Prof. Yeatman is also co-founder and non-executive director of Microsaic Systems plc, which listed on the London Stock Exchange in April 2011. Microsaic develops and markets miniature mass spectrometers based on MEMS technology, and is the first company to introduce a miniature mass spectrometer for liquid analysis to the market. Prof. Yeatman was Chairman of Microsaic from 2004-2013, and acting CEO from Jan-Nov 2012.
