The Industrial Partnership Office at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) presents a monthly webinar through the Technology and Market Discovery program introducing LLNL technologies to individual entrepreneurs and angel investors.
The October webinar presented Biomedical Accelerator Mass Spectrometry: Measurement at incredibly small concentrations by Ted Ognibene, LLNL, Center for Accelerator Mass Spectrometry (CAMS). Biological AMS is a technique in which carbon-14 is used as a tag to study with extreme precision and sensitivity complex biological processes, such as cancer, molecular damage, drug and toxin behavior, nutrition and other areas. Recent advances have improved analysis times from days to minutes and moved a complex scientific process into routine laboratory usage.
The webinars are a great opportunity to learn about technologies that are available for licensing from LLNL. More information is available on the LLNL web site.
