BioCote, manufacturers of anti-microbial coatings for medical and healthcare products, needed to trial its range of products in real-life environments. Medilink introduced BioCote directly to the CEO and Head of R&D at the Heart of England NHS Trust, who were interested in trialling new technologies in the area of infection control. As a result, both partners invested in a BioCote-protected lab in the R&D Centre and gathered valuable clinical trial data, which demonstrated a real benefit to the NHS and enabled the company to secure additional sales.  (West Midlands)
