(Update: Sept. 2021 - Cycladex has completed construction of a production facility in the US that will use the company's novel gold recovery technology. The company uses a novel, patented chemical process to recover precious metals by cutting leach time from 30 hours to 6 hours on average. The development of the technology was supported by the National Science Foundation SBIR program and from investors in the UK.) Gold mining has been a historically low innovation industry. The industry standard is to use a cyanide process to isolate gold, which is expensive and potentially dangerous. Cycladex has created a method to isolate gold in an inexpensive, environmentally-friendly way.
The Synaural platform uses engineered acoustic probes to elicit specific neural activity within the brain. A robust, easy to use, non-invasive headset records the neural activity and patented algorithms extract unique metrics that provide objective insight to the subject’s neural health and can be used to guide treatment in a meaningful, measured way. To date, the metrics have demonstrated enough specificity to be correlated with various conditions e.g. concussion, learning disabilities (e.g. Autism, reading, dyslexia), and hearing.
