Diagnostic, Delivery, and Therapy Platform
Our goal is to develop medical devices to improve care for people with serious diseases.
The current focus provides medical researchers with an effective, flexible means to develop treatments and diagnosis through the use of microbubbles.
Microbubbles are a proven medical product used to enhance ultrasound imaging.
Researchers and physicians are beginning to demonstrate the enormous potential of ultrasound and microbubble enhanced therapies – please see
resources for a list of publications.
Artenga’s medical device is an
on-demand system to generate microbubbles optimized for therapy.
Novel means to combine microbubbles and targeting
biologics developed. Our targeted diagnostic for
different cancer types will permit early detection with
a simple ultrasound scan and replace multiple needle
biopsies. Our targeted therapy will significantly
enhance cancer drugs and reduce dose and side effects.

microbubble payload delivery to tumour
Cell culture experiments have shown Artenga
microbubbles yield a ~10 fold increase in death of
breast cancer cells compared to chemotherapy alone.
