• ODIN: Realising the power of Deep UV Raman spectroscopy to characterise equine synovial fluids 21/07/2022
    Measuring the molecular and chemical composition of biological samples has remained challenging yet advances in medical treatments rely largely on the ability to detect and identify molecular signatures of disease, as well as developing therapeutics to target specific illnesses within individuals. Biologic samples are, by their nature, fragile, making them susceptible to damage from long […]

  • ISI and Jacobs Collaboration Delivers New Class of Spatial Heterodyne Raman Spectrometer 01/12/2020
    The nuclear sector has a very real need for the capability of identifying potentially hazardous substances accurately and from distance to limit exposure and hazard to human operators. IS-Instruments has been working in the nuclear decommissioning sector since 2018 when it partnered with i3D robotics to developed Callisto, a system combining advancing stereo camera technology […]

  • IS-Instruments Wins Government Funding to Help Solve the Personal Protection Equipment (PPE) Crisis 02/11/2020
    ISI has won funding to produce a fluorescent imaging device that could provide a solution to dwindling stocks of PPE by determining contamination levels on used equipment and wearables after they have been through simple cleaning processes. This will enable the PPE and equipment to be assessed to determine how often PPE needs replacing, [...] […]

  • Collaborations During COVID-19 – The Work Must Go On! 02/11/2020
    When the lockdown was announced, the way we worked had to change. As an organisation, IS-Instruments has always worked collaboratively, however, generally, we’ve all been in the same vicinity, sharing offices and laboratories for our own projects as well as facilitating the cross-over of a number of our projects with those of i3D robotics. File Sharing […]
