Nanion Receives Bavarian Innovation Award 2005
News Nov 09, 2005
Nanion Technologies GmbH was recently awarded the Bavarian Innovation Award 2005 and is Bavarias Company of the year (small/medium enterprise (SME)).
Nanion received the award for its chip-based patch clamp technique, which allows performing sophisticated electrophysiological measurements from cells in an automated and parallel manner.
Nanions entry level device, the Port-a-Patch©, supersedes the common pipette based patch clamp technique in ease of use and throughput and doesn't require a microscope, vibration isolation or a micromanipulator.
The Port-a-Patch© uses an all electrical read-out for automatically positioning and electrically contacting cells on the chip.
With the Port-a-Patch©, Nanion offers the world’s smallest patch-clamp workstation. This innovative drug discovery technology makes patch clamp available also to non-electrophysiologists.
This innovation and its successful market introduction has been award the prestigious prize, which clearly is an important step and great commendation for Nanion.
3-D Printed Sugar Scaffolds Offer Sweet Solution for Tissue EngineeringNews
University of Illinois engineers built a 3-D printer that offers a sweet solution to making detailed structures that commercial 3-D printers can’t: Rather than a layer-upon-layer solid shell, it produces a delicate network of thin ribbons of hardened isomalt, the type of sugar alcohol used to make throat lozenges.READ MORE
