DE.TEC.TOR is a company was founded in 2009, as a Turin University spin-off company, with the aim of industrializing detectors for particle-therapy, an advanced radiation technique for inoperable and radio-resistant tumours. The company specializes in the design and manufacturing of high-performance medical devices, for the monitoring and verification of therapeutic particle beams both during patient treatment and daily quality control of the particle accelerator. The company offers particle physics solutions for different applications and carries out research and development activities to obtain innovative solutions, collaborating with important scientific partners from all around the world.
Key research infrastructure
Examples of ongoing research activities:
- INSPECT: an innovative tool for online and non-destructive analysis along the manufacturing line intended to be installed in production plants performing real-time measurements that are currently carried out only on representative samples in the lab and it identifies chemical compositions of the examined target.
- TERA09: a custom readout chip developed thanks to a technology transfer with the Turin section of the INFN, DE.TEC.TOR.’s partner since its foundation.
