back to overview

Young startup company Novosanis, a spin-off from the University of Antwerp designs and develops medical devices for various applications. Currently they are working on the VAX-IDTM - an easy to use device for painless intradermal injections. The device, which will reach the market in 2 - 5 years, allows for the minimization of the vaccine’s dose while improving the immune response. VAX-IDTM has recently received the Belgian James Dyson award.

Novosanis is already successful in introducing medical devices to the market. IVD CE-labeled Colli-PeeTM is suited for collection of the first-void urine for diagnosis of sexually transmitted infections and cancer. The device was recently granted an Innovation Award for major social relevance by IWT.
