Scientists Simon Goodyear, 52, and Matt Wooliscroft, 46, started Metrasens in 2005 to develop sensor technologies that improve conventional screening methods. Its devices are used to check patients for metal objects before MRI scans, to detect contraband in prisons and to stop confidential data being smuggled out of high-security facilities. The Malvern firm sells to 44 countries and exports rose to £9.3m last year.
