"We are delighted to have raised GBP 381,372 in these difficult economic conditions. It shows the continued
support we have from our investors for our future plans. The proceeds are to be used to for working capital
to meet the company's needs as demand for its air analysis instruments and associated consumables continue
to grow.  The company has made significant progress this year in placing its Galley Sampler product to blue
chip customers and now has a growing order book for its real time air analyser which was launched last
year.  Our new dip strip product  range for rapid and cost effective enzyme analysis within the workplace
has progressed through customer trials and will  reduce the  need  for  costly  and lengthy laboratory
analysis of industrial enzymes which pose  health  risks  to employees  working  in  the  detergent,
brewing, bakeries and biotechnology industries.

ANTnano is based in Sedgefield, U.K., and Singapore.
