Previous clients of ARU Biometrics

ARU has already helped a number of organisations to solve problems, increase profits, and develop products. Find out how we have made a positive impact.

Supporting European double-digit growth

Our testing expertise and facilities have already helped organisations increase profits, client relationships, and opened the door for more people to carry out research.

Working with Salimetrics Europe, the world leaders for the measurement of hormones, cytokines, and immune markers, we understood that not all researchers have access to a laboratory or the skills and experience to use Salimetrics Europe's testing kits.

So we created Spit Camp. These training days teach Salimetric Europe's clients how to use testing kits and how to interpret results, increasing kit sales, and strengthening client relationships.

We've also analysed over 8,500 saliva and hair samples this year as part of our analysis service for Salimetric Europe's clients who do not have access to their own laboratory, meaning researchers don't have to be experts to do research with salivary biomarkers.

But don't just take our word for it...

"The Spit Camp idea has been an invaluable project and has allowed Salimetrics to enjoy double digit growth throughout Europe and for researchers a unique opportunity to learn from one of the UK's leading experts in this field." Roger Sparrow, Salimetrics Europe

How dirty is Heart FM?

What's in your bag? Phone? Keys? E. coli?

After a national paper ran a story of what horrors might be lurking in women's bags, we helped Heart FM's Breakfast Show carry out their own investigation to see just how dirty their presenter, Su, was.

Armed with swabs and equipment we took samples so that we could grow the microorganisms lurking in the depths of Su's handbag back in the microbiology laboratory in Cambridge. The next day we told the radio listeners what we'd found and how to help lower the spread of infection where they live.

We're looking at continuing this work in the future, and we'd love to test new areas too. Perhaps you want to see how clean your doctor's surgery is? Or do you live in fear from the handrails at the station? You might even need to run a report on what substances are in your restaurant. Let us know! Email biometrics@anglia.ac.uk.
