The pervasiveness of technology in healthcare

As we round the last corner of 2016, end-of-the-year holidays upon us, we are reminded of the pervasiveness of technology in our lives.

Grand Opening of the TestPlant Americas Headquarters

Thank you for joining us on Wednesday 12 August for the Grand Opening of the TestPlant Americas Headquarters! What a lovely evening, with some great food and local beer and cider – we really enjoyed the Sweet Cow ice-cream truck!

George thanked everyone and looked forward to a very bright future. Read more
