IDEAS MADE REAL
We give industry collaborators early access to exciting new technologies, making them part of our own development process. The aim is to bring new innovations to market faster — and it’s delivering real results.
GORE INNOVATION LABS Fine Wire
Wires thinner than a human hair enable the creation of miniaturized devices such as bioelectronic sensors and neurostimulators. The properties of conventional fine wire, however, force engineers to make tradeoffs. Gore’s unique PTFE coating process delivers the needed performance and physical and electrical capabilities in a thinner wire.
Efferent Labs CytoComm® Platform
Gore materials are a key component of an advanced biosensor platform that allows researchers to collect real‑time living cell response data in vivo. By improving accuracy and speed, the platform promises to radically speed the development of new pharmaceuticals.
Sea Lice Deterrence
We’re finding novel ways to keep farmed Atlantic salmon healthy by disrupting the feeding cycle of a species-specific parasite that costs the industry millions of dollars each year.
Investigational Glaucoma Drainage Implant
Investigational glaucoma drainage implants are being developed with the intent to treat moderate-to-severe glaucoma and reduce the need for daily medications, providing a possible alternative to incisional procedures.
Investigational Synthetic Cornea Device
An investigational synthetic cornea device is being developed with the intent to provide alternative treatments for corneal opacity — the 4th leading cause of blindness worldwide.
