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
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
