Diagnostic Technology

Complex rotating machinery is an integral part of operations across multiple industries including healthcare, medical device, robotics, and traditional manufacturing. Turbomachinery, generators, engines, pumps, servo actuators, and electrical motors all depend on intricate inner mechanisms. Rotating machinery, such as turbomachinery, generators, motors, centrifuges, aircraft engines, pumps and fans, fail often because of bearing defects.  Engines, […]

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 […]

Assays to measure cell growth and survival assays used in the laboratory have many widely known practical and technical limitations, including non-linearity, high background and cumbersome protocols. In particular, commonly used assays using tetrazolium salts to generate a colored product lack sensitivity and accuracy due to reliance on mitochondrial bioreduction and other factors. The market […]
