Venture Manager – Submillimetre Diagnostic Endoscopy Device

We are building Micro-Scanner, a venture developing millimetre-scale endoscopy capabilities to allow highly accurate visualization of small lumens and body cavities to diagnose early-stage disease.

Are you the driven entrepreneur who can build and lead this venture as the Venture Manager?

The Invention
Endoscopy creates an image of organs inside the body, but endoscopes can only enter cavities bigger than their diameter. Therefore, small cavities (<1.2mm) are currently impossible to visualize, for example, distal bronchioles of the lung, the pancreatic duct, fallopian tubes, or small joints.

The micro-scanner is a sub-millimetre (<0.5mm) sized endoscopic catheter that works without loss of visual clarity. It uses an electrothermal micro-cantilever with an imaging fibre optic that vibrates up and down to scan the target. The proof-of-concept has shown that it is possible to produce a clear 2D image with a 1D fibre. The next step is further validation and product optimization.
