|Cronin Group PLC Digital Chemistry to be performed in spaceSource: RNS Non-RegulatoryTIDMCRONCronin Group PLC16 February 201716 February 2017Cronin Group Plc(the "Company")Digital Chemistry to be performed in spaceCronin Group Plc, the AIM listed company with a business activity of the digitization of chemical space is pleased to note that an experiment designed by its scientific founder is to be carried out on a DIDO2 nano-satellite, successfully launched yesterday on an Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) rocket.Prof Lee Cronin, the University of Glasgow Regius Chair of Chemistry and Founding Scientific Director of the Company, designed the experiment in partnership with SpacePharma, a company which specialises in providing scientists with access to microgravity environments. The Company owns the commercial rights to intellectual property from the University of Glasgow to develop the Chemputer(TM), which intends to open up chemistry to a wide user-base via digitization.Prof Cronin said: "It's exciting to see digital chemistry being trialled in space for the first time. Low and zero-gravity offer a range of new opportunities for performing chemical reactions which I believe will only be able to be performed routinely using a digital chemistry platform."The Company announced in January that during 2017 it anticipated early product releases of DigitalGlassware(TM), it's low-cost, easy to use chemical telemetry product designed to enable the routine digitization of chemistry in commercial and academic research laboratories."The experiment carried out today is part of previous research performed and part-funded by the University, with additional funding from the European Research Council and the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council. The research aims to digitize chemistry and make it possible for chemical compounds of all kinds to be printed on demand."ENDS Contacts: Cronin Group Plc www.croningroupplc.com James Ede-Golightly, Chairman T: 01481 701 564 WH Ireland Limited www.whirelandplc.com Mike Coe / Ed Allsopp T: 0117 945 3470 This information is provided by RNSThe company news service from the London Stock ExchangeENDNRAGGUGPPUPMGRA(END) Dow Jones NewswiresFebruary 16, 2017 02:00 ET (07:00 GMT)|
|A very promising development IMHO|

He has a strong track record of taking innovative ideas off the drawing board and turning them into commercial reality. Paul joins chemistry and hardware industry experts Laurence Ede and Riccardo Pigliucci in advising the Company on its commercial and technical strategy.Paul was a pioneer in the wearable technology category, founding Fitbug Limited in 2005 after he identified a lack of technology being used in the wellness space. He foresaw that devices combined with digital technology and the internet could invoke changes in the behaviour of individuals with regard to their health. Paul acted as CEO of Fitbug until November 2015. Prior to Fitbug he worked in the technology sector, starting at Accenture in 1998 specialising in systems implementations and process improvement projects for international blue-chip clients.ENDS Contacts: Cronin Group Plc www.croningroupplc.com James Ede-Golightly, Chairman T: 01481 701 564 WH Ireland Limited www.whirelandplc.com Mike Coe / Ed Allsopp T: 0117 945 3470 This information is provided by RNSThe company news service from the London Stock ExchangeENDNRALIFEDLAILVID(END) Dow Jones NewswiresJanuary 31, 2017 03:03 ET (08:03 GMT)|
|Whilst looking for follow-up on the J.P. Morgan Healthcare Conference / DigitalGlassware announcement, I noticed that Cronin's Chemputer gets a mention in today's Daily Mail Online (nothing new, just nice to see it being talked about) -
|Wonder why no rns?
Jan 2017 - Cronin group ‘3D Drugs Printer’ robot paper describes the first digital-code-driven organic synthesis robot as the first step to the digitization of chemistry
Featured Member(s): Prof. Lee Cronin Vasilios Duros Dr. Phil Kitson
An automated synthesis robot was constructed by modifying an open source 3D printing platform. The resulting automated system was used to 3D print reaction vessels (reactionware) of differing internal volumes using polypropylene feedstock via a fused deposition modeling 3D printing approach and subsequently make use of these fabricated vessels to synthesize the nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug ibuprofen via a consecutive one-pot three-step approach. The synthesis of ibuprofen could be achieved on different scales simply by adjusting the parameters in the robot control software. The software for controlling the synthesis robot was written in the python programming language and hard-coded for the synthesis of ibuprofen by the method described, opening possibilities for the sharing of validated synthetic ‘programs̵7; which can run on similar low cost, user-constructed robotic platforms towards an ‘open-source8217; regime in the area of chemical synthesis.

|Picked up some more at these rock bottom prices and notice a good rebound on a large buy order on Friday. Got good vibes here but can't add much more yet. JP|
|Nice to see some action here for a change. Buying interest sparked by this article almost matched by disgruntled holders taking the opportunity to sell.
Hopefully a signal of better times ahead. Certainly a fascinating area of r&d and I'm happy to hold.|
|SP up (a bit) on increased volume. Some interest at last.|
|Cronin mention. Looks time to buy folks imo. What amazing technology this is. See....New research considers 'growing' droneshttp://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-36694899|
|Interesting, thanks.... "We aim to have the first integrated functioning prototype
Chemputer™ systems by the end of 2016, thereby starting the era of digital chemistry".
Applications of Cronin technology in agriculture look particularly interesting... "The ability for farmers to produce essential chemicals such as pesticides and veterinary medicines on demand has the potential to revolutionise agriculture, according to a report published by Global Food Security (GFS)".|
|From their Chemputer - take a look at their 2015 Annual Report. I suspect it'll be ages till they make much money.
|Fascinating stuff Matthew, even for a non-scientist like me. But no indication whatsoever of how Cronin Group might make any money, now or at any time in the future.
|Feature on Lee Cronin (with small reference to Cronin Group PLC)http://www.rsc.org/chemistryworld/2016/04/lee-cronin-profile-inorganic-clusters-robot-reactors|
|What's that then?|
|Looks like take off delayed|
|Onwards and upwards! - (we hope)|
|Cronin is the new name for Oxaco/Oxford Advanced Surfaces hTTp://www.oxaco.co.uk/index.asp|
