Award winning cancer research – KIT spin-off amcure GmbH convinces at the CyberOne Award with a new approach for the pancreatic cancer therapy

amcure-Gründer Dr. Matthias Klaften und Dr, Alexandra Matzke

The amcure GmbH in Karlsruhe was awarded with the second place of the Cyber One Award on June 12th, 2012 for its new active substance against pancreatic cancer. Furthermore, the amcure GmbH was awarded the renowned special prize of the state of Baden-Württemberg. The four company founders of the young spin-off of the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology work on the active substance AM001, which could open up new possibilities of treating cancer of the pancreas in the future.

Safe in a risky environment – KIT spin-off Opasca develops systems for personal protection for special applications

Linear Accelerator isolated on white background

The field of sensor based environment detection offers a wide and interesting spectrum of application areas. OPASCA Systems GmbH, a technology oriented spin-off of the KIT founded in 2001, has specialized in the development of intelligent sensor based systems and solutions in the area of person and object detection. The focus of the young firm is human protection in safety critical compounds, especially in medical high-tech establishments, such as with radiation therapy, x-rays, computed tomography (CT), and magnet resonance tomography (MRT).

In an emergency, every second counts. Many first responders, however, do not know how to behave properly in a critical situation, for example, when finding an unconscious person. Uncertainty often prevents a quick reanimation. Although often the right actions such as controlling the breathing and the pulse are taken only about half of the first responders recognize a cardiovascular failure or immediately start with reanimation measures on the victim.

The color test – KIT spin-off Visolas produces tunable sources of light based on polymers for spectroscopy

KIT-Spin-off Visolas GmbH

The need for comfortably operable, precise, and in their color settable sources of light for the optical spectroscopy in research and industry is enormous due to the range of applications. For analyses in nuclear physics to environmental technology, dye lasers are the ideal source of radiation. However, they are so large, complicated in usage, and cost and maintenance intensive that their use has so far been limited to niche applications. Users therefore use systems, which filter out the required light from white light as an alternative. These systems work inefficiently and are not implementable for all applications.
