Leading Edge Materials signs LOI with Graphmatech for future graphene production JV in Sweden

Leading Edge Materials has reported the signing of a non-binding Letter of Intent with Swedish company Graphmatech. The LOI defines a pathway to form a binding Joint Venture between the companies to produce graphene at Leading Edge Material's Woxna graphite mine.

Leading Edge Materials and Graphmatech have independently produced graphene as proof of concept from Woxna graphite. Following additional research, the Joint Venture envisages co-investment in the scale up of graphene production using Woxna graphite, to supply both Graphmatech and third parties should surplus material be available. It is anticipated that the Woxna mine site will be the operating location, using proprietary graphite pre-treatment and exfoliation technology from Graphmatech.

Archer Exploration to work on graphene-based biosensors with undisclosed German biotech partner

Archer Exploration logo imageArcher Exploration has announced that it has entered into a legally binding Material Transfer Agreement (“MTA”) with a leading German biotechnology company, regarding Archer’s graphene-based biosensor development activities with The University of Adelaide ARC Graphene Hub.

The Agreement involves the transfer of materials between Archer and the Partner for use in the development of electrochemical biosensors for the semi-quantitative detection of disease state markers. The materials to be used include those held in the inventory of the Partner (e.g. infectious disease antigens, antibodies, disease state sera, coupling and assay reagents) and materials in the inventory of Archer’s wholly owned subsidiary Carbon Allotropes (e.g. graphene, ink formulations, and printed graphene electrodes).
