Lein is pleased to report that it has just successfully concluded its KTP (Knowledge Transfer Partnerships) project with Durham University. The project, to enhance Lein’s expertise in fluorescence confocal by developing pharmacokinetics instruments that can track drugs diffusing both in the eye and the skin, has proved to be a huge success.
The KTP associate, Dr. Kim Buttenschön took the core technology that she researched during her PHD and developed a fully engineered prototype that is now ready to be commercialised. This instrument will prove to be a key technology for both the pharmaceutical and cosmetic industries as they look for increased product development efficiencies.
Kim, who is moving back to her native Germany to manage government grant schemes, said “I have thoroughly enjoyed my three years at Lein. To be able to work at a rapidly growing, dynamic company like Lein has given me invaluable experience in both the technical and commercial aspects of the business. I would like to thank Lein, Durham University and the KTP for giving me this wonderful opportunity, which will stand me in good stead in the next stage of my career”.
Everyone at Lein wishes Kim all the very best as she continues, what we are sure will be, a very successful career. Dan Daly, CEO of Lein commented “We have worked with Kim for over 6 years, first during her PhD and subsequently during the KTP project. Lein’s growing commercial activities in fluorescence confocal metrology for disease diagnosis and treatment have been built on Kim’s excellent work.”
Lein is featured in this month's Optics.org in an article titled "Lein Applied Diagnostics sees new routes to cost-effective metrology". To read this article, which details some of the latest developments at Lein, please click here.
Lein is pleased to announce that it has received certification to the internationally recognised ISO9001:2008 quality management standard. The independent assessment was conducted by the British Assessment Bureau and demonstrates Lein’s commitment to customer service and quality in delivery.
Sharon Branch, Lein’s Quality Manager, said “We have for many years worked to robust quality standards to ensure that our products and services meet our customers’ needs and fulfil tight regulatory requirements. We are delighted to have now achieved ISO9001 certification as it underlines our ongoing drive for quality and to fulfil our customers’ requirements.

Certified organisations are committed to continuous improvement and are assessed annually to ensure progress is being maintained.
Lein will be showcasing it's latest product, fScan at BiOS and Photonics West 2015. fScan is a non-contact 3D fluorescence tracking plate reader that provides real time measurements. fScan has a 488 nm light source, which works with a large number of fluorophores including fluorescein. We look forward to discussing fScan and Lein's other products with you at BiOS and Photonics West.
