November 2018-Made in South West award

The award was in recognition of the significant advances that the company have made in setting up a new manufacturing business with the potential to grow to become a worldwide supplier of new technology. The judging panel was impressed by Micrima’s growth from an idea conceived at the University of Bristol to the fact that the company now has a CE marked product that is in clinical trials in the UK and soon to be available throughout the world. The panel remarked that they liked the fact that each unit is built by the team at Micrima in our facilities in Bristol and that we have retained manufacturing control over the production of a complex technology that could benefit so many.
