Austin-based research and development lab, Nanohmics, Inc., receives US patent in addition to patent approval in Australia.
Austin, TX - Nanohmics, Inc., an independent research and development center that specializes in novel materials, microfabrication, electro-optics, sensors, power control and embedded systems, today announced that the United States Patent and Trademark Office has issued US Patent 9768162B2 covering imprinted semiconductor multiplex detection arrays that include semiconducting sensor devices having nanoscale features that are useful for detecting chemical and biological molecules with high sensitivity. This patent and Nanohmics’ previously issued patent US 8,450,131 B2 describes the sensors and methods for making them.
The novel detection arrays, developed by scientists at Nanohmics, are fabricated by cost- and time-efficient methods and enable gas phase and solution phase, multiplexed detection of numerous biochemical and chemical analytes on a single nanodimensioned sensing element.
“The value of this research which has led to two issued patents is already being proven in the field,” said Steve Savoy, Vice President of Technology Development at Nanohmics and lead scientist on the project. “We look forward to working with our customers to develop specific sensing applications in industrial gas safety for chemical and petroleum manufacturing in addition to exciting developments in environmental monitoring.”
