Presenting Companies' Descriptions:
InPRO Medical
InPRO Medical is developing a solution for hospitals to eliminate hospital-acquired pressure ulcers. Our solution provides an integrated analytics platform in which data is collected through a suite of wearable sensors. Using our tool care providers can continuously monitor and visualize pressure ulcer risks for each patient and implement a protocol to ensure patients are repositioned in optimal intervals to minimize the risk of developing pressure ulcers. Our technology provides hospitals significant cost savings of up to $100K per patient per stay and improves the quality of life of the patients.

Kode Biotech
Kode Biotech USA is the US subsidiary of Kode Biotech, based in Auckland, New Zealand. We have developed an easy, fast, versatile, and controllable technology to modify biological surfaces (cells, viruses...) and non-biological surfaces (stainless steel, plastics...). Being able to easily change surface functionality has broad applications in therapeutics, diagnostics, and consumer products. There are several Kode-based products in the R&D and diagnostics markets generating revenue, one about to start Phase I/II clinical trials, with other prototype products being evaluated or in development. Our mission is to get our technology licensed broadly as a core component that enables the next generation of therapeutics, diagnostics, and high-value consumer products.

Vax-Immune’s LabReady® is a unique platform technology that eliminates false negative cultures by bringing the lab to the patient. LabReady® makes the diagnosis of infection faster, simpler, easier, less expensive, and more accurate. It re-imagines the laboratory where everything happens before the sample arrives. LabReady® is a proprietary, portable, disposable, hand-held device. It collects, processes, and grows the sample beginning at the patient and through transport, so when it arrives at the laboratory the infection can be diagnosed. LabReady® strips out the inefficient time lapse between sample collection and diagnosis. Vax-Immune re-imagines a world where infection is diagnosed and treated anywhere, anytime, and in the process lives are saved and costs are reduced. LabReady® -- Taking the lab to the point of care®
