Young business award

At the annual MESA+ meeting, the Young Business Award 2012 was awarded to David Fernandez Rivas and Bram Verhaagen, respectively PhD-students at the Mesoscale Chemical Systems and the Physics of Fluids group. During a 3 minute pitch, they presented their business idea 'BµBCLEAN' for cleaning root canals and other spaces around teeth that are difficult to clean, using a novel technique that can generate microbubbles in a controlled way. A three-experts jury considered this idea the most promising one in terms of applicability, scalability and ease of entering the market.
