Potentiometric microplate reading system
Universal Sensors have designed a ground breaking potentiometric biosensor reader for microplates and needed a partner to re-layout the electronics, take through EMC for laboratory CE standards and manufacture a product that could be ramped up in volume.
Control of temperature in industrial inkjet print heads for research and production systems.
Homogenisation of soil and clay samples in preparation for environmental analysis of poly aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs). The system had to loosen complex clay samples and allow pre-analytical extraction of PAH’s.
Petrochemical and oil testing
A range of 20 instruments for testing lubricating oils and petrochemicals including Reid vapour pressure, pour point, cold filter plugging point, oxidisation, corrosion and foaming baths, together with a Norma Hoffman bath and evaporation cell.
To develop a test bed to study the hysteresis in engine thermostats and to produce a batch production quality control system to check that the thermostats manufactured always open and close at the required temperature.
Filtration in salt water at sub-ambient temperatures.
Aircraft head-up display manufacture
THALES Optics, specialises in the design, development and manufacture of electro-optical systems, sub-systems, modules and components to meet the needs of defence, aerospace, civil, industrial and space markets around the world.
Ultra high precision lithography temperature control
Leica in Cambridge market electron beam systems for wafer fabrication and approached Grant to replace a temperature control system used in the focusing coils of a state of the art hi resolution system.
