APPLIED NANOSCIENCE OPTIMIZES NANOFENSE™ FORMULATION PRODUCTION PROCESS
Applied Nanoscience Inc. (ANI), a nanotechnology-based filtration development company, today confirmed the completion of process enhancements to ensure reliable production scale-up capability of the company’s proprietary antimicrobial NanoFense technology, a U.S. patented nanoparticle formulation.
“This important process improvement further positions ANI as an attractive, strategic partner with filter media producers and established air filtration product companies that can fully exploit our technology in efforts to protect people around the world. Our patent protection also serves as an effective competitive advantage in many markets currently utilizing generic, untreated filter media components,” stated Thomas Allen, President and CEO, ANI. ANI has (16) issued international patents protecting their broad NEFT™ platform in 13 countries spanning five continents.
The patent coverage includes three main methods of associating nanoparticles with filter media:
(1) coating the filter media with a powder of nanoparticles
(2) impregnating the nanoparticles into the filter media
(3) having pellets of nanoparticles located adjacent to the filter media
ANI is a marketer and developer of nanotechnology-based, high performance air filtration products specifically targeted to eradicate bacteria, virus and fungi and is the owner of :
