Newsletter 17 February

Welcome to this week's newsletter from Zimmer and Peacock.  This newsletter is a mixture of news, stories and tech notes from Zimmer and Peacock.  If you want to subscribe to our newsletter or have any questions regarding Zimmer and Peacock and our passion for biosensor technologies please don't hesitate to contact us.

The 'Fast Tracking Medical Diagnostics and Biosensor Technologies to the Market' Workshop


On 10 May Zimmer and Peacock will be hosting a workshop in Munich. In this workshop and live demonstration Zimmer and Peacock will discuss and demonstrate their strategy of fast tracking their collaborator's Biosensor and Medical Diagnostic technologies to market.


The Workshop is intended for everyone interested in Medical Diagnostics and Biosensors, and critically are interested in commercialising their technology.


The Workshop focuses on the products and services that reflect the philosophy at Zimmer and Peacock; that engagement with Zimmer and Peacock is a critical step along the road to commercialisation. To find out more please visit our website.



Scaling up the manufacture of sensors and medical diagnostic assays


In the video below, Zimmer and Peacock discuss that the manufacturing of a biosensor, sensor or medical diagnostic can be scaled based on the true volumes of sales. We also address a common question regarding which solvents are 'good' solvents for us to manufacture with.



The team at the Breath Analysis Summit in Garmen-Partenkirchen


At the beginning of the week a number of the Zimmer and Peacock team were in Garmen-Partenkirchen for brainstorming and training around detecting analytes on the breath.

Second day of the Breath Analysis Summit 


Zimmer and Peacock spent their Valentine's Day in the German Alps to allow our analytes on the breath team to plan, strategise and problem solve. The German Alps also provides the clean fresh high altitude air for comparing our technology's performance at high altitude to its performance at sea level within the city environment. 

Impedance and resistance measurements in biological detection


In many biosensor and sensor applications the measurement of impedance/conductance/resistance is often a way of generating signals for biological events, be it: blood coagulation, endotoxin detection, label free immunoassays, hydration detection etc.


Zimmer and Peacock has a number of technologies which accelerate the development of these assays, including:


1) A spiral electrode which offers a long electrode length in a compact spiral.


2) Test jigs so that samples can be brought to sensors in a reproducible manner.


3) Handheld impedance spectrometers for the generation of the biological event signal.

Advanced Treatments and Technologies for Diabetes 


Zimmer and Peacock visited the ATTD this week (15 and 16 Feb) to chat with our partners and clients on their technology needs from sensors to apps. Thanks to everyone who came to speak with us. If you would like to find out more please visit our website

Digital printing of biosensors 


Zimmer and Peacock have just installed their latest biosensor printer. The latest biosensor has been commissioned and has been immediately put to work on our client's products. Click to find out more about Zimmer and Peacock's manufacturing services focused on biosensors and medical diagnostics.
