Chance discovery has led to successful business

Abstract:
Until Bob Carr's technology was launched, laboratory scientists who wanted to view and analyse individual nanoparticles needed a £250,000 electron microscope and the process took up to four hours

Nanosight's equipment costs £15,000 and does as good a job in just 30 seconds. When microbial biochemist Bob Carr realised that he had discovered a way of viewing tiny virus-sized nanoparticles through an optical microscope, he wasn't initially too sure about its usefulness. However, the September 11 attacks in 2001 led to greatly heightened concerns for bio-security and an urgent interest in any ability to see virus sized particles in the atmosphere, rapidly and simply.
