Responding to the changing demands in measurement, NPL opened a new biotechnology unit to support biological measurements. It has seeded a spin out diagnostic company, AgPlus Diagnostics, and has turned us into a world leader in biometrology. NPL has developed a range of high order reference materials and methods to support the UK end users, from industry to NHS.
Today, as the physical sciences converge NPL is addressing the challenges in life sciences and healthcare to accelerate the discovery and development of new medicines, diagnostics and therapies. Our biometrology expertise has been applied to biomolecular and cell metrology, as well as finding solutions to the challenges of antimicrobial resistance, synthetic biology and cell therapies.
NPL is working to deliver personalised medicine, new treatments and earlier diagnosis.
