Youngstown-based Syncro is changing the way critically ill patients are cared for � and tossing out the notion of a painfully difficult startup process. The startup medical device company's flagship product is the BlueTube. Instead of relying solely on numerous X-rays to guide a feeding tube into the stomach, two powerful magnets do the job. And they do it a lot faster -- turning a difficult product into an easier one. People are taking notice. Prestigious customers, including Johns Hopkins Medical Center in Baltimore and the Brooke Army Hospital in San Antonio, have placed orders. In 2010, the Ohio Third Frontier OK'd $490,000 for Syncro through its Innovation Ohio Loan fund. The BlueTube is currently manufactured in Germany, but plans were in the works to manufacture the product in Ohio by the end of 2010 -- with the potential of adding 30 jobs to the company's four-person headcount.
