Moortec has developed temperature-sensitive microchips for use in televisions and mobile phones Interactive Scientific developed Nano Sandbox, a software platform that can create visual scientific simulations for the classroom and laboratory Adaptimmune was awarded £2.1 million through the Biomedical Catalyst Fund, managed by Innovate UK and the Medical Research Council, to aid the development of the company’s T-cell therapy to combat triple-negative breast cancer Thang Vo-Ta, co-founder of Callaly, told Innovate UK: Saturn Bioponics received support from Innovate UK to develop a prototype and commercial model of its Saturn Grower, a vertical crop growing hydroponic system See more success stories of companies supported by Innovate UK.

Game Changer: Bethany Koby, Tech Will Save Uscenter_img Case Study: Reach Robotics Callaly developed the Tampliner design, which combines a tampon and pantyliner to prevent period leaks. Callaly received a £1 million loan from Innovate UK to scale up production, and the Tampliner won the Inda Hygienix conference award It’s a real privilege to be recognised in the Sunday Times’ annual Maserati 100 list. I’m humbled to be included with so many other great names, all leading their teams to disrupt industries with new innovations. For us, the recognition is extra meaningful because it helps bring attention to an industry that has suffered from a lack of worthwhile innovation for decades, in part because of the taboo around menstruation. Our Tampliner gives people with periods a new, better choice that solves some of the problems of traditional products. It’s been 80 years since the first tampon was invented so it’s long overdue a redesign!

Enormous challenges at Carr’s

first_imgCarr’s Group has faced “enormous challenges as a result of the flooding”, the company’s first-quarter trading update has confirmed. Severe flooding in Cumbria has affected one of the food and farming conglomerate’s major customers, believed to be Carlisle-based United Biscuits (UB), which was flooded by over a metre of water in the wake of Storm Desmond. The factory in Church Street, Caldewgate produces a range of McVitie’s biscuits and employs 600 people.The amount of flour the customer in question requires from Carr’s has been directly affected, but as the milling group hasinsurance in place, no notable financial impact is anticipated.Chief executive Tim Davies said: “Despite the direct impact of the floods… the speed of our recovery owes much to the resilience and tenacity of our employees.”High hopes for a bright futureThe group’s financial position remains strong – net debt as at 28 November 2015 was £31.9m, compared to £30.4m as at 29 November 2014 and £24.4m as at 28 August 2015. The group continues to trade in line with the board’s expectations for the year.However it added that shopping habits have also had a significant effect, and the retailers’ response has led to margin pressure in the supply chain, putting further pressure on the business.last_img read more
