Research work featured in the cover of Journal of Materials Chemistry A

The cover of the current issue 4 (2016) in Journal of Materials Chemistry A features one of the latest research works developed in collaboration between Bio Nano Consulting, Imperial College London and King Abdulaziz University in Saudi Arabia. The work is based on the synthesis of new materials based on carbon nanotube aerogels. The highly […]

Latest research work highlighted as Hot Article 2015 in Journal of Materials Chemistry

One of the latest research works developed at Bio Nano Consulting in collaboration with University College London (UCL) has now been featured as a ‘Hot Article 2015’ in the Journal of Materials Chemistry A, a renowned journal within the scientific community. The work has been developed by Dr Nicholas Chadwick (Scientific Consultant at BNC) under […]

BNC wins India-UK Collaborative Industrial R&D grant for sensor to detect arsenic in water

BNC, world-leading technology solution providers and strategic consultants working in a range of high-technology sectors, is pleased to announce that it has won a grant from Innovate UK (formerly known as the Technology Strategy Board or TSB) under its India-UK Collaborative Industrial R&D competition. The grant will support further development of BNC’s novel arsenic biosensor […]

BNC leads H2020 project in nanoelectronics

Bio Nano Consulting (BNC), announces the start of a multinational project funded by the European Commission under the H2020 ICT Programme: PETMEM (Piezoelectronic Transduction Memory Device). PETMEM is a European partnership amongst Universities, Research Institutions, SMEs and a large company that will focus on the development of new materials and characterization tools to enable the […]

New contract for research collaboration

Bio Nano Consulting (BNC), is pleased to announce that it has signed a contract for a new two-year research collaboration with one of its key partners in the Middle East. Representing BNC’s third major collaboration with the Chemistry Department of King Abdulaziz University (KAU), this contract will support two collaborative research projects in the increasingly-important […]

Innovate UK funds BNC for kidney disease sensor

The Smart Award will support further development of BNC’s proprietary technology capable of quantifying protein in urine. According to a report published in 2012 by NHS Kidney Care, kidney disease costs the NHS over £1.4 billion per annum, more than breast, lung, colon and skin cancers combined. A year later, the Kidney Health Report highlighted that […]

Case Study on Longitude Prize website

Bio Nano Consulting (BNC), together with its academic partners at the London Centre for Nanotechnology (LCN), has spearheaded the use of nanomechanical sensors known as “cantilevers” to analyse in detail the mechanism of action of a new antibiotic that holds promise as one of the few antibiotics that can be used to combat increasingly resistant […]

Launch of the water reuse network

BNC is pleased to announce the launch of a new computational tool for assessing the economic viability of “greywater” reuse networks for use by local government, town and city planners, and private developers.  As part of BNC’s Smart Water  focus, BNC is launching a consultancy service to make this important tool commercially available. The water […]

Nanocantilevers quantify free antibiotics in blood

BNC collaborators at University College London have developed nanomechanical cantilever sensor arrays capable of quantifying free antibiotics in human blood while confirming the efficacy of the dose.  Cantilever arrays are effectively micron-scale “diving boards” fabricated from silicon that bend when a drug being studied binds to a target receptor on the cantilever’s surface.  The work, […]
