Farfield Sensors Wins UK Development Grant for its Ana Light Technology

NEW YORK, April 1 (GenomeWeb News) - Farfield Sensors of Manchester, UK, today announced it has received an small business research initiative grant for between £100,000 and £200,000 ($188,000 to $378,000) from the UK's Biotechnology and biological Sciences Research Council.

Farfield Sensors said it will use the funds to extend its Ana Light products, which use its dual polarization interferometry, an analytical technique used to examine the structure and behavior of molecular systems and interactions. The firm will conduct the project in collaboration with four members of ProteoGlycans North West, a group of 17 UK labs.
