Stoli Catalysts wins RSC and MICRA grants
Work in the new laboratory starts, supported by grants and a Royal Society of Chemistry graduate internship award.
Rapid discovery of natural product medicines and agrochemicals
Erebagen has developed a platform that enables it to engineer soil bacteria to produce new bioactive natural products with hit-rates 20x-better than synthetic chemicals currently being used in industrial screens.
Verdel Instruments – 2D MS technology up to 10x quicker than current methods
Verdel Instruments has developed the first benchtop instrument with two dimensional mass spectrometry (2DMS) capability. It delivers rapid high quality structural analysis and sequencing of every component in a complex mixture, making pharmaceutical research and food safety testing more accurate, more efficient, and up to 10 times quicker than current mass spectrometry approaches. Verdel’s instrument is compatible with any mass spectrometer that uses linear ion trap technology.
Stoli Catalysts - cutting fine chemical manufacturing costs in half
Stoli Catalysts has developed a transformative catalysis technology that will enable the £600 billion Fine Chemicals industry to convert from batch to continuous flow, thereby potentially halving its production costs.
The platform technology of catalyst-coated tube reactors has the potential to revolutionise the market allowing for safer, lower pressure and more efficient manufacturing of perfumes, vitamins, food supplements, pharmaceuticals and other specialist applications in a more cost-effective way.
Humane Technologies - affordable bio-discovery technology for citizen scientists
Humane Technologies has developed innovative and affordable laboratory equipment for life sciences researchers and citizen scientists. Its products are based on accessible technologies such as 3D printing and programmable microprocessors. They are made available as blueprints for self-construction, as do-it-yourself kits, or as ready-to-use devices, expanding access to the tools and technologies which are currently found only within fully-equipped research labs.
