Tampa, Fla. (October 26, 2005) - Nanobac Life Sciences, Inc. (OTCBB: NNBP) (“Nanobac” or “the Company”) announced today the introduction of two new versions of its NANOCAPTURE™ and NANO-SERO™ ELISA test kits for the detection of Calcifying Nano-Particles (CNPs), also known as nanobacteria, in serum or plasma. The new kits offer improved sensitivity, lower background and improved stability over the previous versions. Nanobac has added new standards to improve precision at the low end and freeze dried the critical components for improved stability.
“Our demand for CNP diagnostic products is increasing as CNP’s or nanobacteria are implicated in more and more chronic diseases,” stated Grant Carlson, Nanobac’s President and Chief Operating Officer. “Nanobac has worked hard to develop robust, sensitive and reproducible ELISA test kits for the CNP/nanobacteria research community. These kits are CE marked and ready for immediate shipment throughout the European Union. In the United States the kits will be sold For Research Use Only (RUO).”
The NANOCAPTURE ELISA is a two-site immunoenzymatic assay for the quantitative measurement of CNP/nanobacterial antigen in serum or plasma. The NANO-SERO ELISA is also a two site immunoenzymatic assay for the quantitative measurement of anti-CNP antibodies in serum or plasma. Nanobac will feature the NANOCAPTURE and NANO-SERO ELISA test kits at the world’s #1 medical trade show, MEDICA, in Dusseldorf, Germany, November 16-19, 2005. Last year the show attracted 136,000 visitors from around the world. Nanobac intends to meet with potential customers and establish its global network of in vitro diagnostic distributors.
