Applied Nanoscience Comments on Trading Activity and Share Volume

Published: Apr 28, 2009

CARLSBAD, CA--(Marketwire - April 28, 2009) -

Applied Nanoscience Inc. (ANI) (PINKSHEETS: APNN), a nanotechnology-based filtration development company, today commented that the unusually heavy share volume and active trading in its stock yesterday is likely tied to the current swine flu outbreak. More specifically, the potential applicability of the company's core technology, NanoFense™, a proprietary antimicrobial nanoparticle formulation developed by ANI to coat or impregnate virtually any air filter media could be viewed as an advantageous product enhancement by air filtration companies.

ANI's NanoFense formulation has already been validated at well-known BSL-3 laboratories to be highly effective against the avian influenza simulant strain H9N2, the Human Influenza A virus as well as Haemophilus influenzae (H-flu). According to an independent virologist familiar with the technology and past testing, it is highly probable that the NanoFense formulation will be similarly effective against the current swine influenza strain A/H1N1.
