Nix, Inc.

Nix is developing a wearable, single-use patch that monitors hydration in real-time, without the need for a power-source or companion device/app. Using a proprietary hydrogel developed at Harvard University, Nix’s biosensor detects changes in an individual’s sweat as he or she dehydrates and rehydrates, including the level of electrolyte losses, indicating when to drink, what to drink, and how much to drink. Dehydration is particularly problematic among athletes, military personnel, laborers, and the elderly, causing a reduction in performance and an increase in hospitalization. Nix’s initial target is the estimated 60 million U.S. amateur and professional athletes, which the Company believes represent a $4.8 billion total addressable market for its product. Learn more…

MOBILion Systems

MOBILion Systems Inc. has developed technology that can separate and identify previously undetectable, clinically significant molecules within minutes, enabling far more accurate disease diagnosis, biomarker discovery, drug discovery, and clinical trial design among other potential applications. Today, liquid-chromatography mass-spectrometry (LC-MS), sometimes used with ion mobility (LC-IM-MS), instruments are most commonly used for molecular isolation and identification, where the LC and IM components isolate metabolites while the MS component identifies them. Due to physical constraints, LC-IM is limited in its ability to isolate molecules that are small, chemically similar or in limited quantity. In addition, LC-MS and LC-IM-MS are complicated, time consuming processes with limited throughput. As such, the widespread use of LC-MS and LC-IM-MS is limited, particularly in clinical settings. MOBILion?s Structures for Lossless Ion Manipulation (SLIM) technology eliminates the physical constraints encountered by LC and LC-IM, enabling unprecedented throughput, ion separation and ion identification, even in isomers with the same molecular structures. These advancements enable MOBILion to develop simpler instruments with significantly higher degrees of sensitivity and accuracy, while maintaining a low cost and high throughput (hours instead of weeks or months), greatly increasing the commercial viability of the technology.  Learn more…

Shield Diagnostics Corp.

Antibiotic resistance is a rapidly growing problem for the treatment of infections, as the broad spectrum use of antibiotics has substantially increased the rate of resistance development. Consequentially, the number of deaths due to antibiotic resistance has increased 7x in the past 5 years and is projected to reach 1.1 million by 2023. Coincidentally, the number of new antibiotics being developed has dropped significantly, as antibiotic development struggles from lack of economic incentives. Therefore, there is a growing need for diagnostic technologies that more accurately determine which antibiotics should be used and when. Shield Diagnostics has developed an infectious disease diagnostics platform to combat the onset of antibiotic resistance, helping clinicians diagnose and treat antibiotic resistant infections at orders of magnitude more accurately, more quickly and at a lower cost. Shield Diagnostics’ tests are currently being used to diagnose antibiotic resistance in gonorrhea (Target-NG) and the Company is developing a diagnostic test that can diagnose infections causing sepsis (Target-SP). Shield Dx’s platform can identify an infection in 3-5 hours, which is incredibly important for diseases like sepsis where turnaround time is crucial to patient survival (1 extra hour to appropriate antibiotic treatment increases mortality 7%). Learn more…
