NEOMECS WINS MEDICAL RESEARCH GRANT FROM NATIONAL INSTITUTES OF HEALTH
 MINNEAPOLIS, Oct. 14 /PRNewswire/ -- NeoMecs Inc., Minneapolis, announced that it has received a grant from the National Institute of General Medical Sciences, a division of the National Institutes of Health, for research to increase the sensitivity of DNA probes for diagnostics. The $50,000 grant is awarded under the federal Small Business Innovation Research Program (SBIR).
 The research will be conducted jointly with Nichols Institute, San Juan Capistrano, Calif., which will provide consultant services and technical apparatus. The project will apply the plasma polymerization technology of NeoMecs, which is used for surface modification, to the chemiluminescence technology of Nichols Institute, which uses light measurement for diagnostics.
 Primary project research will be conducted by NeoMecs. Frank McCapra, Ph.D., academic associate of Nichols Institute, will direct the DNA probe experiments and function as chief consultant for the project. Additional technical support will be provided by the Center for Interfacial Engineering at the University of Minnesota.
 "We are very enthusiastic about the application of our surface modification technology to the diagnostics field," said Hiroshi Nomura, Ph.D., president and founder of NeoMecs. "We see this DNA research as the opening of a door to many other kinds of medical research."
 NeoMecs Inc., which is privately held, was founded in 1989 to commercialize plasma polymerization technologies. NeoMecs provides a specialized surface modification service to industry, and is developing membrane products for the environmental, medical and biotechnology markets.
