Malvern's Zetasizer Nano Helps Secure 5th Queens Award

Sir Michael Brinton, the Lord Lieutenant* of Worcestershire, today formally presented the 2010 Queen's Award for Enterprise in Innovation to materials characterization company Malvern Panalytical in a ceremony held at its UK headquarters and attended by employees from all parts of the organisation. This is Malvern Panalytical's fifth Queen's Award and this year recognises the company's continuous development of its market-leading Zetasizer Nano particle characterization systems.

Sir Michael made the presentation following a tour of Malvern Panalytical's facility during which he talked with people across the company, from manufacturing on the shop floor right through to the boardroom.

Accepting the 2010 Queen's Award, Malvern Panalytical's Managing Director Paul Walker told the audience how proud he is of the achievements of the whole company. "Malvern Panalytical was established some forty years ago to commercialise a technological innovation, and while we have come a long way since then in building a global and more diversified business, we have certainly not forgotten our roots," he said. "I believe that winning this award, specifically for innovation, pays great tribute to the vision, knowledge, expertise and sheer hard work of individuals and teams within our company. However, it's not only a tribute to those with the technology know-how, but also to everyone in the wider organisation whose individual contribution is vital to Malvern Panalytical's success."

Malvern Panalytical is a global company that delivers materials characterization systems, support and expertise. The Zetasizer Nano exemplifies how Malvern Panalytical scientists and engineers understand the needs of their customers and make highly sophisticated technology accessible to users from different backgrounds and having varying levels of expertise. Automation and software-driven measurement make the Zetasizer Nano a system that is universally easy to use, and one that is essential in many projects from cutting-edge drug discovery to routine quality control.
