The European Patent Office has informed our London and US Patent Law firms that our European application for the NanoLogix BNP sandwiched-membrane Petri based detection technology has received an allowance for grant under the European Patent Convention. The patent will cover up to 38 member countries, dependent upon NanoLogix’s election, and significantly enhances the NanoLogix Patent Portfolio. The BNP technology received patent grants in 2013 in both Japan and Russia and is currently patent pending in the United States.
At the American Society for Microbiology (ASM) annual meeting in late May, NanoLogix’s display booth was visited by NASA. Upon viewing the NanoLogix Petri plates vacuum packed in nitrogen-charged FlatPacks, the following comment was made by a NASA scientist: “This is exactly what we’ve been looking for. We’re sending these up there,” referring to the International Space Station (ISS).
In early June, at NASA’s request, NanoLogix supplied NASA with a number of Petri and BNP FlatPacks for their use. The company is currently awaiting further information from NASA and will release additional news as appropriate. The qualities that are of interest to NASA are the robust nature of the Petri dishes packaged in the patented FlatPack with enhanced durability and resistance to breakage, coupled with the long term room-temperature shelf life of at least two years, compared to the competition’s shelf life of 3-1/2 months refrigerated.
NanoLogix is pleased to announce that it is receiving assistance from Tim Ryan, U.S. Representative for Ohio’s 13th Congressional District and his staff in exploring potential Federal government uses for its technologies. NanoLogix management will be traveling to Washington DC in July for meetings with the Congressman and his staff.
