We aim to have near-term impact in the world by developing groundbreaking bioinspired technologies, ranging from novel devices and materials to high-value therapeutics and diagnostics, that are translated into commercial products and solutions. If you are interested in any of these technologies, please contact us.
This technology provides an innovative molecular diagnostic assay for high-speed, sensitive, and specific detection of nucleic acids from SARS-CoV-2 or other pathogens, performed in a newly devised reusable base unit with pathogen-specific, one-time-use consumables – first prototyped at the Wyss Institute.
Nearly 60% of greenhouse gas emissions are linked to the production and processing of meat. Using Wyss-developed technology, an alternative meat can be made from vegetable protein that has the same taste and texture as animal products.
PhonoGraft is an easy-to-use, biomimetic device that stimulates a patient's eardrum to heal itself after perforation. This regenerative medicine approach can enable better and longer-lasting eardrum reconstruction, reducing the need for invasive surgeries and minimizing the risk of long-term hearing loss.
OrbitSeq is a digital platform that empowers life sciences researchers to browse, upload, and analyze datasets, and easily collaborate with each other to bring science closer together and speed up the pace of discovery.
The Wyss Institute’s soft robotic glove helps restore lost hand function in patients with neurological conditions from the comfort of their own home, using inflatable chambers that gently bend and straighten the fingers repeatedly. The glove also provides grasping assistance until patients regain full hand functionality.
Metalmark is using the Wyss Institute's butterfly-inspired nanoarchitecture coating to create air purification technology that can destroy airborne pollutants including chemicals, viruses, and smog in indoor and outdoor air at a fraction of the cost of current catalytic converter systems.
