URP Tenant “GoDX” wins AGA Tech Summit’s Shark Tank Contest

BOSTON – At the 2018 AGA Tech Summit, this year’s Shark Tank line up included an automated system for video capture of endoscopy, a feeding tube that prevents aspiration in intubated patients, a tool to accurately measure polyps captured on colonoscopy, a device that targets gastrointestinal cancers with electrical pulses, and a new method for real-time stool testing of infectious pathogens.
