Friday, 2nd March 2007

Paraytec's ActiPix detector has won a major international award at the world's largest scientific instrument conference, Pittcon2007. The ActiPix D100 UV imaging area detector was selected from over 1000 exhibited products and awarded the Pittcon2007 Silver Editors' Choice Award.

The award was judged by editors of scientific publications reporting on the conference, which was held this year in Chicago with an attendance of over 20,000 people. Paraytec competed against the world's largest scientific instrument companies to emerge with the Silver award in recognition of the genuine technology advances of its ActiPix capillary-based miniature UV detection system.

Paraytec's CEO, Carolyn Parkinson, said: "We have always believed that Paraytec's technology was capable of making a major global impact. With this award we have achieved world-class recognition of the real significance of this invention and its potential future role in analytical detection instrumentation. This is a major achievement for a small company, and the whole team is thrilled."

The ActiPix D100 is currently in early stage sales to end users and development partners. The technology is already opening up important new applications and is literally changing the face of UV absorbance detection. Jim Lenke of Protea Biosciences in West Virginia has been using the detector for several months and has been "astounded" by its capabilities. Dr Lenke commented "This is a detector with so much potential that it is bound to have an impact on key discoveries for years to come."
