Mass spectrometer unveiled at Southampton University

Help

A mass spectrometer used to research cancer by testing blood has been unveiled at Southampton University.

The money for the £500,000 machine came from the people of Guernsey, with island businessman Derek Coates donating half the total needed.

The campaign was started by retired surgeon Roger Allsopp, who became the oldest man ever to swim the English Channel in August as part of his efforts to raise money to buy the equipment.
