KTP ‘IMPEL’ (2017-19)

  • About

In this Knowledge Transfer Partnership with Northumbria University our KTP Associate, Dr Pep Canyelles Pericas (who was based with Epigem at Redcar) worked closely with several of the University departments to develop a Surface Acosutic Wave (SAW) based PCR testing instrument. Initial protocols were developed for the identification of paratuberculosis (Johnes disease) in cattle. On completion the project was given the highest possible rating by an independent government assessor.
