TTP Atlas io technology.

The Atlas io™ system enables healthcare professionals to ‘test and treat’ within 30 minutes in their own offices and clinics.

TTP is delighted to announce that it has completed development of the Atlas io™ Reader instrument for Atlas Genetics. The Atlas io™ system is set to revolutionise the diagnosis of infectious diseases by bringing down the time required to take a patient sample and make a diagnosis to less than thirty minutes. This compares with the typical three to ten day turnaround traditionally required to achieve the same diagnosis through a central lab.

The Atlas io™ Reader operates with a test-specific disposable reagent cartridge and fully automates a three-stage process of DNA extraction and purification, DNA amplification, and electrochemical detection of the target infection. The operator simply adds the patient's sample to the cartridge, inserts it into the Reader, and follows on-screen prompts to make the diagnosis. 

Achieving this level of simplicity for users ...

SonicSense

TTP, a leading UK-based technology and product development company, has come up with an innovative approach to gas sensing that radically cuts cost, size and power consumption. The new ultrasonic sensor uses patent-pending TTP technology to precisely measure the speed of sound in a gas to determine its composition and can also be connected wirelessly to the Internet for remote monitoring and data collection.

Drawing on TTP’s expertise in nonlinear acoustics and piezoelectric technology, the new SonicSense devices will cost between £3 and £6 each in volume production. TTP is investigating a wide range of industrial and medical applications, from gas safety and process control to respiratory monitoring and anaesthesia. Once the speed of sound through the gas is measured, thermal compensation is applied before the composition of a binary gas mixture is calculated. Additional bulk gas properties such as density can also be determined using the same sensor architecture to enable more co...

Ofcom Study

Leading Cambridge-based technology innovation company TTP has been awarded a research project by UK radio regulator Ofcom to assess the potential for future improvements in the performance of radio receivers, in particular for TV.  The project builds on a previous research programme conducted by TTP for Ofcom in 2009.

As demands on spectrum increase, regulators are looking to enable services such as mobile broadband and White Space to operate alongside broadcast TV.  Dr Antony Rix from TTP’s Wireless group commented that, “if TV spectrum in 700MHz is to be released for LTE or other uses, it is critical that TV receivers operating close to these frequencies continue to be able to operate with a very high quality of service.”

TTP’s research will assess the potential for TV receiver performance, specifically adjacent channel selectivity, to be increased.  Lewis Davies, who is leading the project at TTP, highlights that, “although the performance of best-in-class silicon tuners now br...

Fluxor technology

9 September 2013: Engineers at The Technology Partnership (TTP) have discovered a way to break through the Faraday Cage that prevents the entry or escape of an electromagnetic field through a metallic enclosure. While the Faraday Cage effect does have useful applications from preventing leakage from microwave ovens to lightning strike protection and screening data cables, TTP’s new patent-pending Fluxor technology will have major benefits for power and data transfer through metal shielding. TTP is already using the technology for monitoring fluid levels in steel pipes, taking readings from medical implants and measuring data from inside high-performance F1 engines.

TTP’s Fluxor method creates a ‘window’ for electromagnetic transmission of power and data by applying a strong DC magnetic field, which lines up the magnetic dipoles in the material to ‘saturate’ a small area of the metal screen. This reduces the permeability and increases penetration to make it possible to transfer elec...

Multi material breakthrough for 3D printing

TTP has today unveiled its ground breaking Vista 3D, which is the first  print head technology that can print with more than one material.  Unlike existing 3D printing solutions, the same Vista 3D print heads can dispense or print ceramics, and even biological cells, as well as the traditional metals and plastics, opening up the possibility of printing products as diverse as toys, medical devices, aircraft parts and even diagnostic test strips at the touch of a button. 

This breakthrough in technology will potentially change the face of manufacturing, as we know it. It will give organisations the ability to print off stock and supplies of complex products that comprise of several materials as and when they need, making the process of ordering goods from the Far East or other manufacturing facilities a thing of the past.

By discovering a breakthrough method in droplet ejection, TTP’s Vista 3D can print large (50 µm+) particles and more viscous and volatile fluids.  The open printhe...

Employee ownership day launches with ministerial visit to TTP Group

The aim of employee ownership day is to draw attention to and promote the values and benefits of employee ownership into the wider business community. The scheme is a part of a co-operation between the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS) and the Employee Ownership Association (EOA). 

TTP Group’s exceptional performance and unity of purpose have been ascribed in part to employee participation in the ownership of the Company, and with 88% of TTP Group’s current employees being shareholders they are a great example of employee ownership success. This is now being more widely accepted, as demonstrated by the conclusions of The Nuttall Review published last year, where employee ownership was identified as one of the centrepieces to creating long term sustainable economic growth.  

Lord Younger said

“As we focus on growth, there has never been a more important time to support alternative ways of running a business. There is clear evidence that businesses with  employee...
