Discover more about our Partners

We are proud to have partnered with the following prestigious institutions.


Based in Helsinki, Finland, MEGIN is the global leader for Magnetoencephalography (MEG) technology, a non-invasive, functional brain mapping solution for the diagnostic workup, treatment strategy and intervention of neurological conditions. Specialists from close to one hundred sites from around the world have used their MEG technology to study pathological and eloquent areas of the brain in patients diagnosed with neurological disorders such as epilepsy, brain tumors, autism, Alzheimer’s and vascular malformations.

MEGIN is a Croton Healthcare Company.

Royal Holloway


The Department of Physics at Royal Holloway, University of London, has world-leading expertise in superconducting quantum technologies. Researchers led by Professor Victor Petrashov, carried out fundamental research in quantum physics that led to the design of a novel, very sensitive magnetic field detector.

This new device, the HyQUID™, is broadly similar in functionality to existing generic SQUID (Superconducting Quantum Interference Device) technology, but with significant advantages in overall performance. Importantly, it is also simpler to fabricate and calibrate.

Under licence from RHUL, the HyQUID™ is now a key component in York Instruments’ suite of sensor products.

Potvin Foundation


Founded in 2017, the Potvin Foundation fills a critical need to support concussions in children by driving awareness, education, research and technology and advocacy in youth sports through the ‘Head Smart’ movement. The Foundation works to educate and assist families while also funding research and new technologies to enable effective concussion diagnoses and treatment in children.

York Instruments is delighted to partner with the Potvin Foundation to help bring functional brain imaging technology to the field of concussion diagnosis and treatment planning for youth sports.

Institution of Engineers


The IET is one of the world’s largest engineering institutions with over 168,000 members in 150 countries. It is also the most multidisciplinary – reflecting the increasingly diverse nature of engineering in the 21st century. The IET is working to engineer a better world by inspiring, informing and influencing members, engineers and technicians, and all those who are touched by, or touch, the work of engineers.

Joining the IET as an Enterprise Partner in the summer of 2018 made perfect sense for York Instruments – both to invest in the professional development of our teams and to leverage the expertise of the IET for our rapidly growing business.

Institute of Physics


The Institute of Physics (IOP) is a leading scientific membership society working to advance physics for the benefit of all. Their worldwide membership gathers, inspires, guides, represents and celebrates all who share a passion for physics. IOP also engages with policymakers and the public to increase awareness and understanding of the value that physics holds for all of us.

York Instruments has been awarded one of six 2018 Business Start-Up Awards from the IOP for the development of HYQUIDS for use in research and healthcare. Representatives from the company received their award at a Parliamentary reception in London on Tuesday 16 October 2018.

University of Texas Southwestern


UT Southwestern’s Department of Radiology is a world-class radiology department, characterized by its ability to translate innovations in imaging, information technologies, and image-guided therapies to optimize patient outcomes. York Instrument’s has partnered with this exceptional team on the use of HyQUID™’s in the application of magnetoencephalography (MEG), and it’s use in detecting traumatic brain injury. Working closely together, UT Southwestern became one the of the first sites to install the TRIUX neo, a magnetoencephalography device, from sister company MEGIN.
