Newsletter July 27

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.

ZP at CamBridgeSens


Zimmer and Peacock are keen supporters of Cambridge University's Sensors Research and so we are delighted to be attending Sensors Day 2018 for the second year running.

Electrochemical Methods in Corrosion Research 2018


Zimmer and Peacock were delighted to attend the Electrochemical Methods in Corrosion Research 2018.


We discussed two main themes:


1) Zahner instrumentation for corrosion research.


2) The translation of corrosion research into products.

Corrosion at Zimmer and Peacock


At Zimmer and Peacock we are 100% pragmatic and we understand that corrosion is multi-faceted problem and though we can inhibit corrosion one can never say that corrosion will ever go away.


At Zimmer and Peacock we support our clients and collaborators in three ways:


1) Fundamental Research and Characterization - ZP support the academic and industrial community by the supply and support of the EIS systems from Zahner. 


2) The provision of chemical sensors for corrosion environmental monitoring.


3) The ZP ability to reduce potentiostat systems down to low cost potentiostats.

Oxford University senses spicy deal with Zimmer and Peacock


Oxford University Innovation licenses sensors for garlic, ginger and turmeric to Zimmer and Peacock.


Handheld devices which can accurately detect and quantify the levels of garlic, ginger and turmeric in foodstuffs form the basis of a new licensing deal between Oxford University Innovation (OUI), the research commercialisation arm of Oxford University, and electrochemical sensor manufacturer Zimmer and Peacock (ZP).


The sensors were developed by Professor Richard Compton and his team at the Compton Group in the Oxford University Department of Chemistry, which also developed calibration free pH measurement. The palm-sized devices utilise electrochemical sensing to analyse a liquid sample much the same way a diabetic monitor blood sugar and delivers results to a smartphone or other display in less than a minute.


The Compton Group and ZP deal builds on a pre-existing relationship following the prior licensing of ChilliPot, a sensor which provides an accurate measurement of a chilli’s spiciness.

ZP attending University of Bath's C3Bio Inaugral Event


Zimmer and Peacock is attending the Inaugural event of the Centre for Biosensors, Bioelectronics and Biodevices (C3Bio) at the University of Bath on the 7th September 2018.


C3Bio is a new multidisciplinary research centre with over 70 members (15 core academics, 18 affiliated academics, ~10 postdocs, ~30 PhD students), bringing together a critical mass of researchers from engineering, physical, life and social sciences working on different aspects of biosensors (sensing elements and techniques), bioelectronics (electrophysiology and bioelectronic circuits) and biodevices (device co-design and integration).

Zimmer and Peacock speaking at Cambridge University


Zimmer and Peacock are delighted to be invited to speak at cambridge University to the Cambridge CDT course.


Zimmer and Peacock will be talking about what it takes to commercialize electrochemical sensors and biosensors.


Johnson Matthey Lecture Theatre (Lecture Theatre 2) at the Department of Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology for the lecture at 11.30am on 27 September 2018.


ZP Wearable Biosensor Pack starts shipping


The ZP wearable biosensor pack starts to ship.


At Zimmer and Peacock we see that wearable sensors are the future, but there is a distinct lack of wearable biosensors and applications, that is why ZP has started to ship its wearable biosensor pack to customers and clients.



Zimmer and Peacock are delighted to be attending the ICAPHP in Bali this August.


Zimmer and Peacock will be presenting their ChilliSensor and talking about what it takes to develop, manufacture and commercialise a sensor for food and agricultural purposes.


ZP at the BMA


Zimmer and Peacock were delighted to be invited to a Cancer UK's event for tackling early prognostics in cancer. The event was held at the BMA in London.


Zimmer and Peacock is the UK's biggest independent contract developer and manufacturer of IVD and in-vivo sensors for monitoring human health
