SARS-CoV-2 Diagnostic Assay with Sensors of Immune Activation
TS-050296 — A sequencing-based diagnostic assay for SARS-CoV-2 with sensors of immune activation and the viral microbiota.
Diagnosis of SARS-CoV-2 infection, which is responsible for COVID-19 disease, is typically performed by molecular analysis of upper respiratory sampling (e.g. nasal swab). Transcriptional-mediated amplification (TMA) and quantitative (real-time) polymerase chain reaction (qPCR) using one or more v…

Automated Detection of Tumor Budding in Colorectal Cancer
TS-039267 — A non-invasive and automated tumor budding image analysis system for colorectal cancer. This program can detect tumor buds in traditional H&E stained sections without the need for manual assessment.
Colorectal cancer is the third most commonly diagnosed cancer in the United States. With a survival rate of less than 65%, early detection and treatment are key factors in survival. Tumor budding, associated with higher tumor stage, lymph node metastasis, and decreased disease-free survival, has e…

Cancer Cell Motility Monitoring Device
TS-038384 — A novel device for monitoring cancer cell motility in real time using standard microscopy.
The Need Numerous cancer cells are capable of migration, resulting in metastasis of distinct organs and tissues from where the cancer first arose. Migrating cancer cells are known to directionally respond to applied electric fields, a phenomenon called electrotaxis, as well as topological cues prov…

Functionalization of Polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) Surface by Amination with Polyethyleneimine (PEI) for Applications in Microfluidic Immunoassays, Protein/Enzyme Biochips, and Biocatalysis
TS-037631 — Polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) is a useful material for development of assays, biochips, and other biological materials. However, PMMA makes for a difficult substrate because of complexities with respect to adhesion. This technology presents two new methods for enhanced protein binding onto PMMA.
Polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) is a synthetic resin in the acrylic family, often used as a substitute for glass or as a material for biomedical devices. PMMA-based biosensors have low protein binding efficiency and low sensitivity. PMMA is used in a variety of applications like immunoassays, biosen…

Methylated Peptides Derived from Tau Protein and Their Antibodies as Diagnostic and Therapeutic Reagents for Alzheimer's Disease
TS-037626 — A diagnostic to provide more swift and reliant detection of Alzheimer's disease by monitoring the chemical modification of tau proteins in bodily fluids.
Alzheimer’s disease (AD), a progressive neurodegenerative disorder, is the leading cause of dementia worldwide. While there are some indications of genetic predisposition, the etiology of the disease is primarily unknown, but it does progress with age. Diagnosis of the disease is critical at…

Nanopump Separation Device and Method
TS-037584 — A device for separating macromolecules in a solution of macromolecules having different molecular sizes
Many clinical and research applications involve separation of specific biological molecules, such as nucleic acids and proteins, for further analysis and characterization. A complex biological system can only be understood after each component has been separately analyzed, and proteins must be pur…
