Yesterday we had the pleasure of filming with Dr. Paula Garcia Calavia and Jordan Hindes organic chemists, from Iceni Diagnostics Ltd. who focus on the development of carbohydrate-based therapeutics and point-of-care diagnostics for infectious diseases. We were grateful to have the opportunity to film with Paula and Jordan in their chemistry lab. Learning about the different equiment they use was fascinating. We particularly enjoyed seeing the vortex stirring machine in action.
