EndoInSight wins NSF I-Corps Grant
from Vanderbilt University Center for Technology Transfer and Commercialization
Pietro Valdastri and Byron Smith have worked closely with Vanderbilt gastroenterologist Keith Obstein to design a device that can be attached to a standard endoscope in order to administer CO2 during colonoscopy. According to Smith, the device "uses an acid-based solution to generate an effervescent reaction that produces CO2, essentially the same chemicals found in Alka-Seltzer." To bring this new technology to market, Smith formed a new company, EndoInSight.
