MICRA brings together the technology transfer offices of eight leading Midlands Universities in a programme which is building the largest formal collaboration between TTOs in the UK. MICRA is showcasing two spin-outs at Lab Innovations.
Humane Technologies' MicrobeMeter is a simple, robust photometer with continuous data-logging capability built using 3D-printing and open-source Arduino platform. MicrobeMeter allows easier experimentation for biotechnology, microbiology, and synthetic biology laboratories and enables hands-on training programs for undergraduate teaching.
Cytecom's portable bacteria detection device offers faster diagnostics - a new technology for detecting bacteria in minutes instead of waiting for lab-test results which can take days.
Loughborough University is showcasing 2 new technologies invented by world leading researchers. One technology enables robust, systematic and cost-effective droplet generation and the other technology involves in rapid materials characterisation of particles in liquid medium.
