GLAM – a photonic-based point-of-care device for cancer diagnosis

Project

GLAM (glass-laser multiplexed biosensor) was a project supported by the Horizon 2020 EU research and innovation funding program, aimed at providing non-invasive detection of genitourinary cancer. The goal was to design and develop a diagnostic tool for detecting biomarkers in the urine and help oncologists make better treatment decisions.

SOLUTION

We participated in multidisciplinary R&D activities, targeting new sensor system development for health care and medical use. Our team focused on system design and the design of an integrated portable device based on novel photonic sensors based on laser microring resonators, as well as laser signal processing. The use of label-free photonic biosensors enabled ultra-sensitivity, simplicity of use, portability, multiplexing, and low cost.

Medical Device Design and Development

We specialize in designing and developing hardware, software, and mechanical solutions for cutting-edge electronic medical devices and digital health products. From wireless charging to softwareless design, our teams provide innovative solutions to common challenges in medical electronics, enabling reliable, practical, and safe products optimized for use in operating rooms and other hospital environments.

Firmwareless Motorized Medical Arm Position Control

Project

Interventional Systems is a medical equipment manufacturer that provides a robotics platform for micro-invasive interventions. They were designing an articulated arm for interventional radiologists and oncologists that could hold surgical equipment in a fixed position. This would remove the need for manual holding, reduce physical strain on the medical experts performing procedures, increase patient safety, and reduce intervention time.

SOLUTION

Our team designed and developed a softwareless solution for robotic arm control that helped avoid the rigorous process of software certification. We designed a wireless charging cradle that enables battery operation and contactless charging of the device. NCORE performed a thorough risk analysis and certified the device in compliance with the IEC 60601-1:2005+AMD1:2012 standard.
