Xenicent Inc. is developing a "lab on a chip" technology for commercial testing applications within the food packing and veterinary industries. The lab-on-a-chip technology is expected to perform mobile laboratory functions in real-time on a microchip platform the size of a shirt button, enabling users to receive laboratory data without time delay. The company is also negotiating licensing agreements with a U.S. national laboratory for use of IP relevant to the lab-on-a-chip technology.

Expected to be available in the second half of this year, the technology is aimed at bringing a new definition and standard of quality control testing in the food packing and veterinary industries. It is also expected to assist in identifying the impact of infection, disease and bioterrorism on the public food supply in a 'real-time' platform.

"Recent advances in microchip manufacturing have resulted in the reproducible and economic combination of microelectronics with micro analytical methodology. We are attempting to tap into a market that analysts believe is currently in excess of $5 billion," said Xenicent President Duane Bennett.
