Deepbridge are pleased to report that Glyconics, which is part of the Deepbridge Life Sciences SEIS portfolio, have signed a hardware partner agreement with Spectrolytic, a leading developer in infared (IR) spectrometers.

A hand-held device that would give early warning of ‘acute events’- and so avoid the hospitalisation of thousands of patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) - is to go into production ahead of clinical trials, which are expected for Q1 2019.
