4Women is creating a self-administered HPV test that could replace pap smears for most women. They printed 3D prototypes of their devices on the Objet500 Connex3 3D printer, using clear and flexible materials — all at the Polsky Center’s Fab Lab. Additionally, they created a realistic and approachable kit using the laser cutter.
The company was a finalists at the 2017 Edward L. Kaplan, ’71, New Venture Challenge, and won $20,000.
