markets next-generation magnetic bioassays which improve rapid diagnostic performance for human and animal diagnostics, food safety and environ- mental protection testing. Magnisense is developing two rapid test formats with a single dose, producing objective, quantifiable and traceable results via a portable reader, for different application areas:


• MIAstrip® : point-of-care testing strips that enable


the identification of a target via detection of known markers for a number of diseases including avian flu, cardiac disease, tetanus and bacterial, viral, parasitic or fungal infections.


• MIAflo® : disposable cartridges for detection and


quantification of targets, such as bacterial contamina- tion in food products (e.g. Listeria and Salmonella) or water (e.g. Legionella) with a sensitivity that delivers a significant reduction in testing time.

icroGen systems, Inc. is developing a suite of products based on its proprietary piezoelec-


tric vibrational energy harvester (PZEH) technology. These low cost, long lifetime (>20 years) Micro- ElectroMechanical Systems (MEMS) are micro-power sources that extend rechargeable battery lifetime or will eliminate the need for batteries altogether.

Phase Technologies, Inc. (OTC.BB:XDSL) released a new video that provides technical


insight into how the company is developing Smart Surface applications, focusing on the self cleaning phenomena of controlling how water and non-water based liquids can selectively be controlled when ap- plied to different types of porous substrate materials.


Furthermore, the Company has entered into a letter of intent (LOI) to acquire Energy Innovative Pro- ducts, Inc. (EIP), a developer of proprietary tech- nologies for reducing energy usage in refrigeration and cooling systems, as well as equipment utilizing AC induction motors. EIP, based in Fairfield, NJ, uses patented and patent pending solutions to offer a series of products that control voltage and cur- rent used by compressor systems, including those in refrigeration decks, HVAC wall units, commercial refrigeration systems, and consumer equipment. The company, founded in 2008, believes its technology is uniquely positioned to capitalize on each of these multi-billion dollar market opportunities by allowing legacy systems to achieve Energy Star status as well as compliance with emerging standards by the United States Department of Energy (DOE) and other regula- tory bodies.
