Using leading-edge micro- and nano- fabrication techniques, Owlstone has created a complete chemical detection system that is one hundred times smaller and one thousand times cheaper than existing technologies.

There are numerous applications - across industries from security and defence to automotive and healthcare. 

The company has won widespread commercial and academic recognition for its work and the new office on the Science Park was opened last month by Tony Blair. 

Today Owlstone Medical is applying the technology to the greatest health challenges, devising a simple breath test indicating cancer, inflammatory and infectious disease.

Owlstone span-out of the Engineering Department of the University of Cambridge in 2004.
