Relief for epilepsy at the scale of a single cell

Researchers at Linköping University have developed in collaboration with French colleagues a small device that both detects the initial signal of an epileptic attack and doses a substance that effectively stops it. All this takes place where the signal arises – in an area of size 20×20 µm known as a “neural pixel”.

Iontronix at Venture Arena 2014

Iontronix is a spinoff based on research in the area of bio-electronics. The main product is a molecular pump that is able to pump bio-molecules at low rates and with very high precision. The pumps are already in use as laboratory devices in several places over the world. A large future application area is the use of the pump in a new pacemaker product, being able not only to raise the heart rate as is done by conventional electronic pacemakers but also to lower the rate when necessary. The yearly pacemaker market is approximately $5 Billion and it is expected that a substantial part of these pacemakers will need to be able to control the heart rate both up and down.

Iontronix is looking for an investor. A background from the biotech industry is desirable.
