Pinpoint Scientific, specialist product designer and manufacturer of environmental monitoring (EM) solutions for the pharmaceutical and related industries, has secured further investment to aid the development of its ImpactAir range of environmental monitoring solutions.

Cherwell Laboratories and Development Bank of Wales (DBW) have both invested in Pinpoint and taken a minority share in the business.

Andy Whittard, Cherwell’s Managing Director said: “The Annex 1 revision is potentially going to shift the dynamics for EM within grade A spaces and I think Pinpoint are well placed to service that need with innovative and highly effective monitoring devices.”

The investment not only secures jobs in South Wales, a key objective of DBW, but also allows the business to bring to the market some new products within the ImpactAir range.

Cherwell are an existing distributor of ImpactAir products within the UK and Whittard has also taken a seat on the Pinpoint board to help with business strategy and planning.

Gethin Jones, Managing Director of Pinpoint and the designer of the ImpactAir product says: “This is an exciting time for Pinpoint. We have been working on very innovative ideas to develop a new generation of microbial air monitors to meet the new Pharmaceutical regulations.”

The ImpactAir range of microbial air samplers is shortly to be expanded with the introduction of the new ImpactAir ISO-90 Monitoring Platform. ImpactAir is designed for continuous monitoring in high-grade areas, where in-process sampling of viable particles is often critical. The modular system designed to integrate into isolators or RABS, using an external controller and local or remotely located air mover.
