Nano-Proprietary and NanoReady Announce Strategic Alliance to Commercialize Metallic Nanoparticles
News May 16, 2008
Nano-Proprietary, Inc. through its subsidiary, Applied Nanotech, Inc. (ANI), and NanoReady Ltd. of Israel announced a strategic alliance for the manufacturing in volume metallic nanoparticles using NanoReady’s wet chemistry process.
The initial focus of the strategic alliance will be volume production of copper nanoparticles to be utilized on a worldwide exclusive basis by ANI and its partner in Japan for producing inkjettable copper inks for the flexible electronics, solar cell, digital printed circuit board (PCB) and many other industries.
Nano-Proprietary says that the current agreement with NanoReady is highly important due to ANI’s fast progress in developing inkjettable copper inks. Based on this progress ANI and its partner in Japan decided that it would be important to secure volume production of copper nanoparticles and, in the future, other metallic nanoparticles for their metallic ink products.
“We are very pleased to cooperate with NanoReady and develop our products based on their proprietary wet chemistry process that is inducible to high volume production of copper nanoparticles required for our ink products,” said Dr. Zvi Yaniv, president and CEO of ANI.
Ronen Frish, NanoReady’s CEO, adds: “The cooperation of our two companies opens a broad range of new opportunities within the ink industry and will lead to opportunities in additional industries.”
Old age is the greatest risk factor for many diseases, including Alzheimer's disease (AD) and cancer. Geroprotectors are a recently identified class of anti-aging compounds. New research has now identified a unique subclass of these compounds, dubbed geroneuroprotectors (GNPs), which are AD drug candidates and slow the aging process in mice.READ MORE
