NanoInk Launches NanoBioDiscovery Div.
Nanotechnology enterprise NanoInk Inc. announced the launch of its new NanoBioDiscovery Div., which will focus on novel technologies for biomarker and drug discovery. Located in Skokie, Ill., NanoInk’s new division will utilize dip-pen nanolithography nanofabrication techniques, in combination with proprietary detection systems, to produce uniquely sensitive assays for protein discovery and identification. Femtofluidics handling of samples and reagents with these systems will help provide key benefits for users, including enhanced reaction kinetics and assay cost savings, NanoInk said.
- The use of atoms, molecules and molecular-scale structures to enhance existing technology and develop new materials and devices. The goal of this technology is to manipulate atomic and molecular particles to create devices that are thousands of times smaller and faster than those of the current microtechnologies.
- The technology of generating and harnessing light and other forms of radiant energy whose quantum unit is the photon. The science includes light emission, transmission, deflection, amplification and detection by optical components and instruments, lasers and other light sources, fiber optics, electro-optical instrumentation, related hardware and electronics, and sophisticated systems. The range of applications of photonics extends from energy generation to detection to communications and...
