Company History and Locations
Microvisk was originally founded in 2004 and in 2006, expanded its premises and undertook a clinical trial for PT/INR with the Royal London Hospital, which gave excellent results in comparison with a universally recognised laboratory-based industry standard. Initial research was carried out at the Rutherford Appleton Laboratories in Oxfordshire. An increase in staff levels was seen in 2008 along with a move to a new facility with custom-built laboratories and additional office space, thus paving the way for future expansion. Microvisk is now funded through a mixture of private and venture capital investors.
In Oxfordshire, Microvisk has a new prototyping facility up and running. In-line with the company intention to develop more tests both in the medical diagnostic field and in other viscometry applications, we continue to utilise our in-house expertise and knowledge, to optimise and develop the next generations of chips.
We are now finalising designs and completing our multiple clinical trials, in preparation for the 2012 launch of the CoagMax® & CoagLite® system
Microvisk is based at two sites:
Our custom-built facilities include an instrumentation laboratory for the development of Microvisk hardware and a clinical development laboratory for scientific development and project management at the St Asaph Business Park in Wales. We have extensive clean room production facilities and a large administrative office that will cater for the company expansion over the coming years.
