Anacail is an SME spin-out of the Astrophysics Department at Glasgow University, Scotland. Anacail specializes in creating and handling ozone in revolutionary, safe and flexible ways. Its key technology allows the generation of ozone (an activated form of oxygen), inside sealed packages, without damaging or opening the package. The ozone is generated from oxygen inside the package and is a potent germicide. After a short time all the ozone decays back to oxygen, leaving no residual chemicals, and a decontaminated or sterilized package and contents. Given this innovative approach offers rapid, safe and chemical-free sterilization, the technology can be applied anywhere that it is desired to reduce microbial contamination inside sealed packaging.

Anacail Closes £2M Series A Equity Funding Published On May 1, 2015 | Anacail Limited , a spin-out from the University of Glasgow’s School of Physics and Astronomy, closed a £2m Series A equity funding. Backers included new investor Sussex Place Ventures, existing investors IP Group plc and the Scottish Investment Bank (SIB) as well as a some private individuals. Led by Ian Muirhead, Chief Executive Officer, and Gareth Voyle, Non Executive Chairman, Anacail specializes in creating and handling ozone in flexible ways. Its technology allows the generation of ozone (an activated form of oxygen), inside sealed packages, without damaging or opening the package. The ozone, generated from oxygen inside the package, is a potent germicide and, after a short time, all the ozone decays back to oxygen, leaving no residual chemicals, and a decontaminated or sterilized package and contents. The initial target market for the technology is in food decontamination across the supply chain. Anacail was also awarded a £300k Innovate UK Biomedical Catalyst grant, in partnership with the University of Glasgow, to develop its application of ozone in medical device sterilization and decontamination.

This project will focus on increasing the efficiency of the analysis and design of components used in over-moded transmission lines. Over-moded transmission lines are used for a variety of applications for low loss transmission of microwave and millimeter waves. Efficient, high power, radio frequency sources are required for many planned and proposed accelerator programs. This project will develop a new radio frequency source that would be more efficient, more compact, and less costly then existing alternatives. This project will develop a 10 MW, 1.3 GHz annular beam klystron. The advanced design of the ABK is offers system costs that are significantly lower than those possible with conventional klystrons. The ABK will be useful for research and medical accelerators, and national defense and commercial applications. Successful development of a high power multiple beam klystron would provide an RF source for powering several accelerator systems desired at frequencies around 200 MHz. The proposed source would find applications in the United States, Europe, and Asia. This project will develop an advanced simulation code for photoinjectors that will help improve high-energy accelerator light-source performance benefiting applied research in biology, materials science and defense/security. This project will allow analysis of electrical breakdown on dielectric surface that increases the cost and reduce reliability of high power devices for high energy physics, defense, medical, and industrial applications. Successful development will allow design of more cost effective high power devices with increased reliability. This project will develop a new design tools for inductive output tubes. This will provide higher efficiency RF sources for driving high energy accelerators. High power waterload are necessary to meet the U.S. obligation to the ITER program for fusion energy research. This project will satisfy the ITER requirement and provide a waterload for other fusion facilities around the world. This project will investigate fundamental mode and higher order mode (HOM) IOTs for potential accelerator applications. Successful development of multiple beam inductive output tubes will demonstrate a new, high efficiency source for many high power RF applications. The device is simpler, more efficient, and less expensive then current devices. This program will develop new power coupler technology for the ILC. The technology developed will significantly advance the state-of-the-art in coupler design and be applicable to many world-wide accelerator projects. A fundamental mode (FM) multiple beam (MB) inductive output tube (IOT) is a candidate RF source to provide this power. The FM MB IOT offers compactness and improved efficiency. This program will generate designs for all major tube components. Successful development of multiple beam inductive output tubes will demonstrate a new, high efficiency source for many high power RF applications.
