Table of Contents


•Cost effective, non-invasive point of care diagnostics that use bio-sensor chips to provide direct, digital, state of the art sensitivity (fM - pM) and selectivity through proprietary semiconductor processing of CNT FETs and may be used to diagnose a variety of diseases and related health risks
•A second-generation biomimetic coating comprised of 2 protein components (FN and SDF-1α) which may be applied to cardiovascular prostheses in order to help avoid tissue rejection and subsequent device failure
•Molecular diagnostics technologies that perform directed analyses of cell-free DNA in blood and are used to provide safe, highly accurate, and affordable prenatal tests for maternal and fetal health
•A tubular valve implanted through the mouth during an ambulatory procedure for the treatment of gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), although future applications for the technology include obesity and irritable bowel syndrome
•Highly compact intensity-modulated proton therapy medical system powered by a dielectric-wall accelerator and intended for use in oncology patients; features a revolutionary design with a substantially smaller structure and greater flexibility than other accelerators
•A patented electro-chemical technology for coating teeth with a high concentration of target materials that last for long periods of time, and include the following applications: (1) Fluoritray, a non-invasive, painless tooth fluoridation, producing a thick protective Fluoroapatite layer lasting for more than one year, reducing sensitivity and significantly improving resistance to bacteria and the acidic mouth environment; and (2) UltraWyte, for superior tooth whitening
•A novel, disposable device used for intra-abdominal pressure monitoring in patients that are receiving gastric feeding, require safe monitoring of gastric residual volume, or are being screened for intra-abdominal hypertension
•An FDA-cleared dual-balloon catheter for urinary drainage that is designed to reduce adverse events resulting from Foley urinary catheterization, including the occurrence of Catheter Associated Urinary Tract Infections (CAUTI), sepsis, and bladder cancer in long-term users
•SideView Mono trocar for single access laparoscopic surgery
•Patent-pending T-Loc(TM) Technology, used for the treatment of fractures and injuries to the shoulder joint and allowing precise, reproducible surgeon-controlled tensioning and low-profile, knotless fixation
