By combining hydrogen peroxide fog (h2O2) and eighteen 95 watt UV-C lamps (1,710 watts total) in a sequence therapy, uv-c shadowing is minimized and sanitizing bacteria and fungus is more thorough on hard to reach surfaces. The robot is pre-rogrammed by room size and maintenance personal enter the room number, their name on the control pad for memory history of sanitized rooms. A standard 20 amp wall socket plug to the robot is used with timing of 20 - 40 minutes cycle depending on room size. The combined use of H2O2 and UV-C also attacks the cell structure of bacteria and fungus in multiple therapies to better reduce the bacteria or fungus ability to resist and survive on its ...

Bioavlee is a biotechnology company with strong competences in R&D. The startup creates solutions that determine the new quality of laboratory equipment. Currently, microbiological industrial laboratories often work on the basis of time-consuming, manual analysis based on classical microbiology. The aim of Bioavlee is to provide products of the highest efficiency which are simultaneously capable of reducing costs and shortening the time needed for testing. Therefore we patented breakthrough technology that enables fast and efficient identification of microorganisms, using their optical and morphological properties.

The Bioavlee identification technology utilizes the fact that microorganism colonies exhibit specific optical (absorption and refraction coefficient) and morphological properties (profile, shape of the edges). The laser diffraction, method patented by Bioavlee allows to obtain ...

Nearly 300,000 Americans have sustained some form of spinal cord injury (SCI), and effective therapies to promote recovery of neural function are lacking. Our vision is to create an off-the-shelf spinal cord implant to replace the injured tissue.

We used the natural spinal cord architecture as a template to design a scaffold that mimics the intact cord. We chose materials with mechanical properties that are similar to the spinal cord properties in order to allow superior integration. We then used rapid 3D printing technology that can fabricate the implant in one continuous print, rather then layers as being done by common inkjet 3D-printers. The interface between each layer is a mechanically weak area; our method produce a more stable ...

A truly futuristic idea that looks like something straight out of Star Trek: Next Generation, Body-on-a-Chip has spring boarded off new tissue engineering technology. In fact, it was the Wake Forest Institute for Regenerative Medicine’s (WFIRM) expertise in generating micro human organs and tissues from the cellular level to functional tissues that led to its selection in 2013 to lead a $20 million, multi-institution “Body-on-a-Chip” program funded by the Defense Threat Reduction Agency. The goal was to build a miniaturized system of multi human organs to model the body’s response to chemical and biological weapons and develop potential therapies and new antidotes. The WFIRM team, which is based on multi-disciplinary collaborative research, was the first to create miniature tissue ...

Bongo Rx is a unique patented, FDA cleared device for the treatment of mild/moderate sleep apnea. The product requires no power supply, tubing or complex system compared to current therapy options. The product was designed to improve compliance, make it easier for the patient to travel, reduce skin breakdown and give patients a viable clinically approved option to treat their obstructive sleep apnea conditions. More information can be found at ...

The present invention relates to design and fabrication of new supports; which are in fact polymer-metal composite supports for finger and foot. They are made of a soft polymer with inserted sheets of aluminum, steel or carbon-fiber. The optimal models are strong, and allow for size and finger position adjustments, and can be used for patients who already have distorted fingers and are working on them to regain some functions. These accommodations have not been addressed by any current finger or foot support and currently, there are no support in the market which can accommodate these advantages. The available supports are made of rough fabrics/Velcro straps, or thermoset plastics without any flexibility. Also, most of them cannot be used ...

Diabetes is a disease that affects 371 million people worldwide, and 187 million of them do not even know they have the disease. In 2010, working-age adults made an average of 3.9 visits to doctors, nurses or other medical providers, down from 4.8 in 2001, according to a report released by the U.S. Census Bureau. Among those with at least one such visit, the average number of visits also declined, from 6.4. to 5.4 over the period.

Diabetes test on the Go is a kiosk which allows anyone to test their blood glucose any time of the day to see if they are in the early stages of diabetes which is prediabetic.

My idea will make people aware of ...

The standards for transformation and transfection for years have been plasmid transfer by conjugate mating, DNA uptake by competent cells, chemical permeation, electroporation, and detergent and liposomal vectors and viral vectors, of bacterial and eukaryotic cells, respectively. The new standards for genetic modification employing such vectors involve CRISPR which causes directed double-strand DNA breaks and homologous recombination/repair (the latter using endogenous cellular processes). Off target changes can occur, although recent efforts have been made by the developers to avoid such untoward effects.

BioSPLICE, BIOSYNTHETIC PLASMID INTEGRATED CAPTURE ELEMENTS, US Patent 8,628,955 B2, Jan. 14, 2014, was designed to provide a new synthetic to biosynthetic vector which avoided these issues and could be used in vivo as well as in ...

A practical offering for a pharmacy which wants to eliminate the need to have staff waste what could be productive time greeting a patient, asking for their name, looking up on the pharmacy system if a prescription(s) is ready for pick up, seeking and removing prescriptions from a tub-file, asking the customers address and, or telephone number, etc. and acting as a cashier if necessary. It would make sense to consider liken to what eAnytime® originated, proposed and had approved by state pharmacy boards for pharmacies, an in-wall or least cost patient self-serve bolted to counter interactive-computer SecurShield™ locked medication PickUp™ kiosk.Today pharmacies usually alert customers when a prescription will be ready for pickup and based on studies patients ...

Clinical Motivation: Heart failure, a clinical syndrome resulting in impairment of ventricular filling or the ejection of blood is the leading cause of morbidity and mortality across the world. Left ventricular remodeling, a mechanistic response to myocardial injury, has been shown to underlie the progression to heart failure. As such, sensitive techniques to track the rate and extent of remodeling are necessary to evaluate risk and treatment options on a patient-specific basis. Echocardiography has become the gold standard for assessing the structure and function of the heart. Moreover, recent advancements in both hardware and software have given rise to a relatively new echocardiographic capability: the assessment of regional myocardial deformation through two-dimensional speckle tracking echocardiography. While this study has ...
