If your work involves the culture of cells and you need strict, accurate control over O2, CO2, temperature and humidity, visit the Don Whitley Scientific stand. The Hypoxystation range of workstations has been developed specifically for cancer researchers and provides a range of features to help replicate the tumour microenvironment.
Originally developed by Augmenix, SpaceOAR™ Hydrogel is now part of the Boston Scientific portfolio. SpaceOAR® hydrogel, the company’s lead product, is a soft, absorbable gel spacer that pushes the rectum away from the prostate in men undergoing prostate radiotherapy, reducing rectal dose and injury to the rectum and surrounding tissues. To date, over 30,000 patients worldwide have benefitted from the SpaceOAR hydrogel procedure. More information be found at http://www.spaceoar.co.uk

Alpha Tau Medical focuses on R&D and commercialization of the first alpha-radiation-based cancer treatment for solid tumors, the Alpha DaRT (Diffusing Alpha-emitters Radiation Therapy).
Alpha DaRT has several important advantages:
- Highly potent and conformal
- Low local toxicity, no negative systemic effects
- Enhances anti-tumor immune response
- Effective regardless of tumor oxygen level
- Short half-life – quick clinical outcome
- Disposable applicators – does not require capital equipment or special shielding
