Quadrant to float

Quadrant Healthcare is to float to market next month in a move that will raise pounds 30m of new money. It will be used to develop new applications for trehalose, a special sugar that allows desert plants to bloom again after years of drought. Quadrant's techniques use the sugar to control the release of drugs into the bloodstream. Quadrant is expected to make a loss of pounds 3m in the current year, but chief executive Iain Ross is now focusing specifically on pharmaceuticals.
