High Throughput Quantitative Assessment of Complex Plant Traits and Physiological Responses
Innovative methods to better predict the field performance of novel plant genetics and/or new agricultural technologies that affect complex plant traits will be developed in a high-throughput greenhouse and field plant phenotyping (HTPPC) center, established to provide services to a broad spectrum of public and private plant research entities.
Miniature Acoustic Cellular Disruption and Biological Detection using Acoustic Wave Biosensor
The miniature acoustic cellular disruption technology releases viable DNA, RNA, and proteins from human or bacterial cells, without chemicals or additional processing, to enable high-speed sample preparation for clinical point-of-care (POC) medical diagnostics and use with nano/microfluidic devices.
BaDx (Bacillus Anthracis Diagnostics)
BaDx is a stand-alone, diagnostics cartridge used in resource-limited and challenging environments to sense real-world concentrations (>100 spores) of virulent B. anthracis, the bacteria that causes anthrax infection.
Point of Care Biosensor for Rapid Differential Diagnosis of Sepsis
We have developed and protected a technology to accurately deliver and control liquids in microchannels using capillary (surface tension) forces only. Our highly flexible liquid handling platform miniaturizes and automates existing laboratory procedures. We implemented the technology for making one-step highly sensitive point of care assays.
A new orally-administered, systemic aminothiol radioprotector, with no nausea/hypotension side effects, with issued and pending patents; itâ€™s administered minutes before a CT scan to prevent the 30,000 CT-associated cancers/year that are estimated by NCI to occur in the U.S. alone. We estimate a $2.9 Billion annual market in the U.S.
