Catheter that emits bacteria-killing light wins $75,000 for University of Utah team - Veritas Medical LLC

May 25, 2014View for printing

The latest $75,000 win comes from International Business Model Competition hosted by Brigham Young University, which drew more than 2,500 teams from 200 schools around the world.

A student startup from the University of Utah has racked up another business competition win, netting $75,000 to develop and market a bacteria-killing catheter.

That brings the company's total business competition winnings to nearly $100,000, money the team of students and graduates plans to use to continue to develop the Light Line Catheter, which uses high-intensity narrow spectrum light considered harmless to human cells to kill bacteria and prevent infection.
