A flexible and consultative approach

When undertaking a research based project,
specifications need to remain flexible and may not be clearly defined at the outset!

PTP works flexibly with organisations throughout a project as their specifications evolve. We work closely with clients, taking a consultative approach to ensure that their research objectives are met.

We have worked on a wide variety of projects in research from Machine Control developments for controlling complex mining research machinery through to LabVIEW development for telecoms R&D.

Embedded Venom code development

A team of scientists from Imperial College London and The University of Cambridge developed the Scanning Ion Conductance Microscope (SICM), a patented topographic scanning technique which produces high-resolution images without making contact with the sample. Its non-invasive nature is of particular importance when scanning soft and living samples.
