Instrument Design Technology (IDT), based within the Daresbury Science and Innovation Campus (Daresbury SIC), has been awarded a £1.2m contract to supply the Australian Synchrotron Project (ASP).



The new contract comes a year after the signing of a memorandum of understanding between the Northwest Regional Development Agency (NWDA) and the State of Victoria, Australia.



IDT designs, builds and tests mechanical instrumentation for particle accelerator science users and supplies project management resource.



The company specialises in synchrotron beamline instrumentation, which gives clearer and more consistent images of minute particles and chemical structures. This technology can be used to improve imaging in many fields, including biological research, drug design, medical imaging, forensics and sustainable energy.
