Sterilization of Face Masks and Respirators (UC 2020-248)

Prof. Lorenzo Mangolini and his colleagues from the University of California, Riverside have developed an efficient and low-cost method to sterilize face masks and respirators with ozone. This novel design uses a flow through configuration where the ozone gas is directly flown through the fibers of the FPRs. The parts needed for construction of this […]

Predictive biomarkers for detection of organ damage in autoimmune illnesses – IP 1411

Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) affects approximately onemillion Americans and at least 3.5 million individuals worldwide. Nearly halfof the patients diagnosed with SLE will have involvement of a major organ, suchas the kidneys or lungs. Florida International University (FIU) is pursuingbusiness partners interested in developing and commercializing a new product todetect lung and kidney damage in […]

Hydrophone Calibration System

This technology provides a method for low frequency hydrophone calibration. The ability to monitor underwater acoustics allows for applications such as tracking whale activity, military purposes, and at very low frequencies, the assessment of earthquakes, underwater landslides, and turbidity currents. This technology provides a full end to end digital calibration at acoustic frequencies as low […]

Fast Detection of Pseudomonas Aeruginosa – IP 1402

Pseudomonas Aeruginosa is a common and opportunisticpathogen that produces serious infections to patients with low immune system,pneumonia, cystic fibrosis, blood conditions, and to people after surgery.Furthermore, healthy individuals can also develop mild illnesses from thesepathogenic strains. These bacteria are associated with severe adverse outcomesif treated with inappropriate initial antibiotic therapy, hence the need of anaccelerated […]

Device for Detecting Tremors for Neurological Disorders – IP 1403

Tremors, one of the most common movement disorders, areassociated with several factors such as aging, and certain neurologicaldisorders like Parkinson’s disease (PD). This technology uses an inexpensivehardware-software assimilated design to analyze the effectiveness of repetitiveTranscranial Magnetic Stimulation (rTMS) on patients with PD and other relateddisorders before, during, and after the stimulation-based treatment. The systemconsists of […]
