3Scan Inc.

Pathology workflow hasn’t changed much since the field began some 100 years ago – tissue is sectioned with a microtome, mounted to a glass slide, and placed into a microscope – but the process could dramatically change for the better, thanks to the digital Knife Edge Scanning Microscope from 3Scan Inc. What has traditionally been a manual and qualitative process, KESM facilitates with high throughput, quantified image analysis and computation of tissue sliced as thin as 1 micron.

Valorem Surgical LLC

Another player in the rapidly growing minimally invasive approach to lumbar spine fusion has received the green light from the FDA. In January, Valorem Surgical LLC received 510(k) clearance for its MaxiMIS Spinal Fixation System, which provides stabilization and immobilization of spinal segments. MaxiMIS was specifically engineered to minimize tissue disruption, blood loss, and trauma.

HiberGene Diagnostics Ltd.

Dublin-based start-up HiberGene Diagnostics Ltd. aims to create rapid, accurate, and simple diagnostic tests for infectious diseases based on LAMP (loop-mediated isothermal amplification) technology, which uses nucleic acid amplification to identify target genes.
