Access to Business Durham Services

aXenic are a tenant here at the NETPark Incubator with a suite of fully fitted cleanroom, laboratory and high-quality office space in which to conduct research and development across their product portfolio. As a NETPark tenant, aXenic has benefited from access to networking opportunities at NETPark’s regular events and breakfast briefing sessions, and access to regional expertise on subjects such as finance, skills and operations.

Steve Clements, Managing Director of aXenic, said: ‘Access to quality facilities was one of the main drivers for deciding to locate the business at the NETPark. We have been able to use this as a launch pad to link into support from CPI and world-class expertise from Durham University’.

The company has worked closely with Durham University to conduct further research and development around their technology. The company has accessed the confocal microscopy facility in Biological and Biomedical Sciences and their Optical Applications Engineer, Nigel Cameron has attended the Durham University Industrial Partnership Committee in the School of Engineering and Computing Sciences.

The company is also actively engaged with the North East Satellite Applications Centre of Excellence, which is located at NETPark, to explore delivery of technology and projects within the global space sector. This includes identifying project and funding opportunities and navigating the business support landscape to access funding from Innovate UK and European Framework projects.

Thanks to Business Durham, the company has also received support from the CPI-managed National Printable Electronics Centre at NETPark. The company has been able to access test equipment and facilities provided by CPI which has assisted the company during research and development projects, ultimately accelerating new products to market.
