Figura is a spinout business from Loughborough University. Its academic founders have spent years developing the technology behind Figura. We have been using this technology to characterise nanomaterials, proteins, heavy metal ions, colloids, bacteria, and algae in a range of solutions from sea water, to blood and beverages.

Following our spinout in January 2021 we have been backed by SFC Capital, Innovate UK and Angel Investors to develop and launch our platform technology.
