New Products Taking Center Stage in Life Sciences Discovery and Technology
Horacio D. Espinosa’s promising young company, infinitesimal (Skokie, IL) barely had time to put its new name on the door before receiving both a position on SLAS2017 Innovation AveNEW, which awards prime exhibit-floor space to emerging, start-up companies, and an SLAS New Product Award (NPA), which focuses on innovations that offer exceptional market impact and opportunity. Each year companies flock to SLAS to broadcast news of their latest ideas and leverage the Society’s unparalleled support for entrepreneurs in life sciences discovery and technology.
For infinitesimal, the exhibit space and award generated valuable awareness, validation and feedback from throughout the community for the company’s Nanofountain Probe single-cell electroporation system (NFP-E). “It is always difficult to appreciate how hard development of technology start-ups are,” says Espinosa, an SLAS Technology author and former editorial board member. “We discovered a lot of interest and excitement for the NFP-E at the SLAS2017 Exhibition. Finding that kind of feedback is invaluable.”
