and the following integration into NanoFocus AG meant another strategic milestone. The now offered product line µsprint originates from there. It is used for production because of the fastest confocal sensors available on the market. Compared to the earlier product groups µscan and µsurf of NanoFocus AG that were mainly applied in research & development and for statistical final checks µsprint offers much higher sales potential.
transmission electron microscopy. The grant provides approximately $200,000 in research and develop- ment funds for a Phase I study. Founded in 2007, NanoImaging Services was pioneered by a team of highly experienced scientific experts, and has be- come the leader in providing superior nanoparticle imaging services to the pharmaceutical, biotechno- logy and nanotechnology communities, specializing in using transmission electron microscopy for direct visualization of nanoscale samples in solution. The company is recognized for its legacy of innovation and achievement in developing new technologies and automated methods for transmission electron microscopy and analysis.
In the current fiscal year, NanoFocus could see first positive signals on the market. The demand for in- vestment goods in optoelectronics is recovering and develops better compared to last year. For the full year 2010, the company expects increasing sales and a positive annual result.
anoImaging Services, Inc., has received a Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) grant
from the National Institutes of Health through the National Center for Research Resources to develop new methods for quantitative characterization of nanoparticle morphology and aggregation state using
anoInk, Inc., a global leader in nanotechnology, announced that its NanoFabrication Systems
Division instruments have now been proven to support three new applications of importance to biological research. Leveraging patented Dip Pen Na- nolithography®
(DPN® ) technology, NanoInk has de-
monstrated the successful use of its NLP 2000 System for functionalizing biosensors, patterning functional hydrogels, and printing multiplexed protein arrays. Launched in 2009 as a tool for bioscience research, the NLP 2000 System is a simple, user-friendly desk- top nanolithography platform. It can deposit sub- micron sized features of a wide variety of materials on virtually any planar surface. The NLP 2000 Sy- stem employs high resolution nanopositioning stages, greatly simplifying the deposition process. With the launch of three new Application Notes that further validates the utility of the NLP 2000 System in biolo- gical applications, NanoInk promises to be a valuable partner to the life science community.
