Advance Nanotech's Owlstone Subsidiary Selected as One of Four Finalists in The 2008 Royal Academy of Engineering MacRobert Awards Competition
Date:5/22/2008

NEW YORK, May 22 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Advance Nanotech, Inc., (OTC Bulletin Board: AVNA), announced today that its Owlstone Nanotech Inc. subsidiary has been selected as one of four finalists for the 2008 Royal Academy of Engineering MacRobert Award, the UK's premier award for innovation in engineering. HRH the Duke of Edinburgh will present a 50,000 pounds Sterling prize and the gold award medal to the winner of this year's competition at the Academy Awards Dinner in London on June 9th, 2008. The MacRobert award recognizes the successful development of innovative ideas in engineering. The academy seeks to demonstrate the importance of engineering and the role of engineers and scientists in contribution to national prosperity and internal prestige.

"Our technology enables unprecedented miniaturization of sensors with superior analytical capability, the ability to be programmed and reprogrammed to detect a wide range of substances, and high selectivity and sensitivity," commented Andrew Koehl, founder of Owlstone and original inventor of its core technology. "Our commercial opportunity is enormous given the need for new and innovative deployment scenarios in chemical detection for homeland security, industrial process control, environmental and healthcare markets. We are deeply honored to be chosen as a finalist candidate for the prestigious MacRobert Award and are proud to be recognized among the three highly regarded companies that have also achieved 2008 finalist status, The Automation Partnership, Johnson Matthey, and Touch Bionics."

Owlstone has successfully developed a silicon chip that can detect chemicals in the ambient air. What once required a large enclosure and connected apparatus due to the sheer size of conventional sensors has been reduced down to a dime sized silicon chip that can detect a wide variety of chemicals in real time from virtually any location. The system can then be connected to a wireless communication system to
