Our group's recent BBSRC-funded project “Application of ATR-FTIR imaging to industrial scale production of therapeutic antibodies” is a part of Bioprocessing Research Industry Club (BRIC) in collaboration with Paul Corporation and the Department of Life Sciences (Analytical Chemistry 2014 Open Access; Analytical and Bioanalytical Chemistry 2015 Open Access and Sciencetific Reports 2016 Open Access).
Our long-standing collaboration with Specac, Ltd. led to two new commercial products: a Supercritical Fluids Golden Gate (American Laboratory 33(16) (2001) 44-49). and the Imaging Golden Gate, both are diamond based ATR accessories for macro ATR-FTIR spectroscopic imaging. Our group demonstrated the applicability of using a prototype diamond accessory for imaging in the article in 2003 (Applied Spectroscopy). Prof. Kazarian has been invited be a member of Specac Scientific Advisory Board.
