has struck a deal with Universal Sensors to manufacture its potentiometric biosensor reader. The partnership was initiated by the brokering service offered by the East of England Innovation Relay Centre.
Universal Sensors' 12-channel biosensor uses patented Universal Transducer System (UTS) technology to provide ultra-sensitive detection of contaminants, toxins and disease markers in samples such as serum, blood and urine. It has a detection range of 10 parts/trillion - the equivalent of one drop in 100 Olympic swimming pools - and gives highly accurate results in less than 15 minutes. Potential applications include food quality assurance.
