JPK Instruments, a world-leading manufacturer of nanoanalytic instrumentation for research in life sciences and soft matter, reports on the use of their NanoWizard AFM systems at the Microscopy and Imaging Facility (MIF) at the University of Calgary in Canada.
This research and development project will build on Pacific Biosciences' proprietary zero-mode waveguide (ZMW) technology and imec's world-leading expertise in nanophotonics, CMOS sensors, technology integration and fabrication.
The Nanostart holding ItN Nanovation AG has completed testing of its container solutions for wastewater purification in various US federal states. As a result, the first three containers are to be sold to US customers this month. This involves a sales volume in the low six-digit euro range for ItN.
NEI Corporation introduced today a nanotechnology-enabled, two-layer coating that significantly improves the corrosion resistance of zinc-plated and hot-dip galvanized (HDG) steel. The NEI coating is a drop-in replacement for trivalent chromium.
Researchers at the Lee Bionanosciences Laboratory at UCD in Dublin have demonstrated the detection and measurement of biological analytes down to femtomolar concentration levels using an off the shelf qNano instrument. This ultra low level biodetection capability has implications for biomedical research and clinical development as trace amounts of a biological substance in a sample can now be detected and quantified using standard commercially available equipment.
PI (Physik Instrumente) LP - a leading manufacturer of motion control systems for nano-automation - provides a complete line of highly accurate 6-axis robotic parallel positioners (Hexapod/SpaceFAB) for advanced applications in fields as diverse as bio/nano-technology, aerospace, medical technology and lasers/photonics.
The LRV-17 is built from Arovex, a carbon fiber nanocomposite system (carbon fiber reinforced plastic enhanced with carbon nanotubes or CFRP-CNT) that reduces structural weight, allowing for more efficient fuel usage and increased range.
The seven-year fund launches with a $53m commitment from its LPs with a target fund size of $150m. Its remit will be to invest in international nanotechnology that has applications of value within the Russian Federation, with a focus on the resource sector as well as water and agriculture.
Bosch awarded its first round of research grants totaling nearly $1 million and also provided funds for over 40 internships, strengthening its long-standing investment in the development of energy-efficient technologies, as well as its support of leading U.S. universities.
mPhase Technologies, Inc. and Stevens Institute of Technology have announced an official agreement to jointly pursue business opportunities with government and industry as well as research and development projects.
