NANOIDENT developer to speak about the next generation of printed lab-on-a-chip devices at SPIE Europe Security and Defence 2007

(Nanowerk News) Roland Pieler, Developer for NANOIDENT Technologies AG’s Life Sciences Division, will present "Printed Photonics for Lab-on-Chip Applications" at SPIE Europe Security & Defence 2007. Mr. Pieler will explain how printed photonics technology improves the functionality of lab-on-a-chip systems, enabling true real-time, point-of-use diagnostics and analytics.
NANOIDENT Technologies AG is the technology leader in the development and manufacture of printed semiconductor-based sensor solutions. BIOIDENT Technologies Inc., one of NANOIDENT’s market-focused subsidiaries, leverages NANOIDENT’s technology to provide printed semiconductor-based photonic lab-on-a-chip solutions for life sciences. BIOIDENT’s PhotonicLab™ platform received the 2007 Frost & Sullivan Enabling Technology of the Year Award, and enables real-time, multi-parameter detection and analysis capability for environmental testing, chemical and biological threat detection and in-vitro diagnostics applications.
WHO:
DI Roland Pieler, Developer, NANOIDENT Life Sciences Division Roland Pieler studied electrical and biomedical engineering at the University of Technology Graz, Austria. After finishing his degree, he continued working at the Institute of Genomics and Bioinformatics, Graz, in the field of Microarray Analysis and Software Engineering. Soon he joined the Device Development division at the newly founded „Center for Biomedical Nanotechnology“ at UAR (Upper Austrian Research), Linz, Austria. There, his main activities included software and hardware development for a multipurpose fluorescence scanner. Mr. Pieler is well published, having authored publications in professional journals in the field of Bioinformatics. As a member of NANOIDENT’s R&D team, he is responsible for prototype development, sensor layout and software engineering issues.
WHEN:
Tuesday, September 18, 2007; 3:10 p.m. – 3:30 p.m. CET
WHERE:
SPIE Europe Security & Defence 2007; Palazzo degli Affari, Florence, Italy
The 4th European Symposium on Optics/Photonics in Security & Defence is organized by SPIE Europe. The conference will address both applications and underlying science in advanced defense and security systems, as well as the challenges brought about by network capabilities in military operations and the increasing need for urban peacekeeping activities. With a European focus, this event attracts more than 400 attendees from government, academia and industry.
WHY:
NANOIDENT’s printed semiconductor technology, combined with BIOIDENT’s expertise in microfluidics and chemical/biological testing, are changing the game in the mobile analytics and diagnostics market. Medical, environmental and chemical/biological tests no longer require bulky, expensive equipment; as a result, these highly sensitive tests can be performed at lower cost, onsite in real-time, ensuring faster response to disease or contamination.
