MicroPET

MicroPET is developing a portable method to generate radioisotopes at the point of care for use in Positron Emission Tomography (PET). MicroPET’s technology requires minimal radiation shielding and is faster, cheaper, and safer than conventional methods. The company is poised to revolutionize the use of positron-emitting materials in oncology, neurology, pharmacokinetics, and biomedical research.

Leveraging decades of experience in surface-acoustic-wave (SAW) technology, SenSanna has developed a new class of SAW devices allowing remote unpowered sensing of physical parameters (for example, temperature, mechanical strain, voltage, current, and deposited mass) with fast temporal and spatial resolution. Initial applications include manufacturing tooling, aviation, and the electric grid.
