UMass Lowell Startups

The New Venture Development is currently working with a number of UMass Lowell startups.

Incubated in-house

  • AquaTerrene - AquaTerrene is development a portable probe that can perform quick, on-site water analysis, determining concentrations of heavy metals, sediments and soil in samples. The company is currently testing its device out in the field.

  • Raywatch - Raywatch is currently development a flexible thin film radiation detector for applications in the medical radiation diagnostics and therapeutics space as well as for homeland security, and defense.

  • Visium Medical - Visium Medical is developing a disposable, low cost, Catheter-based Ultrasound (CBU) platform with first focus on a novel catheter that generates Ultrasound images and monitors temperature from the distal tip. These probes are easy to integrated and to maintain smaller size diameters than other US catheters. Visium Medical will prioritize the cardiology segment, specifically the Afib Ablation segment providing more minimally invasive devices and integration of diagnostic capability with surgical devices for cardiology.


  • Invitrometrix - Invitrometrix is working on game-changing technology for the pharmaceutical industry.  They are developing cell-based sensors that can monitor real-time biological changes, in response to different drugs. The device allows for research on various types of cells, like normal, healthy cells or cancer cells, to pinpoint potential side effects of drugs early on.

  • Weave Visual Analytics - Weave is building an online platform for data visualization. Users, regardless of their data experience, can render visualizations for any available data. It can also handle multilevel modeling, for more in-depth analytics.
