Patent Awarded for Miniature Chemical Detection Device
Wednesday, March 12, 2008
Golden, CO -- The U.S. Patent Office has awarded Dr. George Radziszewski a U.S. Patent (No. 7,342,664) for his revolutionary ChemiD Mini Lab, a miniature device that will identify chemical compounds on demand.
The ChemiD Mini Lab is designed to meet the critical need for an inexpensive, miniaturized analytical tool capable of rapidly and accurately detecting, identifying and monitoring the concentration of chemical substances.
The ChemiD Mini Lab is a novel configuration of a Fourier Transform Infrared (FTIR) spectrometer for spectrochemical analysis. FTIR is an instrument that can detect and decipher the molecular "fingerprint" of any chemical compound. Current FTIR technology is large, cumbersome and expensive.
"The ongoing hostilities in the Middle East and threats to homeland security underscore the need for an improved means of identifying explosives and toxic chemicals, so the market for such a device is enormous," according to Dr. Radziszewski, founder and CEO of ChemiD Research, LLC. He goes on to state, "our device could also contribute to improvements in energy efficiency, indoor/outdoor air quality and heighten the safety and security in millions of buildings worldwide." Similarly, the medical community "will benefit from a greatly enhanced potential for conducting non-invasive blood and bodily fluids sampling."
"Imagine every first responder and combat soldier with a handheld, chemical-detecting portable and automatic lab costing less than $500!" says Dr. Radziszewski. The patent culminates years of extensive research. The ChemiD Mini Lab will be the smallest, least expensive and most powerful device yet to be introduced. Capable of real-time detection and identification of explosives, chemicals, narcotics and other airborne contaminants, Dr. Radziszewski's patent is on its way to a huge commercial success!
Prototype testing will take several months followed by the development of commercial packaging before units will be available.
With his device, Dr. Radziszewski envisions contribution to an improved quality of life, as consumers are able to determine potentially hazardous chemicals in their food and environment or perform non-invasive blood lab work as easily as they use a watch to tell time or read a thermometer to determine the temperature.
ChemiD Research is a Limited Liability Company formed in 2004 in the State of Colorado. (http://www.chemid.com)
