THE micro silica thermoluminescent radiation detector company!

TrueInvivo’s CTO, Dr. Shakardokht Jafari, discovered the excellent properties of glass bead detectors for measuring radiation. Today, the company’s CE-marked micro silica thermoluminescent detectors can be used in radiotherapy, in nuclear areas, in food irradiation, in blood banks and in many other applications.

To take the results of great research into the reality of people’s daily lives. Let’s together  improve health and well-being. Let’s save lives.
Our values are to be ethical, honest, respectful, innovative, collaborative, and especially open to all people everywhere. It’s our world. Let’s improve it together for us and our children.
We promise to deliver a consistently high quality of work and strive for huge customer satisfaction. We will always aim to learn more, to improve our business and to share our knowledge widely.

In-Body Measurement in Radiotherapy

Radiotherapy clinicians carefully calculate and test radiation treatment for each cancer patient.  However, despite all the care, worldwide between 10% and 25% of radiotherapy patients do get damaged.

The problem is how to measure the accuracy in the body during radiotherapy. No one can see what has been hit. No one knows the effects until the patient reports problems weeks later.

TRUEinvivo detectors measure the dose and spread of radiation received at the tumour. The clinician can check and adjust for accuracy the same day. No waiting. Less damage.


Research in Dosimetry

Micro silica thermoluminescent radiation detectors (TLDs) are new in dosimetry but already have over 30 published papers. TRUEinvivo encourages the widest range of TLD ideas to be researched and tested to see what advances can be made using this exciting new technology. Our aim is to help researchers and research projects around the world.

We provide CE-marked characterised micro silica TLDs in a dedicated Researcher Kit for such investigations and projects. We are also developing a new type of automated fast TLD reader. Contact us to join our International Researcher Network.


Nuclear, Food, Blood Banks and the Rest!

Our micro silica thermoluminescent detectors (TLDs) can detect all types of ionising radiation.  Glass beads are inert, small, simple and robust – and have high performance – and measure radiation doses in high resolution in difficult conditions such as

  • In aqueous environments
  • In small or large radiation fields
  • In in-body situations

Our Mission

It was Shakar who said “I want to take the results of great research into the reality of people’s daily lives. Not just in advanced countries but everywhere in the world. Let’s improve health and well-being. Let’s save lives”. That is our mission.

Our Vision

All too often great research or just great ideas lay fallow in a report gathering dust on a shelf because no one had the vision to see how it could be used. Perhaps the timing was wrong, there was no market then, or no money nor team to develop it. Our vision is to attract great researchers in academia and in industry. To spark collaboration in unexpected ways. To generate great and exciting ideas that can help the world – and then make them happen! Actually bring them to reality. We have great engineering heroes like James Dyson who has those exciting ideas and understands the trials and tribulations of the innovation journey. We have dreams too. Of people sharing and collaborating with the same aim. To help the world! Join our dream today and contact us.

Our Team

We are a core team of four people. CEO Nigel Biggs; CTO & Founder Dr. Shakar Jafari; CFO & Commercial Director, Chris Budleigh and Engineering Director, Mike Stroud. We also have non exec director and medical physics expert Professor David Bradley and Business Advisor, Simon Devonshire OBE, Medical Advisor Professor Andy Nisbet and Healthcare Market Advisor George Sutherland.

In addition we have some great suppliers like Quadible Ltd for our software and some wonderful partners like the University of Surrey and its Mechanical Engineering Workshop with Mike Fishlock helping our reader concept implementation for research students. We also have Morgan Innovation and Technology Ltd as our Design Engineering Partner. Queen Alexandra Hospital in Portsmouth and the Royal Surrey County Hospital Guildford are our current NHS partners.

Our aim is build a network of people and organisations who want to work with us and with micro silica bead array radiation detection technology everywhere.
