Technologies for healthcare
CEA Tech institute Leti pioneered DNA chips for diagnostics two decades ago. Today, the institute possesses unrivalled know-how in MEMS and NEMS for healthcare applications. Leti’s broad knowledge of 200 mm silicon technology, lensless imaging, microfluidics, biochemical sensors, and signal processing position the institute to offer its partners—manufacturers and clinical practitioners—integrated, miniaturized solutions in the form of labs-on-chip. The institute’s experience with biomaterials for healthcare has led to the development of nanovectors for targeted drug delivery and enhancements to other therapies (cell encapsulation, wound monitoring, etc.).
Several startups have been created to develop and commercialize the institute’s portable microsystems, in particular in the field of medical diagnostics.
ALL TECHNOLOGY PLATFORMS
An innovative system for monitoring travelers’ stress levels has been developed. The system automatically assesses travelers’ stress levels and determines the types of transportation being used. The data can be used to generate real-time recommendations for the optimal travel solution.
MIT and Leti, a CEA Tech institute, co-developed a microsystem capable of analyzing cells’ mechanical signatures in detail. Their research was published in Nature Biotechnology.
Iprasense’s new Cytonote Counter does more than let you observe cells in culture—it assesses cell viability, providing unparalleled precision and reproducibility.
The Diabeloop portable artificial pancreas, which combines a continuous blood glucose sensor and an insulin pump, is slated for commercialization in 2017. The system also leverages dose calculation software developed by Leti, a CEA Tech institute.
Aryballe Technologies uses a combination of biosensors, databases, and signal processing to develop multi-purpose electronic noses for both commercial and consumer applications.
How to collaborate with CEA Tech teams ?
CEA is a French government-funded technological research organisation in four main areas: low-carbon energies, defense and security, information technologies and health technologies. A prominent player in the European Research Area, it is involved in setting up collaborative projects with many partners around the world.
