Biosensor Materials and Methods – U.S. Patent

Hervé Jacquiau, J.D., Ph.D., M.Sc., D.E.A.

Hervé Jacquiau, Ph.D. is a co-inventor and U.S. Patent holder for Biosensor Materials and Methods (#6,849,442), which discloses the methods for generating mycolic acid bacterial biosensors for particular analytes (especially industrial pollutants) by the use of innovative methods for isolating DNA encoding an inducible promoter.

Hervé Jacquiau, Ph.D., assists in all aspects of patent practice, including patent prosecution and litigation. His background covers a variety of technologies, particularly biotechnology, bioengineering, biochemistry, molecular biology and microbiology. Hervé received his Ph.D. degree from the University of Cambridge after investigating the genetic and biochemical features responsible for the biodegradation of toxic pollutants. During the course of this work, he developed novel genetic tools to identify the specific nature of chromosomal DNA mutations and became co-inventor on a U.S. patent.
