Arrowhead licenses Caltech technology

Mar. 10, 2005 — Arrowhead Research Corp. announced that it has exclusively licensed new technology in dip pen nanolithography from the California Institute of Technology.

The company says the licensed technology, for which patent applications have been submitted, relates to the use of dip pen nanolithography to write different biological molecules on previously inaccessible, or difficult to pattern, surfaces. The technology was developed at Caltech in the labs of Professor C. Patrick Collier.

In addition, Arrowhead says it acquired a 12-month option to exclusively license additional patent applications from Caltech covering nanotube-based scanning probes, lipid membrane fabrication, nanotube-based memory devices, and nanotube strain sensors. During the option period, the company says it expects to craft commercialization plans for these technologies.
