Description

A research institute from northern Germany, active in metrology, has developed a traceable, spatial calibration technology which helps to determine calibration of therapeutic ultrasound devices factors more easily. The system makes use if thermochromic foils which are multilayer material combinations that are applied on a carrier material. When heated by external input, e.g. ultrasound, its color changes. The bigger the heat input, the larger is the radius of the discoloration (see image). The result contains 36 single measurements on the foil which characterize the therapeutic areas when applying different settings. A digital algorithm examines the intensity and the specific calibration factors of the different radii. As the demand for ultrasound technologies has increased over the last years, a routinely quality assurance of the devices has become indispensable to guarantee a successful therapy and improved safety for clients. The research institute is looking for licensees as suppliers of medical equipment and its maintenance interested to use the offered product as licensee.

Advantages and innovations

The following advantages are offered: • Precise spatial resolution of the heat input • Greater quality assurance • Time savings in the calibration procedure

How it works

  • Tell us about yourself
  • We’ll discuss with you
  • We put the right partners in touch

EEN help you find the right partner, rather than you going it alone.

Our role is to review and collate the most suitable submissions, and then send them to the client who posted the opportunity. We consult with you, and the client, to make the process professional and easy.

These are live opportunities. Your registration of interest on the site is just like a professional approach to a business at a networking event. To stand the best chance of success, make your submission really sing. Sell why the client who posted the opportunity should work with you. Excite them. Ask questions. Try and avoid copy and pasting words from elsewhere.

Once the client has chosen their partner, we'll introduce them over email and keep in touch with both parties to see how it's going. Sometimes things progress quickly. Sometimes because of changing priorities for either party, things progress slowly, but you never know - your next big business break could start right here.
