4D Products long term client Mast Group Ltd have enjoyed recent success in the Northwest BioNow Awards, The Uri Plus system was short-listed in both the Innovation in Diagnostics Project and Healthcare Project of the Year categories.
James Bell – 4D Products Director attended the awards ceremony as Masts guest, at the Mere Golf & Country Club on Thursday 11th November 2010. The event was attended by 270 guests is a showcase for the very best of biomedicine in the region.
The Uri Plus project which automatically screens and reports over 95% of all urine cultures within 24 hours was designed and developed in partnership between 4D Products and Mast Group.
The machine offers significant cost saving both in terms of manufacture, assembly and also in the processing of samples. Making the product an attractive proposition for Mast and their clients.
To be short-listed is a great achievement in such a competitive vibrant industry in the Northwest. Uri Plus came in as runner up in both categories.
Congratulations must go the Professor Jackie Oldham of Manchester University for the FemiStem project who won the Healthcare project of the year award sponsored by TrustTech/NHS and ProKyma Technologies Ltd for winning the Innovation in Diagnostics Project sponsored by AstraZeneca with their KymaSep – Rapid automated concentration and purification system.
Congratulations must also go to Dr Martino Picardo of UMIC for Biomedical Personality of the year sponsored by BioNow.

The Northwest is home to significant expertise in this important sector, and the winners and those who are runners up, are testament to the excellent work being done in this fascinating growth industry here in the Northwest.”
