Spinoffs are technology-based companies formed to commercialize inventions made at the University and protected by intellectual property rights that are owned by The American University in Cairo (AUC). The creation of a spinoff is an effective tool to commercialize an invention. Inventors may participate in these spinoffs or start-up companies in a variety of ways.
AUC’s Spun-out Technologies
D-Kimia develops novel diagnostic solutions to detect a broad range of diseases by targeting the nucleic acid signature of the disease. D-Kimia’s diagnostic solutions are rapid, affordable, simple to use, and provide the same level of specificity as the most advanced Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR), and other amplification-based diagnostic techniques.
Suitera provides state-of-the-art analysis and optimization tools based on innovative proprietary in-house developed mathematical concepts. These tools significantly reduce the computational time and resources required to perform complex modeling, analysis, and simulation tasks associated with the design of complex systems in a variety of domains.
