HUBBARD, Ohio, June 13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- NanoLogix (OTC Markets:NNLX) announced today its R&D team in collaboration with University of Texas Health Science Center - Houston (UTHSC-Houston) researchers, are developing a multi-well, microplate reader variant of the company's BioNanoFilter (BNF) diagnostics for use in large volume laboratory environments. Early analysis of the multi-well plates shows exceptionally fast live-threat results similar to the company's standard BNF technology. Starting this week, the NanoLogix BNF and BioNanoPore (BNP) technology will be on exhibit at booth #841 at the 112th General Meeting of the American Society for Microbiology in San Francisco, June 16 – June 19.
Research using NanoLogix technology from a recently completed clinical study will also be presented at the ASM General Meeting on June 17th. Dr. Jonathan Faro of UTHSC-Houston will present the research, which focused on detection, identification, and determination of antibiotic sensitivity of Group B Streptococcus (GBS) during pregnancy. Data showed NanoLogix diagnostics consistently provided results in a 4 to 6 hour window, dramatically shorter than standard culturing times of 48 to 72 hours. The data and the associated clinical study narrative is currently being formatted for submission for peer-review publication, as well as to the US FDA for acceptance as a non-invasive diagnostic technology.
"These are exciting times for NanoLogix," said CEO Bret Barnhizer. "Our technology has the potential to dramatically affect the course of human health and events over the
