Obducat works with Nano Imprint Lithography, a technique to create small features on substrates. They give the substrate properties that normally are not inherent to that material. Possible properties include Anti-Reflective, Self-Cleaning, Anti-Microbial, Friction Reducing and Fluidics. Many companies can provide similar features, but through patented process Obducat can structure substrates up to 0,5 x 0,5 meters to companies all over the world.
Spermosens is developing a patent-pending diagnostic device for male infertility, looking beyond the conventional sperm count and morphology. A first of a kind technology, Spermosens uses recombinant human egg-cell proteins to probe the fertilization potential of sperms electrochemically. Further it has implications in the suitable choice of Assisted Reproductive Technology, thereby reducing the time to conception and saving on costs and number of ART or IVF cycle required for the patients.
Elonroad is a hightech electric road concept that auto charges all types of electric vehicles when parked as well as when driving. Electric roads extend driving range and reduce the need of large and heavy batteries. The company is currently building a 1 km electric road with its technology to test and demonstrate the electric road for city buses in Lund 2020-2022. Further ongoing projects are automatic parking chargers and operation and payment solutions for charging infrastructure.
Anatomic Studios works at the intersection of design, fashion and 3D-technology, creating personalized prosthetic covers that empower and inspire amputees to wear and show off their prosthesis. Anatomic Studios believe in design that celebrates the uniqueness of a human body, personality and style. With their prosthetic covers they aim to bridge the gap between fashion and function, offering a whole new experience in wearing prosthesis and inviting users to be a part of the creative process.
DiaPures filtermaterial is designed for phosphorus traps in private sewagesystems, based on a naturally porous material covered in a coating with phosphorus sorbing properties. The material does not age and clogg and has therefore a long lasting function. DiaPures goal is to purify waste water from phosphorus regardless of whether people live in areas with a high protection area or not, because it cares for nature and forms a natural cycle; what previously was waste, can be of use again.
Greinon develops a multi-functional Smart City Lighting Management System with a vision to create green, efficient, and safe cities. They develop basic sensors like temperature, humidity, air-pressure, vibration sensors, but also more complex sensors within motion detection: radar, PIR, or combination with an option to have a Machine Learning support that would allow more advance functionalities. Greinon core focus in the sensors area is the motion detection for the City Lighting management system.
