Midlands Medictech company Medherant in partnership to develop multiple new products with tech developed at University of Warwick

Midlands Medictech company Medherant has just this month (May 2020) signed a  partnership agreement with Cambridge based Cycle Pharmaceuticals to develop multiple new products using Medherant technology developed by University of Warwick chemistry researchers. Coventry based Medherant’s TEPI Patch® Technology uses transdermal delivery technology (a patch that can simply be applied to the skin) and medicines for rare diseases combine to deliver significant quality-of-life benefits for patients.


New STM technique with super sharp frozen carbon monoxide needle points way to new and purer pharmaceuticals

Using a carbon monoxide tipped super sharp needle frozen to 7 Kelvin (minus 266 degrees centigrade), researchers at the University of Warwick can identify whether bonds are hydrogen or halogen, and are also able to pick up minute defects in these materials. These results could be of high relevance to help creating new pharmaceuticals that are purer than ever.
