Diagnosing TB – earlier, easier, faster

42 Technology was appointed by FIND, the Foundation for Innovative Diagnostics, to devise new concepts for the safe transfer of precise volumes of infected sputum samples enabling early detection of TB and prevention of accidental infection of healthcare workers.

Low cost unit speeds patient recovery times

42 Technology has developed a low cost, fully automated portable ice generator concept to help make cryotherapy a routine treatment after sports injuries and orthopaedic surgery, based on an ice-generation process initially developed for use in the brewing industry.

Developing needle-free drug delivery systems

42 Technology worked closely with Glide Pharma to improve understanding of their solid dose injector product, including development of theoretical system models and designing a measurement device to determine skin properties.

High speed powder printing for GSK

Research into existing powder dispense solutions for GSK led to the invention of Sticky Web, a high throughput precision powder dosing technology applicable to the dispense of high potency pharamceuticals as well as flavourings, colourings and speciality chemicals.
