BioForce gets grant for biothreat system

June 26, 2002 — BioForce Nanosciences Inc. said it received a U.S. government grant for developing a biological threat detection system based on its nanoarray technology.

The $250,000 grant will be used to create sensors for targeted pathogens. Future studies will develop a comprehensive panel to detect several known agents, which can serve to protect the public and military from threats, the company said in a news release.

The Iowa-based firm develops nanoarray technologies for high-throughput analysis of molecular systems. Applications include protein interactions, drug discovery and disease detection.
