Durable Polymeric Antimicrobial Coating for Orthopedics (2017-059)
External fixation is a well-established orthopedic practice in which fractured bones or fusion sites are immobilized for healing by placing wires and/or pins into the bone on either side. Unfortunately, both superficial and deep tissue infections are prevalent with the use of external fixators, particularly Staphylococcal infections. The economic b...

Sustainable, Self-Healing Coatings (2013-065)
This self-healing polymer coating inhibits corrosion of metal iron substrates while extending the life of coated materials. Self-healing materials are an emerging and promising market, expected to reach a market value of $2.7 billion by 2020. The concept of self-healing materials is to enable materials to repair damage with minimum intervention. Cu...

Reduced-Cost, Ambient Desorption Optical Emission Spectroscopy for Performing Elemental Analysis (2016-018)
This analytical instrument uses ambient desorption optical emission spectroscopy (AD-OES) to perform elemental analysis on samples as diverse as metallic thin films, solution residues, powders, and bulk metals – directly from the solid state. Ambient desorption refers to the capability to analyze substances in their native state, and the abil...

Ultrahydrophobic Self-cleaning Materials & Surfaces
Many materials – fibers, metals, synthetics and textiles – can have improved performance with the ability to repel water and contaminants. This technology provides a process for the modification of material exteriors by the addition of nano-sized or micro-sized particles to create the “lotus effect” – a surface that in...

Surface Treatment of Polymeric and Inorganic Surfaces
Current surface modification technologies do not provide a universal technique that works on all surfaces. This patented technology features an efficient method for permanent surface modification of polymeric and inorganic material and devices using the concept of a “loops” and “tails” configuration of the primary reactive p...
