Aerion Bioscience
Pioneering early lung cancer screening and saving lives

The challenge with lung cancer lies in its late detection, often leading to unfortunate outcomes. Current screening methods like low-dose CT scans are costly and have radiation risks, while blood tests lack accuracy or are too expensive. Our solution offers a non-invasive blood test that detects lung cancer early with high sensitivity and specificity. This test, with its multi-protein panel, can identify even stage I cancer, improving survival rates and reducing unnecessary procedures.

Ago
Rapid assessment of aortic valve during surgery

AGO have developed a handy tool called the Aortic Root Pressurizing Device (ARPD) to help during heart surgeries. This device allows surgeons to check the success of aortic valve repairs while the heart is temporarily stopped. It helps avoid the need to restart the heart to check, which can be risky and time-consuming. The ARPD makes surgeries safer, quicker, and cheaper by allowing surgeons to verify their work during the operation. It's easy to use and disposable, so it doesn't add much hassle to the surgery process.

Occlunova
An implantable device for people with chronic atrial fibrillation (AF)

OCCLUNOVA introduces a novel solution for chronic atrial fibrillation (AF), a condition affecting millions worldwide where the heart's upper chambers beat irregularly. Their implantable device aims to prevent strokes associated with AF by sealing off the left atrial appendage (LAA), where blood clots often form. Unlike traditional methods, which can cause complications due to their rigid frame, OccluNova's design uses a flexible balloon to fully seal the LAA. This innovative approach minimizes risks like pericardial effusions and incomplete closure, offering a safer option for AF patients.

Hapticheart Solutions
Sense of touch solution for catheter-based cardiovascular procedures

HapticHeart Solutions is revolutionizing cardiac procedures by giving cardiologists a "sense of touch" during catheter-based surgeries. These surgeries, which are becoming more complex, often require delicate maneuvers inside the heart. Their wearable device translates signals from the cath lab into tactile feedback, allowing cardiologists to feel what's happening inside the patient's heart. This helps them navigate catheters more effectively and focus on critical aspects of the procedure, leading to safer and more efficient surgeries with better outcomes for patients.
