NanoSensors Tests Initial Prototype of Product to Detect E-Coli

    SANTA CLARA, Calif., Nov. 15 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- NanoSensors,
 Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board:   NNSR.OB), a nanotechnology development company
 that develops instruments and sensors to detect explosives, chemical and
 biological agents announced today that it has completed manufacturing the
 initial prototype of its planned product to detect e-coli. The product is
 based on the Company's recently licensed nanoporous silicon-based biosensor
 technology to detect e-coli.
     As previously announced, the proposed sensor has been designed to
 consist of two core functional parts: a disposable housing unit in which
 the actual sensor device is mounted and a separate, external data
 acquisition unit. Based on this design, the sensor device transmits signals
 across electrical leads to the data acquisition unit, which accepts the
 output signal from the housing unit and converts the signal to the
 appropriate format to display the results.
     The first prototype of the disposable housing unit which holds the
 actual sensor device was built during October 2006. The Company has
 completed a series of design tests on the disposable housing unit and
 following certain design improvements the Company believes that it has a
 functional prototype.
     In November, the Company initiated a second testing phase in order to
 test the interoperability between the housing unit and the data acquisition
 unit, which is the second core part of the proposed sensor. The first
 hardware prototype of the data acquisition unit was recently completed.
 Initial testing on the integration of the disposable housing and data
 acquisition unit has started, and to date, no design problems have arisen.
     "We are extremely pleased with the progress in the development of our
 first biosensor product," stated Dr. Ted Wong, the Company's Chief
 Executive Officer. "Our plans are to build a sufficient quantity of the
 disposable housing and data acquisition units before calendar year-end so
 that we can begin third party testing of the product in the first quarter
 of 2007."
