UK firms highlight the best of British at Nanotechnology show

UK | Posted on February 16th, 2008

For the fourth consecutive year, UKTI, the government's international business development organisation, is helping to promote the UK's expertise in nanotechnology at Tokyo nano tech 2008, the world's premier show for the nanotechnology industry.

The firms coming to the show will be looking for other companies with which to collaborate.

UKTI's involvement comes after the success of UK NanoForum 2007 in November last year when British firms working in this ground-breaking field were able to meet potential commercial partners from all over the world.

The 18 companies that will be on the UK's pavilion are some of the most innovative in the UK and include Intrinsiq (formerly QinetiQ Nanomaterials), which at NanoForum 2007 announced they had completed trials on a nanotechnology compound that could kill MRSA, H5N1 and e-Coli when put on surfaces.

Andrew Cahn, chief executive of UK Trade & Investment, said: "These firms are a fantastic example of British business success. They are high-tech firms, closely integrated with the strong UK research and development base. It is no surprise that many of the UK companies are university spin-outs or are attached to university science departments in some way.

"Nanotechnology continues to be a growing and exciting field and the possibilities are huge. British firms are conducting world class ground-breaking research, and, with. UKTI help, are able to market their capabilities and products worldwide. My organisation has a strong team of specialists dedicated to supporting British involvement in the nanotechnology industry and our support to firms at this show is evidence of that. I wish these firms well."

Tokyo nano tech 2008, held between 13 and 15 February, is the world's largest nanotechnology event with more than 500 companies exhibiting. It is expected to attract some 50,000 visitors to the show.

Dr Michael Edelman, chief executive of Nanoco spoke of the importance of Tokyo nano tech to their firm.

He said: "Nanoco has participated in nano tech Tokyo for the last three years. The show, which has expanded each year, has been invaluable to Nanoco's business development. We are grateful for UKTI's support of Nanoco's attendance to this key nanotechnology trade show."
