We have over 30 years experience of radio-tracking and radio tag manufacture. Biotrack arose from practical biological research at Oxford University in the late 1970s and became a business in 1980, following a move by the founder team to Cambridge. The origin and development of Biotrack is rooted in wildlife and conservation research, and Biotrack Ltd. (as it became in 1994) is still run by dedicated biologists who are actively involved in fieldwork. Practical radio-tracking is inseparable from the development and manufacture of high quality radio tags. Research and development are continuous, as shown by the high reliability and increased performance of ever smaller tags during the last few years. Biotrack has grown steadily from the start, attracting new customers through the personal recommendations of researchers who were already customers. In 1995 we moved into attractive buildings on a rural site, which are being expanded along with our on-going technological achievements enhanced by our Lotek relationship.
In 2010 Biotrack has 21 members of staff. Of these, 15 people are involved in manufacturing, testing, R & D, and work mostly behind the scenes. Your initial points of contact are listed here so that you know who they are and what they do. Most initial enquiries are answered by Sarah.
