The Institute of Bio-Sensing Technology is the first of its kind in the UK. Within our laboratories we design complex biological tests and incorporate those tests into prototype devices using microfluidics and bespoke electronics. We are a “one stop shop” working on all aspects of the product simultaneously. Our focus is on the growing market sectors of healthcare, agri-food, environmental monitoring and security. We aim to form collaborative teams across industry, the public sector and academia to address market driven challenges. We support the development of networks of interested parties both locally in the Bristol & Bath area but also building links with specific partners across the globe.

Medilink South West is part of Medilink UK; a national health technology business support organisation. Medilink South West supports innovation, new product development and diversification into the sector by providing focused events, identifying potential research and commercial opportunities and providing details of the latest funding competitions.

The network includes hundreds of companies and organisations across every aspect of the medical and healthcare sector, including product manufacturing; supply chain; materials and design; food processing and packaging and support services. Medilink provides the knowledge and support to help your business grow and exploit opportunities.

We bring together the NHS (clinical need), academia (technology), business (innovators, suppliers) and investors to drive industry competitiveness.
