ASG Logo_​​​Advanced Silicon Group (ASG) was formed in 2015 to commercialize silicon nanotechnology co-developed by ASG employees.

Advanced Silicon Group

Advanced Silicon Group is taking nanowire biosensors from concept to reality. Using novel patented and proprietary silicon nanowire technology, ASG is developing biosensors capable of rapidly detecting and measuring dilute concentrations of multiple proteins from a single drop of sample solution. We are initially targeting the detection and measurement of proteins in biopharmaceutical manufacturing where our technology should enable better detection and control of impurities resulting in lower cost medications with fewer side effects. Once developed we envision many potential applications in medicine and the life sciences including in areas such as cancer therapeutic diagnostics where more timely and accurate diagnosis can lead to better treatment and longer better lives for patients. Our long term vision is to make diagnostics low cost and rapid so that more people have access to good health and medical care.

  2. a 90% reduction in cost to produce vs. existing patch pumps, making it cost-competitive with pens,
  3. active control, Bluetooth connectivity and sensor-augmented delivery; and
  4. the potential to deliver multiple medications from a single device.
FF-Final Logo_Flow Forward is developing a novel approach to rapidly establish high-quality vascular access sites for hemodialysis.

Flow Forward Medical

Flow Forward Medical, Inc is developing the Arteriovenous Fistula Eligibility (AFE) System™, a novel medical device that rapidly dilates peripheral veins for use in creating reliable and durable arteriovenous fistula (AVF) vascular access sites for hemodialysis. The AFE System is a small, temporary, external blood pump system that stimulates veins to enlarge using rapid blood flow, making more patients eligible for an AVF and increasing success rates after AVF surgery. Establishment of a durable and reliable AVF reduces morbidity and mortality in hemodialysis patients, as well as the overall cost of their care.

Gel-4-Med Logo_Gel4Med, the Smart Materials Company paving the way to the future of regenerative medicine

Gel4Med

Gel4Med is preclinical stage company focused at advancing tissue regeneration utilizing its smart materials technology. Founded out of the Harvard Innovation Lab (Harvard University) and M2D2 (University Massachusetts), Gel4Med has raised seed funding from notable investors like Peter Thiel, NIH, NSF, DoD to fund our products engine. Gel4Med's will initially focus on improving the outcomes in integument tissue regeneration, a large market ripe for innovation. In 2020, we will launch our first product that aims to enable surgeons with a topical antimicrobial regenerative matrix technology to address treatment needs of over 8 Million Americans with difficult to treat infected wounds.

Launch-Pad Logo_LaunchPad Medical is developing adhesive solutions for bone repair.

LaunchPad Medical

LaunchPad Medical is developing adhesive solutions for bone repair. Patients and doctors desire better products to repair bone that provide immediate load-bearing strength to achieve a faster and less painful return to activity. Tetranite® is an injectable, synthetic biomaterial and will be the world’s first bioresorbable bone adhesive that has instant adhesive strength to treat fractured bone and stabilize metal hardware in compromised bone through less invasive procedures. The commercialization of this unique biomaterial will revolutionize treatment options and improve the standard of care.

Liv-Onyx Logo_committed to saving people’s lives by reducing the spread of infections through effective hand hygiene in healthcare and common public settings

LivOnyx

Did you know that 1 out of 25 patients that go into the hospital come out with an infection they didn’t have to start with, and those infections could be largely prevented with better hand hygiene? LivOnyx studied the behavior behind why something as simple as washing hands, which turns out to be more complex than you would imagine, doesn’t happen as it ‘should’ in healthcare settings. Rejecting the hand hygiene status quo, LivOnyx is developing a novel, fully automated hand sanitization device and antiseptic, that will be at every patient’s bedside where you need it, in order to sanitize and dry hands the right way, every time in just 3-5 seconds.

DREAMIES offer improved performance and ease-of-use as compared with current commercial earmuffs and earplugs. DREAMIES are built in a range of sizes, with ear cup shape and sound filtering characteristics designed for care of this special neonate population.

NPT Logo_Nuclease Probe Technologies harnesses the power of enzymes produced by bacteria to determine the most effective antibiotic therapy required to treat patients with a life-threatening condition called Sepsis

Nuclease Probe Technologies

Nuclease Probe Technologies harnesses the power of enzymes produced by bacteria to determine the most effective antibiotic therapy required to treat patients with a life-threatening condition called Sepsis. Sepsis is a leading cause of disease and death worldwide. 270,000 people die each year in the US and Sepsis costs US hospitals over $24 Billion annually. NPT delivers gold standard lab results 10 X faster than current laboratory instruments allowing for early intervention with targeted antibiotics. Early treatment has been shown to save lives, make patients better faster, and reduce length of stay.
