1 in 20 babies are born with a genetic disorder. Prenatal diagnostic tests require procedures with a 1 in 200 chance of miscarriage and a 3-week waiting time for results. bSure's proprietart technology enables the detection of genetic disorders within hours from a simple maternal blood test. In the US over 2.5 million women receive genetic testing and a total of 4 million women can benefit with potential revenues reaching $900Mn by 2008 and $280Bn by 2013
Light Blue Optics
Light Blue Optics has developed ground-breaking holographic technology, which will prower a new generation of pocket-sized digital video projectors.
Time and cost saving integrated detection technologies are in huge demand, with the focus on technologies offering increased speed and sensitivity and reduced size and cost. Owlstone introduces an innovative sensor technology shrinking the full functionality of conventional instrumentation onto a chip. It uses cutting edge micro-electro-mechanical-system (MEMS) manufacturing to achieve a revolutionary size reduction, with benefits in terms of size, speed, sensitivity, power consumption and cost. This technology allows us to offer the most highly integrated solutions for a variety of analysis needs.
