In Memoriam: Roger Dixon 1959 – 2020

It is with great sadness that we learned of the death of Dr Roger Dixon last Saturday 6th June 2020.

Roger has been involved with Selfrag for over half a decade, becoming the first owner of a Lab on the African continent, dubbing his system ‘Thor’s Hammer’ after its ability to smash things with lightning. In the following years Roger became a firm advocate for our technology and was involved with many industrial projects in South Africa.

An outspoken character, Roger was a great scientist and a part of the Selfrag family. His presence will be missed.
