Novosound, the first spin-out company to emerge from the University of the West of Scotland, is trailblazing a new technique to mass-manufacture printable ultrasound sensors.
Unlike existing ultrasound sensors, Novosound’s ‘fit and forget’ sensors can be used at very high temperatures making them ideal for oil and gas monitoring. They also offer MRI levels of ultrasound imaging but without the associated cost. The company has global ambitions and recently raised £1.5million in seed funding to help them penetrate new markets in the US and Europe.
