MEMSYS: the future of self-powered devices

Batteries and accumulators are everywhere, from laptops to your electric toothbrush and electric cars to industrial machine sensors. But, over time, all batteries need to be replaced. We expect to need increasingly more batteries, which will impact the environment negatively.

MEMSYS aims to reduce the replacement of batteries. They do so by developing energy harvesting technologies and their application in small devices that can power themselves. Their first product is a self-powered sensor for the railway sector that monitors the wagons.

From lab to the world

Thijs Blad founded MEMSYS as a spin-off of the TU Delft. Thijs Blad studied mechanical engineering and came across energy harvesting during his master’s thesis. He found a technology that harvests energy from vibrations using piezoelectric materials: solid materials that hold electric charge, resulting from pressure and latent heat. Using that energy is possible on a small scale, making generating energy within devices possible.

During his Ph.D., Thijs developed a mechanism and wanted to bring this to application in the world. He noticed many problems with the batteries of industrial sensors. Sometimes within specific industries, thousands of batteries must be replaced. That requires new batteries, which impacts the environment. In addition, the process of replacing many batteries at the same time can be complicated and expensive. All in all, a challenging job.

“At one point during my Ph.D., I was working with 11 students on my energy harvesting project. I love working on an idea with many people and striving for the same goal together. It is one of the reasons I started MEMSYS: to be able to build something from scratch with a team.” Thijs Blad, Founder and CEO of MEMSYS.

Data collection on freight trains

In 2022, Thijs joined the Validation Lab of YES!Delft. Since 2023, MEMSYS has an office at the YES!Delft building. They also participated in the accelerator program. The program helped Thijs to find a product-market fit and to learn about the practicalities of building a business. 

Thijs found a problem with freight trains transporting goods during the Validation Lab. Those wagons have no electric power, so batteries would have to power the sensors. That leads to problems such as scheduling maintenance timely or wagons that are lost. Thijs believes that all these operational problems could be easily prevented if there was a way to collect data on the wagons. So, he asked Gerrit-Jan Mollink to join MEMSYS as COO because of his vast experience within the railway industry, and they embarked on a journey to help solve this problem.

“At first, I only had created a technology. I was searching for ways to apply that technology to solve challenges. So, I conducted market research in several industries and found a problem that MEMSYS can help to fix. Thanks to YES!Delft, this was easier because they helped me during the Validation Lab.” Thijs Blad, Founder of MEMSYS.

Funding and next steps

The first sensors were recently installed on trains in Germany to collect data. Within three weeks, we could help our partner by identifying  weak spots in the track, and our partner could schedule maintenance accordingly . The company was pleased with that; it saved much time and research and prevented bigger problems. Placing the first sensors is made possible by an investment of UNIIQ earlier this year. Additionally, MEMSYS has received a grant from the NWO. 

The data will be used to make the prototype of the self-powered sensors. In the upcoming year, MEMSYS wants to set up a core team with expertise in mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, data analysis, and software development. All in all, MEMSYS is developing the first sensor that will power itself via energy harvesting, aiding the railway freight transport industry to become more efficient. Ultimately, this first project will open up opportunities to diminish battery usage worldwide.

SoundCell: Empowering Rapid Diagnostics

Sometimes, you may experience an infection. Although your immune system will strive to restore your health, antibiotics may be necessary to assist with the healing process. However, finding functioning antibiotics can be challenging as antibiotic resistance is becoming more common. To help the patient recover quicker and fight antibiotic resistance, SoundCell has found a way to diagnose antibiotic resistance within an hour so that doctors can prescribe the correct medicine as soon as possible.

From research to a practical solution

Aleksandre Japaridze, Irek Roslon, Farbod Alijani and Peter Steeneken met at the University of Delft. As a biophysicist, Aleksandre has always been interested in biology. He studies the behavior of single cells at the Department of BioNanoscience at Delft University. Together with Irek, Farbod, and Peter, he tried to find a new way to understand the behavior of single cells as fast and accurately as possible. They developed a hypersensitive diagnostics device, and as they progressed, they realized the potential their machine holds for rapid clinical diagnostics, particularly in determining the effectiveness of antibiotics. 

Usually, investigating bacteria and their antibiograms takes about three days. So, doctors often prescribe antibiotics immediately to prevent the patient from getting sicker. The downside is that in 10 percent of cases, the antibiotics don’t work. As a result, the patient only gets sicker and may even die. Unfortunately, antibiotic resistance is also becoming increasingly common nowadays. The diagnostic device of SoundCell can be used to find out within 1 hour which antibiotic will be effective against the bacteria a patient is infected with. 

Their innovation represents a novel approach. By listening to the sound of cells, the subtle movements and behaviors of the cells are accurately detected. This way, the patient immediately receives proper medication, and misuse of antibiotics is contained, which in turn can prevents antibiotic resistance.

“Initially, we developed an ultrasensitive method for research purposes to determine whether a single cell is alive, dead, growing, or dormant. By talking to clinical experts, we realized that doctors could use our research in a practical way.” – Irek Roslon, CTO and co-founder of SoundCell.

Building the startup

SoundCell operates in biomedical sciences and clinical diagnostics. Their target audience includes technicians and healthcare professionals prescribing antibiotics to combat infectious diseases.

The startup joined the renowned incubator YES!Delft, which has provided valuable support in networking, expertise, and coaching. Being part of the ecosystem has helped the founders mitigate risks, gain experience, and navigate the complex landscape of medical device development. Additionally, the startup has received funding from UNIIQ, Delft Enterprises, Graduate Entrepreneur, and various scientific grants, which have been instrumental in progressing their work.

“One thing I like about YES!Delft is that we gained a wonderful network of expertise with motivated and talented people willing to help you”. Aleksandre Japaridze, CEO and co-founder of SoundCell.

Upcoming 6-12 months

Currently, SoundCell focuses on deploying its machine at hospitals alongside existing diagnostic systems. Also, they aim to expand the team and acquire talent to manage software, connections, and data analysis. In the coming months, they plan to refine their product, seek regulatory certifications, and scale their operations to impact clinical diagnostics significantly.

SoundCell’s innovative technology advances our understanding of single-cell behavior. It provides clinicians with a rapid and accurate diagnostic tool for infectious diseases. By revolutionizing the field of clinical diagnostics, they are battling antibiotic resistance and improving healthcare outcomes.

Nurtio: technology to monitor your office plants on a large scale

Don’t you love it when you walk into your office and are greeted by plants, providing you with a healthy work environment throughout the day? Well, don’t take them for granted. Behind those plants is the interior landscaping industry, which involves designing, installing, and maintaining indoor plants and gardens for commercial and residential settings. Maintaining these environments can be very costly.

Iryna van der Meij and Marco Zijlstra founded Nurtio to help monitor and maintain indoor plants in commercial real estate using advanced technology. It helps avoid long-term problems and is cost-effective because gardeners can work more efficiently.

Building a High-Tech Solution

In 2016, Iryna van der Meij relocated from Kyiv, Ukraine, to the Netherlands to participate in an international MBA program. Nine years before, in 2007, she had started her own company in her home country: a landscaping and gardening service for corporate customers. Now, she remains a non-executive director at that company and is currently focused on building Nurtio Technologies as a co-founder and CEO. This company was born as a solution to the pains she experienced in her first company: mainly the inefficiencies in maintaining interior landscapes, especially for real estate. Therefore, she aimed to create a high-tech solution for the interior landscaping industry and streamline the processes to become a category-defining enterprise in the connected plantscaping industry, including outdoor landscaping, cityscaping, and horticulture.

Nurtio is also the first company to build a centralized data pool to see how plants are maintained indoors on a large scale. As a result, Nurtio already sees dependencies between light, temperature, ambient climate, season, and the plant’s life cycle, which allows the company to build accurate predictive models of plants’ future behavior.

“The idea of this company was born from the pains I experienced in my first business. There are many inefficiencies in processes in the landscaping service industry. For example, plant technicians don’t see plants every day. Sometimes they even have to use their fingers to test the soil’s moisture, and it’s easy to miss long-term problems such as a plant not getting enough sunlight. As a result, maintaining many plants on various sites costs time and money that could be used otherwise. Regardless, it’s the 21st century, so things shouldn’t be so outdated.” – Iryna van der Meij, CEO and co-founder at Nurtio.

Target Audience

Nurtio works mainly in the B2B industry. Their primary target audience is professional plant service companies that maintain plants in the office, hospitality, or real estate environments. They take care of hundreds of thousands of plants daily. Therefore, the scale of operation is very different from the existing consumer solutions. A solid business case exists for those companies: using Nurtio’s technology saves money and enables growth. The primary focus of Nurtio is on the interior landscaping markets in the USA, the United Kingdom, and the Nordics.

“I just came back from a big event in the USA. I see a huge market opportunity worldwide. But first, you need to understand the market, as it has a complex composition and supply chain. But this is where our strength in Nurtio lies: we come from the B2B plantscaping industry. So we can confidently say we know it inside out” – Iryna van der Meij, CEO and co-founder at Nurtio.

Entrepreneurial Journey

Back in 2018, Nurtio joined the validation program of YES!Delft and learned how to do market validation. Afterward, they immediately proceeded to the Accelerate program. Thanks to YES!Delft, Nurtio had a solid base to create a minimal viable product. Currently, four people are working at Nurtio: the co-founders, a senior software engineer, and a project manager for marketing.

So far, Nurtio has been funded mainly through governmental grants. In January 2023, Nurtio closed its first institutional funding from Shamrock Ventures, a Dutch early-stage impact venture capital fund. They primarily fund early-stage companies that positively impact society and the environment. It is an excellent opportunity for Nurtio to test several new product ideas and improve its portfolio.

“We have an experimental mindset at Nurtio. We experiment with the sensors at our homes, too. We do dozens of small daily experiments; if something fails or underperforms, we have the mindset and capability to change direction fast.” – Iryna van der Meij, CEO and co-founder at Nurtio.

Making significant impact

Nurtio is preparing to raise more capital, and the funding round remains open. They are quite meticulous about finding other partners that are an excellent match to accelerate their growth. Nurtio looks to build its presence in the USA for the upcoming year. There are also big plans on the technical side, such as developing new software features and releasing a new version of hardware for the new market segments. They will take every opportunity to make an even more significant impact.
