ESP KTN Guide raises profile of UK bio-sensing companies

In March 2011, ESP KTN published a guide to UK companies involved in biosensors and bio-sensing. This guide, which is freely available via _connect, provides information on 86 UK companies involved in research, design, development and manufacture of biosensors and bio-sensing devices, instruments and systems – including providers of specialised technical services for this area. Its purpose is to help organisations looking for UK companies with particular skills, products, technologies and capabilities in this field more easily identify such companies, helping them to initiate activities such as exploiting intellectual property, getting access to specialised skills or facilities and finding partners for commercial ventures or technical collaborations.

In the first 6 weeks since publication the guide was supplied on request to 65 organisations.
