New Expert Advisory Group is formed to advance Dolomite’s growing application areas.

Dolomite, recently established as a subsidiary of Syrris Ltd, has announced the creation of a new advisory group to augment its scientific and fabrication expertise, following the 2006 formation of The Dolomite Centre Limited.

The advisory group will increase Dolomite’s access to capabilities and application areas, with professionals from sectors including Pharmaceuticals, Forensic Science, Medicine and Academia.

With the incorporation of the new advisory group, Dolomite aims to make strategic decisions about where to apply its specialist glass, quartz and ceramic technologies and its high performance microfluidics knowledge.

The group members include: Julie Deacon, Micro and Nanotechnology (MNT) Network; Leonard Fass, GE Healthcare; Stephanie Hawkes, GlaxoSmithKline; Andy Hopwood, Forensic Science Service; Graeme Maxwell, Centre for Integrated Photonics (CIP); Andrew de Mello, Imperial College London; and Ian Sturland of BAE Systems.

Commenting on the formation of the advisory group, Dolomite Managing Director Mark Gilligan said, "The formation of this new group is of significant value for Dolomite and allows us to make strategic decisions about where best to use microfluidic technology to address novel application areas."

He continued, "The technology will address the current industry demands for improved reproducibility, faster performance and lower reagent consumption."
