Manhattan Scientifics and Senior Scientifics Collaborate to Enhance Early Cancer Detection System
News Oct 28, 2009
Manhattan Scientifics and Senior Scientific, LLC announced that they have begun cooperative work to commercialize Senior Scientific’s nano medicine cancer detection technology. Both companies are collaborating under the Letter of Intent signed October 16, 2009, by filing a patent application and laying the groundwork to enhance commercialization.
Manhattan Scientifics' patent attorney V. Gerald Grafe filed a provisional patent with the U.S. Patent Office on behalf of Senior Scientific President Dr. Edward R. Flynn, describing Flynn's magnetic needle leukemia cancer cell detection invention based on the use of nano particles.
Edward Flynn, President of Senior Scientific, said, “Senior Scientific will maintain its full facilities and staff at the University of New Mexico Technology Park. We are fully funded through NIH research grants, and will continue to pursue and advance our novel technology in early cancer detection. Manhattan Scientifics will employ its own assets to commercialize our technology for the benefit of both our organizations.”
Manhattan Scientifics' CEO Manny Tsoupanarias said, "Both Senior Scientific, LLC and Manhattan Scientifics Inc. are sufficiently capitalized to undertake the challenging project ahead. As we demonstrated in the past with Carpenter Technology Corporation, we intend to open dialog with a number of Fortune 50 pharmaceutical and medical device industry companies in order to identify an appropriate, well-capitalized industrial partner, following our established business model and goal of bringing product to the market on an accelerated basis.”
With respect to its contract with Carpenter Technology Corporation, Manhattan Scientifics received its initial $600,000 payment under terms of its 4-year licensing agreement.
Rechargable Antibacterial Coating - Just Add Bleach!News
Stainless steel is the gold standard for kitchen appliances and cookware, described as modern and sleek. But bacteria can grow on stainless steel surfaces, contaminating food. Current coatings available on the market are pricey and potentially harmful, so scientists have now developed an affordable specialized polymer coating for such surfaces that they can recharge with bleach treatments.READ MORE

A New Class of GlassNews
Lightning and volcanos both produce glass, and humans have been making glass from silicon dioxide since prehistory. Industrialization brought us boron-based glasses, polymer glasses and metallic glasses, but now an international team of researchers has developed a new family of glass based on metals and organic compounds that stacks up to the original silica in glass-forming ability.READ MORE
