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

send back real-time results to a command station. Owlstone's proprietary FAIMS technology offers the flexibility to provide rapid alerts and detailed sample analysis with reduced flow and improved ion drive over current conventional technology. The performances of existing systems, which largely use conventional Ion Mobility Spectrometry, worsen dramatically as they are reduced in size. By contrast, the Owlstone FAIMS solution has improved sensitivity, improved selectivity at reduced power as it is miniaturized. The small size of the Owlstone sensor enables a highly integrated system with the necessary electronic and mechanical components squeezed into a compact footprint. Micro and nano-fabrication techniques enable the sensor to be manufactured in a massively parallel fashion, achieving small form factor, economy of scale and reduced unit cost. Unlike alternate miniature detectors, Owlstone's technology does not rely on exotic materials, custom engineered for each application, which often degrade over time. The Owlstone technology is easily customized to each application through software updates and can be dynamically reprogrammed for new chemicals even after deployment. Use of chemically inert materials ensures a long operational and storage life.

The Owlstone detector was conceived by Andrew Koehl who began the development of Owlstone's fundamental technology in 2001 at Caltech (California Institute of Technology) with further development at Cambridge University, England. Mr. Koehl is the inventor of the microchip spectrometer technology, the core of the Owlstone technology. That technology was furthered as he was later joined by Paul Boyle, a researcher in the Microsystems and Nanotech group at Cambridge University responsible for the design and development of the silicon-opto hybrid devices for next generation telecom systems, and David Ruiz-Alonso, a Cambridge University PhD in superconductor modeling.
