XEnd Medical Systems is developing nested, thin-walled needles that reduce contamination by skin microbes during eye surgery. These will reduce the potential for loss of vision.
XEnd Medical Systems mission is to reduce the incidence of infections caused by hypodermic needle injections. Invented by a world-renowned eye surgeon, the “Antibacterial Hypodermic Needle and Syringe (AHNS)” is designed to prevent bacteria on the surface from being transported to the body’s interior by a hypodermic needle. This is a serious problem for patients receiving injections of medication into spaces with little ability to fight infection, including the eye, certain joints, cerebrospinal fluid and any injection where the patient is severely immunosuppressed. The AHNS is expected to drive better patient outcomes and to sharply lower treatment and liability costs.
Verde seeks to create renewable energy by pre-treating green and woody waste to more efficiently create a sustainable source of fuel in the form of biomethane.

NovaBio is developing a coil-shaped and biodegradeable device that holds together tendons and ligaments that distributes tension, decreasing risk of reruptures and the need for revision surgeries after ligament and tendon repair.
iVeena has multiple products at various stages of commercialization that focus on a range of eye issues. The company was awarded TAP funding through USTAR at the start of 2017 to support their minimally invasive glaucoma surgical (MIGS) device called the Schlemm’s stent-sieve. S3 helps control pressure in the eye by draining fluid naturally through the Schlemm’s canal. A stent is strategically placed in the eye to continuously drain fluid and control the pressure that damages vision following cataract and other optical surgery.
