Microfluidic Apparatus For Respirometry

Executive Summary Cellular respiration is a set of metabolic processes responsible for the conversion of chemical energy in all aerobic organisms. In animal and plant cells this takes place in the mitochondria where food is broken down to CO2 and strongly reducing compounds. Energy released upon oxidation of the latter by molecular oxygen via a chain...

Method For Removing PFAS in Liquids

VALUE PROPOSITION Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) are a widely used but toxic and carcinogenic group of man-made chemicals. They are extremely resistant to degradation and will persist in the environment and in the human body. PFAS are highly water soluble, thus contaminated drinking water is the primary source of exposure. The most common...

High Frequency Interconnect to Semiconductor Device

VALUE PROPOSITION High frequency electronic devices are an important technology for a variety of applications ranging from biomedical imaging, photon lasers, and high-volume data transmission. As these devices become more complex, multiple integrated circuits (ICs) need to be connected. Interconnect systems have been developed to allow for interaction...

Falling Bed Plasma Reactors

VALUE PROPOSITION A large variety of applications require powdered materials to be treated by plasmas. Most applications used in the industry and research labs have a static configuration, where the powder samples are placed in a tray and stay still during the process. This is ineffective if the powders pile up in multiple layers since the plasma...
