First, we have a company using AI to determine the likelihood of a female egg to successfully fertilize; then, we have a company providing mental health care for teens and young adults; finally, we feature a company that has developed a salt-based, antimicrobial touch surface to help combat the pandemic.
Based in Toronto, Future Fertility is a Canadian med-tech company currently offering a non-invasive image analysis tool that visually assesses the probability of a female egg (oocyte) to successfully fertilize. Their product helps with clinical decision making, improves live birth outcomes, and provides individualized feedback to patients around the world.

Outbreaker Solutions is researching and developing the fastest-acting antimicrobial touch surface in the world. They take regular salt, transform the properties and then integrate it with commonly touched surfaces such as door handles and touch plates. Antimicrobial CSC eliminates 99.9% of bacteria, fungi and viruses on the surface in under 2 minutes.
