Bio Nano Consulting Win Another International Commercial Contract

Published on March 16, 2009 at 6:37 PM

The specialist product development consultancy, Bio Nano Consulting (BNC) is pleased to announce that it has won another international commercial contract.

Its specialist skills and equipment have now been called upon by a world-leading electronics company for the analysis of thin-film transistors (TFTs). This project is BNC's first to focus on microelectronic characterisation, reflecting the vast capabilities and flexibility of the company.

As computer chips become smaller and more advanced, identifying potential problems before they arise has become of great importance. As such, this project aims to identify underlying metastability issues in metal oxide semiconductor TFTs, which can result in serious computing and digital hardware problems.

Bio Nano Consulting's balance of skills and equipment enable it to address real-world problems with nanotechnology-based solutions. "BNC addresses technical problems utilizing world class technology and expertise. With access to some of the foremost researchers and most advanced equipment at the London Centre for Nanotechnology at the University College London, BNC possesses the skills required to drive forward nanotechnology research and development across a broad range of industries" said Dr David Sarphie, BNC's CEO. "With our traditional focus being in the pharmaceutical, biotech, medical technology and healthcare arenas, we are particularly thrilled that we have now been able to extend our unique service offering to the field of consumer microelectronics."

The BNC is a specialist research and development consultancy operating in the convergent field of bionanotechnology. A joint venture of Imperial College London and University College London, the BNC is funded through the Technology Strategy Board (TSB) with additional support from the London Development Agency (LDA).

Along with its partner organisation, the National Physical Laboratory, the BNC offers a service to the biomedical and healthcare industries in microsystems and nanotechnology. This encompasses design, 3-D modelling and visualisation, rapid prototyping, and characterisation.
