Leveraging our wide network of partners, we have curated numerous enabling technologies available for licensing and commercialisation across different industries and domains. Enterprises interested in these technology offers and collaborating with partners of complementary technological capabilities can reach out for co-innovation opportunities.

Universal Nanosatellite IoT Connectivity
A French technology provider is offering universal connectivity of its unique satellite IoT (Internet of Things) chipset at a highly accesible cost. The company's innovative nanosatellite constellation offers a new communication technology tailor-made for connected objects, making satallite-powered IoT services accessible to as many people as possible. The technology is simple to integrate, reliable, low-power and cost accessible. Backed by major players in the space industry, the company is looking for adopters such as IoT operators and connected object manufacturers seeking to offer their existing customers inexpensive worldwide connectivity and coverage, or to develop new and innovative hardware and software solutions for specific market verticals such as transport and logistics, maritime, personal tracking devices and smart agriculture.
Hypoallergenic Dye Compounds
Para-phenylenediamine (PPD) is a widely used chemical substance in hair dyes to give a natural look and prevent the loss of colour during shampooing and washing. Partially oxidised form of PPD, may cause contact allergic dermatitis in sensitive individuals and it was declared the Contact Allergen of the Year for 2006 by the American Contact Dermatitis Society (ACDS). Though manufacturers have begun para-toulenediamene sulfates (PTDS) as a substitute to PPD, research has shown that 43% of PPD-allergic patients also cannot tolerate PTDS. Therefore, there is a need for a new substitute for PPD.
Aluminium Fumarate Metal-Organic Frameworks (MOFs) for Water Capture and Dehumidification
Water capture and dehumidification of climate-controlled areas are typically performed in energy intensive processes with single use materials, or those that are difficult to regenerate. While these materials are effective in capturing water, the inability to recycle these materials efficiently, limits their applicability. Aluminium fumarate is a non-hazardous water capture material that can be regenerated under very favourable conditions. It is from a family of materials called Metal-Organic Frameworks (MOFs) which exhibit ultra-high micro-porosity and surface area. This high surface area allows for a large amount of water or other guest molecules to be attracted to the surface of the framework. Aluminium fumarate is also well suited for water capture due to its remarkable moisture and thermal stability that further prolongs the lifespan of the material in use.
Biodegradable Controlled Release Microparticles for Environmental Applications
Through a proprietary matrix encapsulation technique, active ingredients are incorporated into a polymer matrix. Then the matrix is machined into microparticles that contain high concentrations of the encapsulated actives. These microparticles can be incorporated into a secondary carrier matrix such as water, oil, hydrogel, polymer, or paint. In that way, they impart the special active ingredient controlled release properties to the secondary carrier matrix. Fragrances, essential oils, vitamins, surfactants, and preservatives are just a few examples of actives that can be encapsulated in this flexibly adaptable and applicable way.
Preferential Covered Stent for Embolic Prevention & Preserving Side Branch Perfusion
This is a membrane-coated stent covered with multiple flaps. The flaps are constructed in a way that they open up and allow perfusion into the areas where side branches are present, when positive pressure blood flows inside the coated stent and in non-branched area, they will be pushed against the vessel wall. It demonstrated significantly higher emboli prevention capability than the corresponding bare metal stent, while preserving more than 83% of the original flow of the external carotid artery.
Biodegradable Controlled Release Matrix Tablets for Environmental Applications
Using a proprietary matrix encapsulation technique, active ingredients are incorporated into a matrix made from a biodegradable polymer. Pesticides, biocides, corrosion inhibitors, enzymes, and bacteria are just some of the examples of the kinds of actives that can be encapsulated. Then the polymer is formed into tablets of various shapes and sizes. Each tablet can deliver its active ingredients into the environment over a predetermined time frame, with precisely controlled dosages to ensure the desired treatment effects. At the end of the treatment period the matrix is completely and safely degraded.
Selective Cancer Tracking Eradicator
Although photodynamic therapy (PDT) has been accepted as a reliable and minimal invasive clinical treatment for cancers, the treatment efficacy is hampered by limitations in cancer cell recognition, molecular imaging, in situ monitoring and depth of light penetration. In light of these challenges, increasing attention is being directed to two-photon absorption photodynamic therapy (TPA-PDT) since near-infrared (NIR) photons can penetrate deeper into tissue and re-emit energy sharply without it being absorbed by the cell. Several TPA-PDT photosensitisers have been reported in the literature, but only very few of those compounds are cancer cell-specific. The invention introduces a novel and smart TPA-PDT agent called gadolinium porphyrinate (Gd-N) comprising formula (I). Their comprehensive studies have shown that Gd-N injected into the blood stream can recognise cancer cells and through photoexcitation inhibit the growth of cancer cells. Gd-N can serve as a blueprint for the development of practical next-generation smart PDT agents with the use of lanthanide porphyrinates for locating, imaging, tracking and obliterating cancer cells. Another embodiment of this invention provides a new generation of PDT agents based on porphyrin-lanthanide complexes (formula II)) with specific functional groups which are conjugated with integrinαβ3 isoform-specific peptides. The porphyrin-lanthanide complexes are able to significantly interrupt bladder cancer tumour growth that specific binds to "integrinαβ3 isoform" with responsive emission for imaging.
Signature Biometrics for Privacy-friendly Authentication
Connecting a person's biological and virtual identities a long-standing challenge. The electronic signature is the gate to secure online transactions. However, the authentication of users and the storage of private identification data is not reliably solved.This patented pen device offers a reliable, convenient, and privacy-friendly solution that allows everybody to use their signature as a biometric identifier in the digital world. Traditional signatures or even simple handwritten gestures require a cooperative attitude by the signatory, and they are extremely hard to forge. The solution consists of highly sensitive and secure hardware and an AI-based matching algorithm.The main target sectors are financial, telecommunication, and governmental. The technology can be used as a second-factor authentication in Windows 10 login via our self-developed Credential Provider. It provides a secure and seamless login experience on any device. The innovation can be integrated into the system of a remote Qualified Electronic Signature Creation service provider as an additional factor of authentication.
Low-Cost, Low-Power CMOS Hybrid Thermal Imaging Sensor
This technology offer is a low-cost, shutterless thermal imaging sensor with no self-heating, based on a unique, patented CMOS-compatible process; it is offered in an advanced proprietary Wafer Level Vacuum Package (WLVP). The sensor is capable of detecting long wave infrared (LWIR) light, and has smaller pixels than a conventional thermopile-based sensor. It is easy to calibrate and has low power consumption. As the sensor is CMOS process compatible, it is scalable to high volume production, resulting in low cost fabrication.
