Georgia Tech Installs BioForce Nanosciences' Molecular Printing System

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) - The Georgia Institute of Technology has purchased a Nano eNabler molecular printing system from BioForce Nanosciences, the company said today.
 
BioForce said the Nano eNabler can be used in patterning and cell adhesion, for printing proteins to direct neural cell growth, and in sensor functionalization.
 
The company sold the Nano eNabler to Georgia Tech through a pilot program that involved placing the tool in 20 biomedical and life sciences facilities for trial use.
 
Curtis Mosher, VP of R&D at BioForce, said Georgia Tech is using the system to place polymers on diagnostic sensors in “precise patterns” to create sensors with applications in personalized medicine, environmental monitoring, and remote chemical analysis.
 
Financial terms of the agreement were not released.
