Thermal Gradient, a venture-capital-backed developer of a microfluidics-based molecular diagnostic system, has graduated from the Rochester BioVenture Center incubator program, according to a news release from our supporting member High Tech Rochester, which operates the center. The company will retain certain operations at the incubator.
During its five years in the incubator program, Thermal Gradient has signed a collaborative development agreement with Toronto-based biosensor firm Axela and raised multi-year funding from the National Institutes of Health for development of HIV diagnostics.

The Buffalo News has a fascinating story on three regionally focused home-healthcare startups that have banded together at our member the Thomas Beecher Jr. Innovation Center at the Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus. The independent but highly synergistic businesses that now share a suite at the Innovation Center are:
- Mobile Pharmacy Solutions, founded by graduates of UB's School of Pharmacy. The company intends to compete with national pharmacy chains by offering customized home-delivery services. It moved from a suburban location to the downtown Innovation Center last December, opening a retail storefront and a compounding lab, and boosting its weekly prescription count by about 50% since then;
- Advantage Home Telehealth, which remotely monitors patients' vital signs; and
- Mobile Primary Care, a team of traveling nurse practitioners.
The three are jointly marketing as a network called Mobile HealthCare Connections. Their work strikes us as a prime example of how a local entrepreneurial ecosystem can support the testing and tuning of potentially disruptive business models. The News story is here.
