GOLDEN, Colo., March 11 The U.S. Patent Office has awardedDr. George Radziszewski a U.S. Patent (No. 7,342,664) for his revolutionaryChemiD Mini Lab, a miniature device that will identify chemical compounds ondemand.

The ChemiD Mini Lab is designed to meet the critical need for aninexpensive, miniaturized analytical tool capable of rapidly and accuratelydetecting, identifying and monitoring the concentration of chemicalsubstances.

The ChemiD Mini Lab is a novel configuration of a Fourier TransformInfrared (FTIR) spectrometer for spectrochemical analysis. FTIR is aninstrument that can detect and decipher the molecular "fingerprint" of anychemical compound. Current FTIR technology is large, cumbersome andexpensive.

"The ongoing hostilities in the Middle East and threats to homelandsecurity underscore the need for an improved means of identifying explosivesand toxic chemicals, so the market for such a device is enormous," accordingto Dr. Radziszewski, founder and CEO of ChemiD Research, LLC. He goes on tostate, "our device could also contribute to improvements in energy efficiency,indoor/outdoor air quality and heighten the safety and security in millions ofbuildings worldwide." Similarly, the medical community "will benefit from agreatly enhanced potential for conducting non-invasive blood and bodily fluidssampling."

"Imagine every first responder and combat soldier with a handheld,chemical-detecting portable and automatic lab costing less than $500!" saysDr. Radziszewski. The patent culminates years of extensive research. TheChemiD Mini Lab will be the smallest, least expensive and most powerful deviceyet to be introduced. Capable of real-time detection and identification ofexplosives, 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 ofcommercial packaging before units will be available.

With his device, Dr. Radziszewski envisions contribution to an improvedquality of life, as consumers are able to determine potentially hazardouschemicals in their food and environment or perform non-invasive blood lab workas easily as they use a watch to tell time or read a thermometer to determinethe temperature.
