BioForce Nanosciences, Inc. (BFNH.OB) develops and commercializes nanotechnology tools and applications for the life sciences. The company is based in Ames, Iowa, and has two divisions--instruments and applications. The instrument division includes the Nano eNabler system and associated consumables (SPT print cartridges and Sindex substrates) and a surface decontamination device known as the ProCleaner. The applications division develops Nano eNabler-based applications for a variety of purposes. The current application pipeline includes the patented ViriChip pathogen detection and identification system, the Chip-On-A-Tip ultraminiaturized cancer biomarker detection system and a proprietary method for high-throughput molecular interaction screening known as FAST. The unique capabilities of the Nano eNabler system allow the creation of novel applications that take advantage of vastly reduced spatial scales and sample volumes. Popular applications of the Nano eNabler system include: functionalizing biosensors, including micro-electromechanical systems/nano-electromechanical systems devices; patterning surfaces with molecules to study cell growth, behavior and differentiation; performing ultrasensitive bioassays; and printing arrays in confined spaces in microfluidic devices.
