Adastral Park: Disect graduates from Innovation Martlesham incubator

A HI-TEC imaging company has graduated from the Innovation Martlesham business incubator programme at BT’s Adastral Park.

Disect Systems, a developer of scanner imaging software, has moved into the newly-refurbished Ross building as a paying tenant of the Innovation Martlesham initiative, which took over the building earlier this year.

The company’s software, developed to run on conventional computing platforms rather than expensive bespoke solutions, is being used to provide a viewing system for the health and education market, as part of an integrated high-definition conferencing system for sharing radiology images across multiple locations.

Some of Disects’ customers include Cancer Research UK and St George’s University, London.

After securing a grant from the Technology Strategy Board, Disect is now working with the University of Essex on the research and development of leading edge scanner technology.

Innovation Martlesham is an umbrella organisation for the cluster of information and communication technology (ICT) companies located at Adastral Park.

It provides a collaborative environment for ICT companies which want to be located alongside the leading names from the industry with a presence at Adastral Park which, besides BT, include Alcatel-Lucent, Cisco Systems, Fujitsu and Nokia Siemens Networks.
