Kickstarting a company with a CTI project

Creoptix AG is a young company developing and selling laboratory devices for the pharmaceutical industry and academia. Its products are based on the proprietary grating coupled interferometry technology (GCI) for real time kinetic analysis of molecular interactions. In the early days of the company, a CTI project significantly helped paving the way from prototype to marketable product. Some aspects of that project will be presented here from a small industrial partner’s perspective.
