Nano EDL Capacitor Based Biosensors
This technology features the development and application of a nanoscale electrical double layer (EDL) capacitor based biosensor. It takes advantage of the fact that the capacitance of an EDL device varies very sensitively with the charge and dielectric conditions of the nearby space spanning from the electrode surface to a few nanometers out to dev...

Easy Incorporation of PEGylated Lysines and Glutamines in Peptides
With peptide drugs such as Victoza reaching blockbuster status, the rapid proteolysis and clearance of peptides from the body is becoming an increasing concern. The PEGylation strategies used with protein drugs simply don’t work and PEG polymers are too large for peptides. Peptides are easy to synthesize using solid phase peptide synthesis...

Cellular Separation Device for Tissue Engineering and Diagnostic Applications
Cancer is the second leading cause of death in the US and has impacted most Americans in some way. The current diagnostic tests are unreliable and fail to capture the complexity and heterogeneity of a cancer biopsy. In fact, 1 in 4 cancer cases will have delayed diagnosis or misdiagnosis. This alarming statistic supports the need for more reliable...

The Velox - A Mandibulomaxillary Fixation Device
Almost 1 million mandible and/or maxilla fracture repair surgeries are performed in the United States each year. The procedure corrects the alignment of bones that have fractured either after major trauma, tumor removal, or deep facial tissue repair. To stabilize and maintain proper anatomic positioning the patient is most commonly fitted with an E...

Novel Expanding Cannula for Arthroscopic Shoulder Surgery
In recent years, a large emphasis has been placed on the advancement of minimally invasive surgical procedures, especially arthroscopic surgeries. In the US, approximately 60,000 arthroscopic shoulder surgeries are performed annually [1]. Many of these procedures require the use of one or more cannulae: these are tubes that provide a space for s...

Fit Prosthetics: IDEAL Socket
Currently, there are around 1.7 million amputees in the United States of which approximately 900,000 are lower limb amputees [1]. The number of amputees in the US is steadily increasing every year due to peripheral vascular disease and diabetes related amputations, which account for 82% of all amputations [1]. The prosthetics market in the United S...

Novel ECM Stabilization in Soft Connective Tissue
The cardiovascular market is a large and growing market. It is estimated to be worth $10.7 billion in the U.S and growing at ~9% [1]. Within the cardiovascular market, heart valves are medical devices intended to replace calcified or degenerated valves. There are approximately 60,000 heart valve transplants annually in the US. The two options for...

Stong and Flexible Surgical Adhesive Hydrogel
Clinical need for bioadhesives has risen due to the movement of laparoscopic and minimally invasive surgery over the last decade. With limited working space through port holes of laparoscopic or robotic surgeries, the traditional suturing technique becomes very challenging. An appropriate adhesive is needed to mitigate the complications associated ...

Device for Rapid Diagnosis and Monitoring of Rotator Cuff Disease
According to the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, shoulder injuries accounted for almost 9 million physician visits in the United States in 2006[1]. Shoulder injuries, specifically rotator cuff disease, can be difficult to diagnose, expensive and time-consuming. To give an accurate diagnosis, one must know the angular force and positiona...
