CTC Becomes Qualcomm Ventures' QPrize Competition Finalist

Cambridge Temperature Concepts (CTC), one of the winners in the Cambridge Wireless Discovering Start-Ups competition at the end of last year, is one of six global finalists in the Qualcomm Ventures' QPrize competition to represent Europe; and has already picked up a prize of 100,000 euros in venture financing.

CTC, founded by a group of scientists from the University of Cambridge, has developed a non-invasive DuoFertility fertility monitor to help couples start their families. It uses a wireless patch that measures physiology 20,000 times a day and transmits the results for expert analysis and advice. In a study of 99 patients who qualified for IVF treatment for unexplained infertility, DuoFertility has already shown to be equally effective as IVF in achieving pregnancy.

The six Qprize finalists representing China, Europe, India, Israel, Korea and North America now proceed to the final round of competition at the prestigious DEMO Spring 2011 event in California, to compete for the Grand Prize of an additional US $150,000 in venture financing.

CTC along with the other winners of Discovering Start-Ups 2010 - Augmentra, MagicSolver, OXEMS (Oxford Electromagnetic Solutions) and PneumaCare - will also be presenting at the Innovation Hothouse during the Cambridge Wireless, Future of Wireless International Conference in June.
