Home > Press > Nanotechnology Companies Called to Exhibit at New Technology in Healthcare Conference

Abstract:

The conference takes place on 13 May 2009 at the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff as Wales becomes increasingly recognised as the hot spot for new technology and innovation in the sector.

Nanotechnology Companies Called to Exhibit at New Technology in Healthcare Conference

Cardiff, Wales | Posted on March 16th, 2009

The event is being hosted by the Welsh Assembly Government and is the second in a series of conferences aimed at profiling the application of new technologies in different sectors. This year's healthcare theme will see health sector clinicians and business development executives interested in discovering new products, technologies and ideas in attendance, as well as finance directors and investors from across the country.

Wales' Deputy First Minister, Ieuan Wyn Jones, who will be attending the conference, said:

"This event will appeal to anyone interested in learning about new, specialist technologies and products in the healthcare sector and we hope it will generate new leads for the company's exhibiting. For instance, there will be plenty of networking and brokerage opportunities to discuss potential collaboration and commercial projects, which will go a long way to enhancing a company's profile to a national audience."

Three of Wales' most pioneering Nanotechnology companies will be demonstrating their capabilities at this year's New Technology in Healthcare Conference. Laser Micromachining Ltd (LML), MicroBridge Services and MetaFAB, all part of the XGEN consortium, will be profiling the practical application of their new products which have the potential to improve service delivery, patient safety and play a crucial role in a variety of other medical advancements.

Nadeem Risvi, General Manager of LML, said:

"We are proud to be part of this year's New Technology in Healthcare conference, which gives companies across the country a chance to highlight the excellent work that is being carried out for the health sector. Thanks to the state of the art facilities and equipment we have on our doorstep, Wales has built itself a growing reputation worldwide in the nanotechnology space and with the conference coming up there is no better time to showcase the benefits this new technology can bring to the health service."

MicroBridge Services will also be exhibiting at the New Technology in Healthcare Conference, as they are currently on course to tackle one of the major challenges facing the medical industry today - control over artificial limbs in severely disabled spinal injury patients or loss-of-limb patients via direct readings of the brain.

Dr. Robert Hoyle of MicroBridge Services, said:

"We have been collaborating with researchers and medical practitioners who are testing our micro-needle array sensors in the field which we believe one day will have a massive impact on the future functionality of severely disabled or loss-of-limb patients. Because of the complex and delicate nature of the brain, there is no room for error but with years of dedicated research, we are confident that are machinery can stand up to the test and be used in medical device research and development for years to come."

Wales' Deputy First Minister, Ieuan Wyn Jones added:

"It is very fitting that these latest exciting developments are being showcased during the 2009 New Technology in Healthcare Conference. Having the three centres from XGEN exhibiting is great news and highlights the wealth of expertise and knowledge we have here in Wales in RFID and MNT technologies."
