Sandbox Semiconductor‘s patent-pending technology, Recipe Optimization for Deposition and Etching (“RODEo”) uses kinetic process models and statistical analysis to reduce time and cost of microchip fabrication by a factor of three compared to industry standards. Our mission is to build the best software tools for semiconductor process development.
NovoThelium has developed a technology that enables women to regenerate a nipple made from their own cells after a mastectomy. The technology preserves the unique native proteins and complex submicron level tissue architecture of the nipple. The technology can be applied to current or past nipple reconstructions.
