Default "invention" and "technology" in the same sentence

I would like to make three sentences with "invention" and "technology".

(A) The invention is made, utilizing a new technology.

(B) The invention is made by the application of a new technology.

(C) The invention is made with the use of a new technology.

May I ask two questions about the sentences?

(1) Is the verb, utilizing, in (A) the right word?

(2) Which sentence(s) is/are grammatically correct?

Thank you very much.

Sorry - wrong question. The mistake here is the use of the verb "make" - you can't "make" an invention.

Your sentences should be :

(A) The invention utilises a new technology.

(B) -

(C) The invention uses a new technology.
