CA --- June 28, 2005 --- Nanomix
Incorporated, a company that is commercializing
a line of nanoelectronic detection devices for industrial
and biomedical applications, today announced the
release of a second detection device based on the Sensation ™ technology
platform. The Nanoelectronic Detection System (NDS)
is a stand-alone hydrogen detector featuring ultra-low
power usage and high specificity.
The NDS targets lab applications and point-of-use detection of hydrogen required
in various industries. The device is designed to detect accidental accumulation
of highly explosive hydrogen gas and alarm when hazardous levels have been
reached. As with other products from Nanomix, the NDS consumes nanowatts of
power, and is highly specific to practically eliminate false alarms.
"The release of our second product utilizing Sensation ™ detection technology
further demonstrates our ability to generate applications from our platform.
We are confident that nanoelectronic detection devices will expand current detection
applications and will enable breakthroughs that address significant unmet needs
across several industry segments," said David Macdonald, President and CEO of
Nanomix is launching a portfolio of devices based on Sensation ™ detection
technology. These scaleable, nanoelectronic devices use ultra-sensitive
carbon nanotube sensing elements combined with proprietary chemistries.
These devices can be deployed across a broad range of industrial and
medical applications where the attributes of nanodetection technology
-- low power consumption, small form factor, and high sensitivity offer
significant performance advantages and enable unprecedented access
to critical information. Nanomix is located in Emeryville, California.
