Figura is a spin-out business from Loughborough University. Its academic founders have spent years developing a technology format that is low cost, easy to assemble and multiuse. We have been using this technology to characterise nanomaterials, proteins, heavy metal ions, colloids, bacteria, and algae in a range of solutions from sea water, blood and beverages.

The technology has been fast-tracked through Innovate UK’s Innovation to Commercialisation of University Research (ICURe) programme and Figura was formed in January 2021.

Now, with the support of Loughborough University, The Manufacturing Technology Centre, and a further Innovate UK grant, the team has a technology ready for manufacturing trials.

We are already working with partners to validate and improve their processes.
