an emerging growth technology company specializing in nanometer-scale manufacturing and applications development for the life sciences, engineering, pharmaceutical, and education industries
• NanoSight which provides a unique technology to visualize and size nano-scale particles in liquid down to 10 nm with little preparation and at low cost
• Izon Science, a nanotechnology company which has developed instrumentation for nanoscale particle analysis

Each company representative will deliver a 10-minute talk followed by a panel discussion moderated by Miles Wright of Xanofi. The talks will have an element of explaining what the technology does, but will be heavily focused on commercialization, addressing issues such as establishing a customer base, trends they see in their spaces, and how their platforms play into the larger nanobiotech ecosystem.

The NanoBio Executive Roundtable event will be held at the RTP Foundation Building (12 Davis Drive, Research Triangle Park, NC) on January 18, 2011 from 5:30 to 7:30 pm. Attendees will also enjoy a gala networking reception that facilitates connections that lead to collaborations and new business relationships. There are several generous sponsors for this Roundtable event, including Xanofi as the venue sponsor as well as RTI International, McDonnell Boehnen Hulbert & Berghoff LLP (MBHB), MEMSCAP, and Grant Thornton.
