AMES, Iowa, Sept. 26 /PRNewswire/ -- The National Institutes of Health
(NIH) National Human Genome Research Institute has approved funding of
$400,000, with a potential for an additional $400,000 after August 31,
2007, to BioForce Nanosciences, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of BioForce
Nanosciences Holdings, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: BFNH). The funding will be
used to support the second phase of commercial development for surface
patterning tools (SPT(TM)). SPT molecular ink cartridges are used in the
Company's core technology, the Nano eNabler(TM) benchtop molecular printing
"The next phase of our SPT cartridge development program focuses on the
improvement and expansion of the capabilities and throughput of the
devices," noted Dr. Curtis Mosher, Vice President of Research and
Development. "SPT cartridge loading and cleaning in place are primary
objectives of the ongoing program."
Juntao Xu, a key BioForce research scientist on this project,
commented, "Our ultraminiaturized SPT cartridges are manufactured using
microfabrication techniques that allow us to readily modify the design,
materials and processing steps to enhance tool printing performance. When
our SPT portfolio is complete our customers should be able to print spots,
lines and complex paths of one or many different molecules or compounds."
Founder and CEO of BioForce Eric Henderson stated, "We were elated to
learn of this award. NIH funding provides not only critical financial
resources for the project but, importantly, also peer validation of the
importance of our commercial vision."
