Product development under the microscope?
The Sorby Nano Investigation Centre can help
With the development of advanced microscopes and techniques, the commercial and research sectors are progressively able to see and manipulate at the nano scale.
By understanding the properties of materials, nanotechnology offers a novel approach to product development and opens fresh opportunities for competitive advantage.
Co-located with the Kroto Innovation Centre at the University’s North Campus, the recently opened Sorby Nano Investigation Centre provides companies with access to the most powerful microscopes and leading experts in nanotechnology.
Using the latest equipment, companies are able to analyse the most demanding samples, from advanced materials to biological specimens.
Sheffield based Catal International has benefitted from working with the Centre, where experts have been helping to develop Catal’s catalytic products and services.
Andrew Holt, Managing Director of Catal (www.catal.co.uk) said: “By working with the Sorby Nano Investigation Centre, Catal International has been able to improve our end products and services to our expanding market place, including our strong customer base in Asia”.
