Welcome to this week’s newsletter from Zimmer and Peacock. This newsletter is a mixture of news, stories and tech notes from Zimmer and Peacock. If you want to subscribe to our newsletter or have any questions regarding Zimmer and Peacock and our passion for biosensor technologies please don’t hesitate to contact us.

Life Sciences Wales

Zimmer and Peacock will be attending ‘This is Life Sciences, This is Wales’, at the RocketSpace London UK on the 27 February 2019, feel free to meet us there.

New Potassium Wire Sensor @ZP

At ZP we are contract developers and manufacturers of continuous glucose, lactate, sodium, potassium and pH in a wire format. In this image we show the data from our new potassium wire sensor.

New team members @ZP

ZP is the world’s leading contract developer and manufacturer of electrochemical sensors, biosensors and IVDs; this week we are welcoming two more members to our growing team.

Parallel Testing @ ZP

Here is a quick video on one way we perform parallel testing at ZP – we are very mindful of time at ZP and so if we can be more efficient then we will.

Measuring pH sensors with Arduino

At Zimmer and Peacock we try to support the sensor and biosensor community and if we find a lower cost way of doing things then we will tell you, because at ZP we believe part of the future is sensors everywhere. In this latest video we are helping some clients with a cable for measuring our pH sensors with an Arduino board.

Disposable Conductivity/Salinity Sensors

At Zimmer and Peacock we recognise that conductivity measurements and the closely related salinity measurements are critical in a number of applications from water testing to beverage testing to urine testing etc.
Here we show our new thick film printed conductivity sensor along with the supporting data.

The ZP sensor has several advantages over traditional conductivity probes, including:
1) it can be used with less than 100 microliters of sample.
2) it is more accurate at low conductivity and salinity than traditional probes.
3) it can be manufactured at high volume for low cost.
4) it can be used for applications where sample contamination is an issue, as it can be disposed after use.
