On the road to innovation through automation
For us, innovating actually means making a serious contribution to the solution of real problems, by exploiting smarter and smarter technologies, and today the potential of Industry 4.0 too. For this reason we are actively engaged in constant and multidisciplinary research, which generates cutting-edge devices and numerous patents.
TWO RESEARCH AREAS
MEDICAL NAVIGATION TECHNOLOGY
In the field of medical navigation technology, we strive to enhance a vast range of interventional and surgical procedures, through 3D image processing and virtual and augmented reality techniques.
AUTOMATION FOR MOLECULAR DIAGNOSTICS
We design and develop new devices to automate advanced genetic/molecular diagnostics methods, which are fundamental to the study of the human genome and a basis for the development of personalised therapies.
We carry out regional, national, and European research projects and we team up with highly skilled partners, combining different ideas and knowledge and capitalising on every member’s expertise.
We collaborate, among others, with the University and Polytechnic of Bari, Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna (School of Advanced Studies) of Pisa, the University Campus Bio-Medico of Rome, CNR (national research council), Casa Sollievo della Sofferenza Hospital.
Moreover, we are an industrial partner of two Industry 4.0 competence centres, Artes 4.0 and Meditech, which are under the supervision of Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna and the University of Naples.
