Owlstone Nanotech Deploys
Test Sensors with Leading Manufacturer of Fire
Detection Equipment; Owlstone and Kidde to Test
Sensor in Next Generation Fire Detection Systems
NEW YORK --(Business Wire)-- Nov. 4, 2005 -- Owlstone Nanotech, Inc., a pioneer
in the commercialization of nanotechnology-based chemical detection products,
today announced a beta testing program with Kidde, the global fire and safety
group. The Owlstone Sensor, a nano-fabricated chemical detection system, will
be tested for suitability in the next generation of its safety detection, prevention
and protection systems. Owlstone Nanotech is a subsidiary of Advance Nanotech,
Inc., (OTC BB:AVNA.OB - News). Kidde is part of UTC Fire & Security, a business
unit of United Technologies Corp. (NYSE:UTX).
is developing a revolutionary micro-machined gas
sensor, which, with its associated electronics and
software, provides what is in effect an analytical
instrument on a chip, programmable for a range of analytes. The technology holds
significant promise for the cost-effective detection of volatile organic compounds
related to pre-combustion fire events and indoor air quality monitoring. These
are currently very difficult to detect and differentiate in an inexpensive manner
using existing chemical sensors.
"Our mission is to make the world a safer place. Owlstone is developing miniaturized
chemical detection sensors that quickly and accurately identify trace elements
of toxins, contaminants and chemical agents - something that may play an integral
part in making the world safer," said Max Allsworth, senior research physicist,
Kidde. "We are very excited to investigate how the Owlstone Sensor may help Kidde
bring new functionality to its industry-leading set of fire detection products."
Owlstone Nanotech has used leading-edge micro- and nano- fabrication techniques
to create a chemical detection system one hundred times smaller and a thousand
times cheaper than existing technology. Owlstone Nanotech partners with market
leaders to integrate its technology into a wide range of commercial applications
to allow the efficient and accurate detection of various chemical agents including
contaminants, chemical warfare agents and potentially harmful gases. This revolutionary
technology will help to redefine chemical detection systems, opening the door
to new and innovative products across a wide-range of industries.
"People trust Kidde to provide the most advanced systems for safety detection,
prevention and protection; the company is dedicated to protecting people and
assets from everyday hazards and danger," said Paul Boyle, president and co-founder,
Owlstone Nanotech. "We believe that the Owlstone Sensor will enable Kidde to
deliver an even more powerful generation of detection systems that alert people
to fires, fumes and other dangers at the earliest possible moment, reducing the
number of injuries and deaths caused by fires."
Kidde is part of UTC Fire & Security which is a $4.5 billion dollar business
providing fire safety and security solutions to more than one million customers
worldwide. Brand names in the UTC Fire & Security portfolio include Chubb,
Kidde, Lenel, Onity and many others. The company is headquartered in Farmington
Connecticut. UTC Fire & Security is a business unit of United Technologies
Corp., which is based in Hartford, Conn. UTC provides high-technology products
and services to the commercial building and the aerospace industries. For more

About Owlstone Nanotech, Inc.
Owlstone Nanotech is a pioneer in the commercialization of nanotechnology-based
chemical detection products. Its initial commercial product, The Owlstone Detector,
is a revolutionary dime-sized device that can be programmed to detect a wide
range of chemical agents that may be present in extremely small quantities. Using
leading-edge micro- and nano- fabrication techniques, Owlstone has created a
complete chemical detection system a hundred times smaller and a thousand times
cheaper than existing technology. There are numerous applications - across industries
from security and defense to automotive and healthcare - that depend on the rapid,
accurate detection and measurement of chemical compounds. Owlstone works with
market leaders within these applications to integrate the detector into next
generation chemical sensing products and solutions. Owlstone's technology offers
a unique combination of benefits, including: small size, low manufacturing costs,
minimal power consumption, reduced false-positives, and a customizable platform.
