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
Performing routine blood tests right from the comfort of your own home could soon
be a reality, thanks to Avalun’s LabPad® mobile point-of-care device...
Ethera provides in situ indoor air purification
and monitoring systems that offer greater
sensitivity and selectivity at costs lower
than competing systems.
Fluoptics’ fluorescent tracers are used
with the Fluobeam® imaging system to
highlight details like tissue vascularization,
blocked veins, and tumor edges to within
300 microns’ accuracy—a boon to surgeons.
Apix Technology is helping make multigas analysis easier and more affordable with silicon-based labs-on-chip that are five to ten times more compact than the systems currently available.
Avalun’s LabPad® mobile point-of-care device
can perform a broad range of tests using a
simple drop of blood from the patient’s finger.
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.
