TORONTO, ONTARIO–(Marketwire – May 24, 2011) – Arch Biopartners Inc (“Arch” or the “Company”) (CNSX:ACH)(OTC:FOIFF) and its subsidiary Arch Biophysics Ltd today announced that Arch scientists Randall Irvin and Elisabeth Davis will be presenting new data at a conference titled “Charge Transfer in Biosystems” sponsored by the European Science Foundation (“ESF”) and University of Innsbruck (“LFUI”) held July 17-22, 2011 at the Universitätszentrum Obergurgl in Tirol, Austria.
At the ESF conference, Professor Irvin will present an oral presentation titled “Spontaneous Modulation of the Electronic State of Stainless Steel via a Novel Synthetic Bio-metallic Interface” which will highlight new bioelectrical properties relating to Arch Biophysics’ core technology (binding proprietary peptides to non-biological solid surfaces). Ms. Davis will be presenting a related poster at the conference
This new data is in addition to the findings disclosed in the recent article published by Davis, Li and Irvin in the journal Biomaterials showing that Arch Biophysics’ novel synthetic peptides increase the hardness and resistance to corrosion of stainless steel.
