Zeno of Citium was a Greek thinker from Citium , Cyprus. He was possibly of Phoenician descent,. Zeno was the founder of the Stoic school of philosophy, which he taught in Athens from about 300 BC. Based on the moral ideas of the Cynics, Stoicism laid great emphasis on goodness and peace of mind gained from living a life of Virtue in accordance with Nature. It proved very successful, and flourished as the dominant philosophy from the Hellenistic period through to the Roman era. Wikipedia.

VALENCIA, SPAIN--(Marketwired - Feb 22, 2017) - Zenosense, Inc. ( : ZENO) ("Zenosense", the "Company"), a healthcare technology company primarily focused on the development and commercialization of MIDS Cardiac™, a Point of Care ("POC") handheld device for the early detection of certain cardiac event biomarkers to significantly accelerate the triage, diagnosis, treatment and disposition of patients reporting chest pain and with suspected acute myocardial infarction (heart attack), is pleased to announce that MIDS Medical Limited ("MML"), our joint venture based at Sci-Tech, Daresbury, has completed construction of two bench readers designed to test two methods of magnetic nanoparticle detection. Following an initial bench rig evaluation phase in Q4, 2016 MML has designed and constructed two types of rigs to test its two related nano-magnetic detection systems; these rigs are designed to gather preliminary, definitive quantitative data under highly controlled conditions. Priority testing has now commenced on the first of these rigs, a second iteration design designed to simulate MML's "Lab-on-Chip" detection method, whereby nanoparticles are dosed into wells on a "Test Slide" and located highly accurately in very close proximity to Hall effect magnetic sensors. This patented design is envisaged to be embodied in a commercial test strip where the Hall sensors will be integrated in a disposable test strip, the Hall sensors then being permanently and accurately located. Testing is designed to methodically measure the detective ability of the MIDS system: Firstly, pure Magnetite nanoparticles in the sub-200 nanometer to 1 micrometer range are being tested. These particles are dosed in liquid suspension into the test slide wells in defined multi-nanolitre sized volumes. MML subsequently plans to test modern composite magnetic beads in the 1 to 3 micrometer range, such as those used in high sensitivity troponin assays. Initial testing of very small volumes of very small pure Magnetite nanoparticles has already produced encouraging results, with relatively large and clean detective signals being recorded. Based on these first results, MML expects it will be able to similarly detect magnetic beads which may have a lower magnetic signal density but higher individual volumes. MML expects refinements will be made to this simulation rig, to further improve reproducibility of results and to better inform design, prior to the production of a prototype Lab-on-Chip test strip. A round of testing to a similar protocol is also planned on the second rig. This is a first iteration construction designed to explore the viability of a "Magnetic Bridge" structure for which MML submitted a patent application on January 19, 2017. We believe that, in addition to cardiac markers, the MIDS technology platform can be applied across a wide spectrum of diagnostic tests. Proof of detection is the first step in applying the MIDS technology to cardiac markers and other immunoassay tests. The Company believes there is an enormous potential market for highly accurate cardiac marker assays conducted by a hand held device at the POC. The Company's target is to develop a hand-held device which can achieve Gold Standard laboratory accuracy or better, with results delivered at the POC within minutes. About Zenosense, Inc. Zenosense Inc.'s primary focus, through our joint venture ownership in MIDS Medical Ltd., is the development of a cost-effective, hand-held Point of Care rapid cardiac diagnostic device, MIDS Cardiac™, and is also the holder of an exclusive global license agreement to develop and market effective medical devices for use in hospitals and primary healthcare settings targeting the early detection of both deadly bacteria and certain cancers in the exhaled breath of patients.

VALENCIA, SPAIN--(Marketwired - Oct 31, 2016) - Zenosense, Inc. ( : ZENO) ("Zenosense", the "Company"), a healthcare technology company primarily focused on the development and commercialization of MIDS Cardiac™, a Point of Care ("POC") handheld device for the early detection of certain cardiac event biomarkers to significantly accelerate the triage, diagnosis, treatment and disposition of patients reporting chest pain and with suspected acute myocardial infarction ("heart attack"), here provides an update on the bench reader development. MIDS Medical Limited ("MML"), our 40% joint venture based at Sci-Tech, Daresbury, UK has provided the Company with a report on progress of the development of MIDS Cardiac™, the first development of MIDS, a POC technology intended to deliver medical laboratory analyser accuracy in a hand held device around the size of a smartphone. The patented MIDS technology works by detecting the magnetic signature of magnetic immunoassay nanoparticles, rather than most conventional technologies which typically optically detect a colorimetric signal, often photo luminescent, from those particles. MML and the Company believe that the MIDS nano magnetic detection system can be applied to a wide range of diagnostic immunoassay tests. This is expected to deliver far higher levels of sensitivity and accuracy at the POC, with the added advantages of a fully automated test from a small finger prick blood sample. MIDS Cardiac is aimed, in the first instance, at POC high sensitivity ("HS") troponin tests to diagnose heart attack at an early stage, or the absence of that event. Phase 1 of the MIDS Cardiac development is intended to produce a bench reader system to prove the principle of detection and to enable the development of a "lab-on-chip" test strip. MML reports that electronics design of the first iteration of the bench reader is complete, and that a printed circuit board to that design has been produced and populated with the testing components. This includes highly sensitive "Hall Effect" sensors, a magnetic field induction system and the amplification and noise reduction elements, necessary to detect the nano magnetic signatures of the target assay particles. Initial testing is expected to commence shortly. The results are expected to inform MML as to the design of a second iteration bench reader which is intended to refine the electronics, sensor positioning and physical magnetic systems prior to a more extensive phase of testing. Zenosense Inc.'s primary focus, through our joint venture ownership in MIDS Medical Ltd., is the development of a cost-effective, hand-held Point of Care rapid cardiac diagnostic device, MIDS Cardiac™, and is also the holder of an exclusive global license agreement to develop and market effective medical devices for use in hospitals and primary healthcare settings targeting the early detection of both deadly bacteria and certain cancers in the exhaled breath of patients.

This Small Business Innovation Research Phase II project seeks to continue the development of a novel one-transistor memory device, which has both volatile and non-volatile functionality, through collaboration with a commercial foundry partner. Such memory combines the non-volatile memory's ability to retain information in the absence of power (such as Flash memory) and the fast access speed and reliability of a volatile memory (such as Static Random Access Memory (SRAM)). In addition to the memory cell development and optimization, a memory block will also be developed to initiate commercialization effort of the memory technology. The broader impact/commercial potential of this project is to enable power-efficient computing applications and mobile devices. For example, it can be used to reduce power consumptions in data centers. Data centers' annual energy consumption is estimated to be 150 billion kWh, about twice the capacity of the current US solar panel. A power-efficient memory such as the one proposed in this proposal can reduce the overall data centers' power consumption by up to 75%. Another application is to provide an integrated memory solution. Many electronic devices currently employ multiple types of memory, due to their own distinct characteristics. The proposed device will be able to combine the different types of memory into a single memory device, simplifying the manufacturing process for embedded memories.
