Dynaxion featured in latest Eindhovens Dagblad article

Dynaxion was in the first cohort of deep-tech ventures in 2018. Their scanner uses a particle accelerator that generates neutrons. Those neutrons are released onto the atoms of materials. Depending on the reaction that occurs, artificial intelligence can be used to analyze which substance is involved. To be specific, Dynaxion’s scanner can tell the difference between milk powder and cocaine present in parcels and suitcases. So, what’s missing? Investors. “It's difficult,” says Joost van de Griendt. “Investors talk more about risks than opportunities.” If Dynaxion secures funding for a prototype and gets to market, their scanner will literally make the world a safer place. Contact Joost if you can help them get there:
