NanoLogix recently received two patents. United States patent number 7,524,623 was granted for a "Method and device for rapid detection of microorganisms by changing the shape of micro-colonies" and is the first patent granted the company for BNC(TM) rapid-detection technology. Christopher Novak, NanoLogix Director of Intellectual Property said, "The issuance of the first US patent for the BioNanoChannel(TM) (BNC) this past week is a very significant development for NanoLogix. This patent provides NanoLogix with substantial intellectual property protection for their revolutionary rapid-detection technology. This greatly strengthens NanoLogix's patent portfolio with additional patents anticipated in the family of patent applications on file for this technology."
BNP(TM) and BNC(TM) are two distinct micro-biological rapid-detection technologies developed by NanoLogix. The BNP is a sandwiched-membrane, Petri-based system, that provides users the ability to view microorganism cultures up to four times faster than possible with traditional Petri techniques. The BNC is also a unique development in rapid detection. It utilizes disks the size of a quarter, each containing over two-million channels, to trap microorganisms for identification and culturing. Both BNP and BNC technologies offer the potential for reducing time-to-detection by significant amounts when contrasted with current methods in widespread use.
United States patent number 7,473,552 for the "Production of hydrogen gas and isolation of hydrogen producing microorganisms using replenishing coated substrates" was also recently received. The company adds this patent to their existing archived hydrogen-related research portfolio.
