Since Ionica Sciences was founded by Dr. Omar Green and Dr. Joel Tabb in 2013, we have been developing a platform disease diagnostic that has the flexibility to detect vector borne, sexually transmitted, and neurological diseases, among others. Combining well established spectroscopic methods, with new materials tailored for use this setting, and statistical methods, this approach has the potential to change how many diseases are diagnosed.
Their initial target is Lyme disease, the fastest growing vector borne disease in the United States, according to the CDC. The improved test, IonLyme, will provide clinicians critical information not available to them currently, allow Ionica to demonstrate the principle of the platform, and rapidly expand the diseases that can be identified using this cutting edge technology.

Based on a recent survey, hospital executives said finding cost savings to meet their current-year objectives is their top challenge.
The supply chain—more specifically, inventory and order management processes—is one place to find those savings. A study from the International Journal of Supply Chain Management shows that inventory and order management costs account for 61 percent of total supply chain costs (or $61 million per year for a typical large healthcare provider).
At ORLink, they know all hospitals want to control their surgical inventory spend. But the monster under the bed is the surgical preference card. So they set out to build a tools set to help control time, tools and materials.
The concept started when their founder, Dr Wayne Colin moved his preference cards from one hospital to another. During the resulting time and hassle he realized that the problem was the preference card itself. And he set out to do something about it.

Zetagen Therapeutics Inc., is an early stage regenerative medicine company that is creating bone regeneration solutions for a number of high volume clinical applications for use by orthopedic surgeons. Based on technology developed at SUNY-Upstate Medical University, Zetagen's product addresses the large unmet need for devices that promote safe and robust bone growth in the $4B bone regeneration market. The Zetagen bone regeneration device grows bone by activating a novel molecular pathway in mesenchymal stem cells. The serendipitous discovery of this pathway has led to the commercialization by Zetagen of the first-ever, small molecule-based osteo-inductive technology. As opposed to other products on the market that contain biologic growth
factors, which have declined in use precipitously due to high cancer risk and other side effects, Zetagen's solution is more effective at growing bone, has a unique safety profile, and is significantly less costly to manufacture.
