Bio Nano Consulting win the Emerging Technology Award

We would like to congratulate our client Bio Nano Consulting (BNC) for their success in winning the Emerging Technology Award from the Royal Society of Chemistry for their arsenic detector. The Chemistry Means Business event hosted annually by the RSC is for connecting start-ups and SMEs, multinational organisations and academic entrepreneurs from across the UK and Europe.

During the event, the shortlisted entrants for the Emerging Technology Competition pitched their ideas to a panel of judges. The competition aims to accelerate the commercialisation of innovative technologies in a variety of areas, including health, energy & environment, food & drink, and materials & enabling technologies.

Out of the nine companies shortlisted in the Energy & Environment category, the AquAffirm™ arsenic test strips won the award. AquAffirm™ are the first enzyme electrochemistry-based test strips for rapid measurement of arsenic in drinking/irrigation water.
