Terabit analyses integrates several functionalities onto a single platform: sample preparation, nucleic acid amplification and pathogen detection. It incorporates many of the required components of a typical room-sized laboratory in a small, portable device that empowers producers to perform food safety testing in the field. There is no longer need for well-equipped lab and experienced laboratory staff to precisely detect and recognize the biological threat.

Terrabio’s portable detection system will significantly reduce the time of the diagnostic procedure. It takes less than 40 minutes from sample collection to the result. Thanks to our patent pending heating technology we ware able to achieve unbeatable temperature ramping of over 20 oC/sec on heating and 15 oC/sec on cooling, while still maintaining ...

Early detection of incipient failure and excessive wear in knee implants is essential to avoid revision surgery and hence lower medical costs. Self-powered embedded implants sensors could provide a new in vivo capability to reduce these clinical complications. A feasibility study is conducted on a self-powered embedded sensor. Passive body motions are converted to electricity through triboelectric transducers to operate low power load sensors.

The self-powered embedded sensor will be instrumented in TKR between the UHMWPE bearing and the Tibial tray, Figure1. It consists of a package designed with mechanical springs. Two identical triboelectric generators and power digitizing circuit embedded in knee implants inside the package. The generator consists of an upper electrode with micropatterns and the lower electrode ...

The basic objective is to increase profitability of crop production, improve product quality, and protect the environment. The inability to obtain soil characteristics rapidly and inexpensively remains one of the biggest limitations of precision agriculture. This sensor is based on electrical conductivity and electrochemical measurement concepts.

The developed on-the-go system has estimated total low cost less than $300 compared to similar kinds of systems. In addition the system can use any individual pH unit, just by connecting the electrode into the holder and the rest of unit into the black box. With an external GPS unit, the system can be used for mapping pH values within one field using any sampling standard ...

This is an idea that has been in the back of my mind for some time now, and this seems like the perfect opportunity to bring it to life. This is a device that will darken a small portion of a vehicle windscreen in order to block the sun from the drivers eyes. This works by installing a thin film of photochromic material on the inside of the windscreen, and an emitter in (or on) the dash of the vehicle. The emitter works by shining a low power ultra violet light onto two, independent axis controlled mirrors that redirect the UV light onto a specific position on the windshield. The photocromic material darkens with the presence of UV light, ...

Our solution is a portable genetic lab that fits in the pocket. Combines mobility, ease of use and speed of analysis with professional amplification and detection of specific DNA and RNA fragments, useful for pathogen or mutation detection. The lab-on-chip analyser in just 15 minutes is capable of 100% detecting the presence of DNA or RNA in almost any biological sample with the lowest currently possible limit - 5 copies of genetic material.

The test material can be, e.g., whole blood, swab, cerebrospinal fluid. Our solutions operate based on the innovative INNAT nucleic acid amplification technology (Isothermal Nucleic Acid Amplification Technology), which is based on the amplification and detection of specific DNA and RNA fragments - the "gold standard" ...

Blackspot technology

According to the U.S. Department of Transportation 17% of all motor vehicle environmentally related crashes was caused by Glare or blindness from sunlight. Between 2005 and 2007 this accounted for more than 9000 crash accidents in US.

This invention seeks to reduce the risk of sun blindness in five steps.
1. Identify the angle of the sun relative to the vehicle
2. Identify the position of the drivers eyes relative to the Vehicle.
3. Using trigonometry to calculate the position of the sun on the windscreen, as viewed by the driver
4. Position a shading object in the line of sight to the sun, preventing the sun to enter the eyes of the driver
5. Continuously relocated ...

Plastics are a real time problem in each and every country but if we look deep into it we can find that maximum plastics are recyclable. The problem lies in the logistics part where maximum plastics are unable to reach the recycling industries. R-cube is a idea where a virtual force will help in keeping the environment clean. The manufacturing companies will print a bar code just below the neck of the bottle which will be sent to the distributors who will scan that code in the ID of the retailers and send it to them. There will be a recycling tax which will be added to the Marked price which is 7% of the price of the bottle. ...

Sexual assault and violence is notoriously hard to quantify but it happens everywhere – in farm fields, on the night shift and in the military. And it happens more often than we might think. According to a new data analysis from researchers at the University of Michigan, by the time women are in their mid-40s, a quarter of them will have been raped at some point in their lives. Not only women are subject to violence and rape, but also men. Nearly 8 percent say they have been raped by the time they turn 44.
This is a very depressing statistic. Many of these attacks by strangers occur in the evening or at night, when there is no one ...

Typical AR style rifles have a round or hexagon shaped tube that wraps around the barrel to protect the operator from the heat of the barrel during firing while simultaneously providing a location to mount additional accessories which facilitate the operation of the rifle such as lighting, aiming, etc. On most AR style rifle handguards, accessories are restricted to being mounted in four locations evenly staggered around the circumference of the handguard. An additional problem with the accessory rails that exist on the market is their inability to mount accessories directly beside one another, outside of the cardinal positions of 12 o’clock, 3 o’clock, 6 o’clock and 9 o’clock positions. This cylindrical handguard would enable the operator to mount ...

The scooter is designed to increase the comfort of movement without harming the environment and nature.

Its quiet and smooth ride will help you enjoy the ride.

Two front wheels increase driving stability. While cornering, he can lean a little to the side for safe maneuvering.

This scooter can be used to get around the city. Also, he will feel confident on a country road, on park paths and easy ...
