Alpha Tau Medical LTD
Founded in 2016, MedTech startup Alpha Tau Medical is focusing on R&D and commercialization of its breakthrough cancer treatment, Alpha DaRT, originally invented in 2003 by Prof. Itzhak Kelson and Prof. Yona Keisari at Tel Aviv University. Alpha DaRT (Diffusing Alpha-emitters Radiation Therapy) enables the use of alpha radiation for the treatment of solid tumors by inserting into the tumor Radium-224-impregnated seeds. The company collaborates with key cancer physicians and researchers worldwide to investigate the Alpha DaRT as a treatment for various indications. Clinical trials showed a 100% partial and 70% complete response rate in SCC tumors.

AI4R , French high tech company from Nantes, offers a very high performance system in real time digital autoradiography. Thanks to its instrument with innovative technology, the BeaQuant, all the range of radioisotopes is available to realize a stunning picture of the labelling. The very high spatial resolution of 20µm allows a perfect image reconstruction. Moreover, with the radioactive counting mode, the quantification is directly accessible , transforming the picture in a direct representation of the quantification. The very high sensitivity reduces drastically the exposure time and increases the power of seeing very weak labelling.
