Newsletter December 22

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.

Zimmer and Peacock Birmingham


At Zimmer and Peacock we are committed to developing and manufacturing electrochemical sensors and biosensors for our partners and collaborators with sites in the USA, UK and Norway.


In this image our talented scientists in Birmingham were busy completing a sensor programme before the vacation break.


If you are looking for a committed electrochemistry team to develop and/or manufacture your biosensor or medical diagnostic please don't hesitate to contact us.

Quality from Zimmer and Peacock


At Zimmer and Peacock we are all about manufacturing the very best electrochemical sensors we can produce be it by sputtingering, screen printing or digital printing. 


Our commitment to quality is institutional but it also starts with the individual. In this picture we have Ni who's skill in hand making small runs of reproducible biosensors leaves one thinking they were made by a robot.

Zimmer and Peacock and The Compton Group


Zimmer and Peacock are committed to the idea of taking the inventions of our academic partners and translating them into innovative and commercially viable products.


As part of the strong and successful ties with The Compton Group at Oxford University we were delighted to attend this year's Compton Group Christmas meal.


Thank you to everyone who made ZP feel so welcome. We are often asked what makes for a successful translation of technology from a University to the market place and we say personal relationships and trust.


If you have a electrochemical sensor or biosensor idea and technology and you are looking for a commercialisation partner please don't hesitate to contact us.

Getting rid of electrical noise in a biosensor


At Zimmer and Peacock we are all about developing and manufacturing electrochemical biosensors and medical diagnostics.


In the adjacent image we show how simple it is to removed electrical noise from a biosensor; in the image we show a before and after image of a sensor raw signal. The before image is with inadequate electrical shielding of the biosensor, whilst the after image is with the correct electrical shielding of the biosensor.


At ZP we know that it is important to have the cleanest possible signal from your sensor application and so we design safeguards in place without you asking.

Zimmer and Peacock team member published in Biosensors and Bioelectronics on the detection of breast cancer detection!


Recently our technical sales manager Pavel Zhurauski had a scientific publication regarding the work he performed during a Marie-Curie International Training Network PROSENSE.


In this paper we report the development of a simple and powerful capacitive aptasensor for the detection and quantification of human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2), which is a biomarker for breast cancer, in undiluted serum. Visit our website here to find out more.
