Insplorion and Niigata University signs Joint Research Agreement

Insplorion AB has signed a joint research agreement with Niigata University with the aim to investigate and develop next generation sensors for the Insplorion Acoulyte instrument. Professor Kazunari Shinbo at Faculty of Engineering at Niigata University, Japan, has extensive experience in designing and developing nanograting surface structures that may become a valuable addition to the Insplorion Acoulyte product line. The agreement also grants Insplorion a license to the group’s IPR on previous work on plasmonic gratings in combination with the QCM technology.

"We are happy to see this agreement in place as it in the short term will support marketing activities of Acoulyte instruments in Japan and on longer terms can result in better Acoulyte sensors for all markets”, says Patrik Dahlqvist, Insplorion CEO.

“We are excited to further strengthen the collaboration that we have initiated with Insplorion earlier this year, with the aim to take our grating technology for sensing applications to a wider use via Insplorion’s research instruments”, comments Professor Kazunari Shinbo, Faculty of Engineering, Niigata University.
