STFC is providing leading-edge laboratory space for high-tech SMEs to improve their efficiency and competitiveness.
The Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC)’s Harwell Imaging Partnership (HIP) has provided Luxfer Gas Cylinders with access to testing facilities at the Diamond Light Source in order to optimise the damage resistance of their product designs.
Using the expertise in foot-and-mouth disease at The Pirbright Institute and facilities for determining protein structures at Diamond Light Source and its predecessor the Synchrotron Radiation Source (SRS), researchers have developed a new vaccine against foot-and-mouth disease (FMD).
UK industry working closely with STFC’s Daresbury Laboratory delivers new x-ray scanning technology that enhances airport security, reduces costs and improves passenger confidence.
STFC is providing the design infrastructure for the £23bn UK microelectronics sector, underpinning several other strategically important industries to the UK economy.
Waiting for a replacement organ that never comes is the heart breaking truth for 14% of patients requiring a liver transplant. The demand for replacement livers has always far outweighed the supply, with over 10,000 people waiting for a liver transplant in the EU alone. This means many patients can die, or otherwise become too sick to undergo surgery, during the wait. It is equally troubling that 6% of the EU population suffer from chronic long-term liver diseases.

The Vaccum Science Group at the Science and Technology Facilities Council’s (STFC) Accelerator Science and Technology Centre (ASTeC) has assisted vacuum component provider SS Scientific in gaining the product certification required to win a lucrative contract in the USA.
The most valuable resource in the world is time. The ESA BIC Harwell is supporting award-winning start-up company iGeolise in developing a new online application, ‘Travel Time’, which will revolutionise the way in which people search for any geographic location online.
One of the biggest fear for a diver is to resurface out of sight of the dive boat. With access to the world-class expertise available at the ESA BIC Harwell through STFC’s RAL Space, Sci Tech (POB) Ltd has designed a device that allows the boat to track the position of resurfaced divers through a GPS - enabled signalling device.
The Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC)’s Innovations Technology Access Centre (I-TAC) has enabled microbiology start-up company Perfectus Biomed to expand and secure investment.
