Infusense Inc., a new Memphis-based startup company, has recently obtained an exclusive license from the University of Memphis and the University of Tennessee Research Foundation to commercialize a new platform for real-time measurement of blood levels of the surgical anesthesia agent propofol. The technology was invented in a collaborative research project by Dr. Erno Lindner and colleagues at the University of Memphis’ Department of Biomedical Engineering, Dr. Edward Chaum and colleagues in UTHSC’s Department of Ophthalmology, with collaboration and funding from the U.S. Army Telemedicine & Advanced Technology Research Center. With Tennessee’s wealth of R&D assets, one of ECD’s key initiatives is to support innovation-based economic development and help move new products and technologies from the research lab to the marketplace faster.
