Welcome to the IDEATION LAB

Welcome to the Integrated Devices for Early disease Awareness and Translational applicatIONs Lab (IDEATION LAB) located in heart of Waterloo Region – one of the world's fastest growing tech sectors and the world's second highest start-up density after Silicon Valley.

The IDEATION LAB was established to provide the clinical community in Canada and abroad with tools for early disease detection and monitoring. Early detection is empowering for both clinicians and patients.  Time enables doctors and patients to make the best choices to facilitate the best outcomes.

At the IDEATION LAB we are working to create the next generation of integrated devices with the widest spectrum of possibilities and the shortest path from idea to implementation and test. Our goal is to improve quality of life and long-term survival in patients.
