ioLight in the spotlight at UK’s largest innovation show
The two-day event in Manchester was hosted by the Department for International Trade and Innovate UK and is the largest cross-sector innovation show in the UK.
ioLight exhibited their new portable field microscope – the first portable digital microscope which delivers lab quality images to your iPad or iPhone.
Innovate UK Chief Executive Ruth McKernan said: “I congratulate ioLight on their success in winning a place and thank them for their involvement in our annual flagship show of innovation excellence across the UK. This year we saw an increase in the number of companies launching new products at the event. It is important for Innovate UK to support the showcasing of companies’ achievements, helping to raise visibility of their brand and demonstrating the impact that results from our support.”
Richard Williams, co-founder of ioLight said “ Innovate 2016 has been a great success for ioLight – everyone loved our 1 micron resolution portable microscope and we have received numerous compliments on the quality of the images, ease of use and design of the product. We even sold a microscope on the stand and the BBC’s Rory Cellan Jones saw the microscope and tweeted about us!”
