AgPlus Diagnostics Ltd.

AgPlus Diagnostics Ltd. has developed a rapid, handheld, low-cost diagnostic device designed to deliver quantitative results within 10 minutes. Designed to work in both clinical and non-clinical settings, it uses a patented electrochemical immunoassay in a microfluidic chip to detect the test substance, combined with a read-out from charged silver nanoparticles, which increase the sensitivity of the test and allow the use of smaller samples than other diagnostic systems.

MitaMed Ltd.

MitaMed Ltd.’s EndoVE allows for minimally invasive, non-thermal tumor ablation via the end of a standard endoscope. In conjunction with the delivery of a small dose of a chemotherapeutic, the device is placed at the tumor site, then delivers a series of eight, low-energy, electrical pulses directly to the tumor cells, increasing their porosity and thus boosting the absorption rate of the chemotherapy drug.

Respinova Ltd.

Respinova Ltd. has developed a noninvasive home-use device to help patients manage COPD’s debilitating symptoms. The PulseHaler is similar to continuous positive airway pressure devices used for sleep apnea, but it is designed to treat the very small terminal airways that are blocked as a result of COPD.
