May 1, 2007 — NanoInk, Inc., has reached a distribution agreement with Schmidt Scientific of Taiwan and China, to become the exclusive distributor for NanoInk’s NSCRIPTOR Dip Pen Nanolithography (DPN) System in China, Taiwan, Hong Kong and Macao.
NanoInk specializes in nanometer-scale manufacturing and applications development for the life science and semiconductor industries. The company’s NSCRIPTOR DPN System is an integrated hardware and software system designed for the DPN process of writing stable nanoscale patterns of molecular “ink” onto a sample substrate via a coated stylus tip. DPN users can build at resolutions ranging from many micrometers down to 15 nanometers, using virtually any material. This makes for numerous commercial applications.
“Schmidt Scientific’s visibility and presence in the Nanotechnology markets in China and Taiwan will accelerate the adoption of our DPN technology in Asia,” said Tom Levesque, Senior Director of DPN Global Sales. “Our technology is already in use at several prominent universities in the region, and we see it migrating into industrial development as a general purpose nanofabrication tool with a low cost and a small desktop footprint.”
