Speeding innovation for industry
Human health and the environment
Mitigating the impact of environmental factors like air and water pollution on public health is one of today’s major challenges. CEA Tech is addressing this challenge in three ways. First, CEA Tech is developing different types of sensors to analyze pollutant concentrations and detect and monitor specific gases and particulate matter so that alerts and corrective measures can be set up if a given threshold is exceeded.CEA Tech is also helping to develop carbon-free energy sources (PV solar, solar thermal, and embedded batteries to promote the widespread adoption of electric vehicles, for example) with the overall goal of reducing the pollutants released into the atmosphere. Last, CEA Tech has built up specialist knowledge in nanosafety and protection to limit the potential impacts of nanomaterials handling and implementation on public health throughout the product lifecycle.
CEA Tech’s digital companion was selected in a call for projects to invent the solutions that will shape tomorrow’s hospitals. The first robots will be developed in conjunction with Nantes University Medical Center.
LNHB, a laboratory of List, a CEA Tech institute, helped develop a transportable primary calibration instrument for radiopharmaceuticals.
A method for generating personalized calculations of the doses received by individual patients during image-guided radiation therapy was developed in research conducted under the AID-IGRT project, backed by France’s national research agency (ANR). Ultimately, the method will help improve medical imaging protocols and reduce doses.
Leti, a CEA Tech institute, has developed non-cooled spectrometric detector that can clearly distinguish breast tumor tissue from healthy tissue in mice at a glance.
Aryballe Technologies uses a combination of biosensors, databases, and signal processing to develop multi-purpose electronic noses for both commercial and consumer applications.
