The investigators have found cost-effective isothermal compression and expansion of gaseous streams is achievable through vasculatures with lung-like gas flow paths embedded in phase change material (PCM) or thermochemical materials. Their design is highly scalable; a patent has been applied for. In previous attempts to obtain isothermal compression / expansion, temperature increase and decrease was […]
Fault detection and diagnosis is essential across diverse industries. They increase safety and reduce costs, replacing current scheduled-based maintenance strategies which cost billions yearly. Dr. Nataraj’s fault detection system invention provides a software-based method for diagnosing the nature and magnitude of faults within dynamic mechanical and electrical systems. The software uses measured data from already […]
Villanova University scientist, Qianhong Wu has developed a novel method to assess the results of a BAFMD test, including a system and device that evaluate the output and results of an FMD process. It produces a diagnostic tool that overcomes the previous issues of interpreting an FMD test. There is significant potential for the tool […]
Taking a radically new approach to eradicate topical infections, LIMR researchers have developed a set of topical over-the-counter (OTC) formulations of safe and effective agents. Their new approach is based on the concept of treating the infection ecology, which includes not only the microbial agent but also (1) the local supportive microbiome for the microbe, […]
HealSuture is conceptualized in two forms for different surgical uses. The first is a dissolvable polylactic acid (PLA)-based suture infused with the active compound. The second is a compound-coated silk suture with similar properties. In essence, these sutures locally re-activate a latent fetal program of stem cell-based regenerative healing that avoids fibrotic deposition (scar tissue).
