The collaboration will spur significant investment and job creation, including a $3 million capital investment by Graphene Frontiers at the Albany Nanotech Complex and 27 new jobs.

“A partner like the State University of New York’s College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering will rapidly accelerate our development efforts,” Graphene Frontiers CEO Mike Patterson said. “We look forward to sharing our vetted knowledge and resources, as well as exposing ourselves to key stakeholders who can further our company vision.”

The partnership will leverage Graphene Frontiers’ graphene growth technique with CNSE’s process integration, development, and analysis capabilities to establish 300mm fabrication processes for production of the company’s graphene biosensor. Among graphene’s many applications are advanced chemicals and biosensors, where the material offers distinct advantages in medical diagnostics and environmental monitoring.
