Biophan is developing technology, using nanomagnetic particle thin film, to make biomedical devices safe, both implanted devices and those used in surgical and diagnostic procedures, and to reduce interference that these devices cause to Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) image quality.
Today, many devices (such as pacemakers and surgical devices) are not used with MRI due to safety concerns involved with the MRI environment, including heating of devices and metal wire leads, which can cause tissue damage and potentially fatal rapid heart beat. Most MRI imaging centers today refuse to allow pacemaker patients, and those with other implanted medical devices, to undergo MRI imaging due to safety problems.
In order to make the most effective use of MRI, in addition to resolving the safety concerns, it is desirable that the device not interfere with the MRI image quality. Our solutions also address this objective.

Cytoplex is a biosensor company, currently marketing cell based assay chips to drug discovery companies, in the area of ion channel drug discovery. There are no adequate testing solutions in drug discovery for Alzheimer, Diabetes, or Muscular Dystrophy and many more diseases. This has prevented drug companies to introduce novel drugs, with the last ion channel drug introduced was over 7 years ago. Cytoplex has come up with a unique microchip solution that can test 100x faster at 10x lower cost to identify novel drugs. Our advantage over what is currently available is novel and unique semiconductor Surface Nanotechnology for ion channel drug discovery which means more precise data and faster drugs to market. Our differentiation is that we engineer surfaces at the nanoscale to enable attachment of biomolecules for ion channel drug discovery, and we are different from all of the DNA microarray, protein microarray companies and other tool companies. Our target market size is $1.4B. Our sales forecast is $80 million in 4 years from now, by direct sales of chips, instruments and services. We have one revenue generating-major client for our chips. Our founder has over 10 years of experience in developing microchips. Our management team consists of a Chief Scientist from Pfizer, who has over 20 years of experience in drug discovery. Our VP Business Development started 3 companies one of which captured $40 million in revenue. Our Board members have experiences ranging from building $200M cell analysis tools business to founding drug discovery companies to successfully launching and merging a company for $23 billion dollars. We have a solid nanotechnology IP, strong market pull, and in order to realize our dream of using Nanotechnology as an enabling technology that will find cures to debilitating diseases, we have the right team.

Eikos, Inc.
www.eikos.com
Transparent conductors are a critical compenent in touch screens, EL lamps, flat panel displays, solar panels, architectural windows, and interactive electronic textiles. The current global market for transparent conductive coatings is >$1 Billion. For the last 40 years, Indium Tin Oxide (ITO) has been the material of choice, with current market share >85%. That is about to change. New demands on cost, quality, and functionality are forcing manufacturers to consider new alternatives.
Eikos, Inc. has developed a transparent conductive ink based on combining novel carbon nanotubes with conventional polymers. THis ink can be continuously applied to plastic films using conventional wet coating methods. Transparent flexible circuits can also be printed directly using gravure, screen, and ink-jet printing techniques. Eikos' transparent conductive ink provides several advantages over the industry standard material, Indium Tin Oxide (ITO), which is brittle (cannot be flexed or folded) and requires very expensive processing equipment (vacuum sputtering and photlithographic etching). Eikos' transparent conductive ink is also the first ITO alternative that offers all of the advantages of conductive polymers without trading off optoelectronic properties and environmental stability.
Eikos initially intends to target the market for touch screens, EL lamps, and large area LCF TV's. The initial market size for these segments is >$300 million and rapidly growing. Yet this is only the beginning. Ultimately, Eikos' technology will also permit the creation of a new generaton of products from thin, flexible displays to wearable invisibile electronics. These applications are not possible with ITO, due to its poor flexibility and its inherently high cost of patterning circuits.
Eikos has filed several fundamental patents to protext its strong position in both transparent conductive coatings and EMI shielding.

Nano Interface Technology, Inc
www.nanointerfacetech.com
Nano Interface Technology, Inc. (NITI) is a pioneering research organization developing novel nanotechnologies in the biotechnology, material sciences and drug delivery areas. One of the major scientific challenges for the material scientists has been the development of a process that can help to control the purity and material properties at the molecular level. NITI has hit upon the holy grail of nano-biomaterials production, where we can synthesize molecules under highly controlled conditions for specific applications in small droplets of the microemulsions. We have developed nano-size (20-50nm) ultra-pure biomaterials - FDA approved biomaterials, which can be used as a coating material for the hip, knee and dental implants. The existing material is not pure at the molecular level and is available in micron-size, which leads to the rejection of the prosthesis. The nano-size of the biomaterials (hydroxyapatite) will provide very high surface area for the bone to bind and its phase purity will prevent the coating from dissolving which leads to loosening of the implants. This will reduce the revision rate of the implants from 17% than 5%. According to our estimates, we can capture a market share of 15% in 5 years, which has an annual revenue potential of $135 - 150 Millions.
