Profile
Centre for NanoHealth, Swansea University - The College of Engineering at Swansea University is ranked 10th in the UK in Engineering. With our world-class research, links with industry and outstanding facilities. The £22m Centre for NanoHealth (CNH) at Swansea University is a joint venture between Engineering, Medicine and Science - integrating nanotechnology into medical science applications to provide healthcare solutions to healthcare providers and the healthcare industry.
The centre houses fully integrated nanotechnology clean rooms and biomedical R&D laboratories in a unique facility. The nano-fabrication and characterisation class 1000/100 cleanroom are fully equipped for graphene, silicon and non-silicon, microfluidics (lab on chip) and MEMS processing, whilst the class 1000 bioclean room is used for device functionalisation, and 3D printing. The sensor houses a £1.3m NanoProbe - one of only 5 in the world, as well as new AFM, SEM, XPS, Raman, fluorescence microscopy and other characterisation facilities.
