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…

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…

MicroRNA Diagnostic Biomarkers and Therapeutic Targets for Pancreatic Cancer
TS-037623 — A novel microRNA expression pattern for the detection and treatment of pancreatic cancer.
Pancreatic cancer is the 3rd leading cause of cancer-related death in the United States, surpassing breast cancer. It is expected to become the 2nd leading cause of cancer-related death in the US by the year 2020, surpassing colorectal cancer (American Cancer Society, 2017). In 2017 an estimated 5…

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…

Multichannel Polymer Chips for Rapid Multiplex Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay
TS-014978 — A more accurate, cost efficient and faster method to one of the most widely used diagnostic tests in the world.
The conventional Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay, or ELISA, is typically carried out in a 96-well or 384-well microliter plate. The method involves a series of mixing and washing steps, which are not only tedious and laborious, but which also often result in large errors and inconsistent outcome…
