Essentially improves upon the traditional surgery outcomes without the risks. Patents filed and currently pending. Class II device which requires 510K approval.
Ophthalmic Formulation of Mitomycin-c, in Sterile, Single Use Kit
This company has introduced the first sterile, single dose ophthalmic formulation of mitomycin-c. Mitosol (mitomycin for solution) 0.2 mg/vial, Kit for Ophthalmic Use, is the only FDA-approved ophthalmic formulation of mitomycin-c. Mitosol permits room temperature storage without extensive light shielding and features a 24 month shelf life. Assured sterility, potency, and dosing along with closed transfer and qualified disposal reinvents mitomycin for ophthalmology.
Advanced Spectroscopic Technologies, LLC
Advanced Spectroscopic Technologies, LLC was formed to provide ultra sensitive detector add-ons for use in spectrometers. The company holds several patents covering techniques that increase instrument sensitivity over 100X. The first market vertical is a retrofit compatible with 100,000 existing benchtop instruments.
Perfect 90, LLC
Recently formed Perfect 90, LLC is the exclusive licensee and commercialization agent to a patented improvement for tape measures used in the construction, trades, and home improvement space. This simple, yet innovative approach to creating right angles embosses the hypotenuse length corresponding to each increment of the adjacent equilateral legs.
Emergence BioScreening, LLC
Recently formed Emergence BioScreening, LLC is the exclusive licensee of a technology from Missouri University of Science & Technology (Rolla) for both a novel instrument and method to detect pteridine biomarkers in urine samples for cancer screening. The technique is non-invasive, sensitive, accurate, fast, simple, cost effective, and adaptable for routine screening at annual physicals, monitoring of cancer progression, evaluation of cancer treatments, and as a translational research tool in pharmaceutical research.
AntiViral Therapeutics leverages a method for synthetically producing antiviral compounds. using a method for synthetically producing melanins for the use of preventing and treating viral diseases. Although the present invention includes prevention and treatment for HIV disease and associated diseases, there are a wide number of market applications outside the pharmaceutical industry. The method includes administering the melanins derived from the present invention, or a combination of the synthetic melanin and one or more other pharmaceutical agents, to the subject in a pharmaceutically compatible carrier and in an amount effective to inhibit the development or progression of HIV disease.
Gards Pill Dispenser
A Guaranteed, Automated & Regulated Drug Dispensing System is the answer to the need to decrease adverse drug events in the Home Health Community, Geriatric Community and Correctional Facilities
The system ensures medication compliance and reduces the incidence of adverse drug events (“med errors”), effecting both patients as well as the associated financial impact on insurance companies federal agencies. Developed by a Industry Centric Entrepreneur and Electrical Engineer with extensive knowledge & experience in the skilled in nursing facilities to address an existing need in the market.
Studies show that 10 million computers worldwide have become what are called botnets (armies of zombie PCs controlled and used by cyber criminals to launch attacks). Existing detection solutions closely follow how botnets behave and thus are reactive. BotNetric Security implements a security technology that aims to detect a compromised personal computer by monitoring and analyzing the characteristic human behavior patterns of the PC owner. The Botnetric Secruity’s invention is directed to such Personalized Bot Detection (PBD) systems and methods that can be installed on and used with one or more computers
Ocular Precision is developing a Patent Pending, non-invasive self-tonometer that measures intraocular pressure (IOP). The design has a custom tip that is applied to a closed eyelid directly over the cornea. The force is increased until the necessary corneal deformation takes place. Synchronized force and distance measurements are used to calculate IOP. This is a lower cost tonometer that can be used by non-physician personnel to measure IOP. It will be suitable for both home and clinic use.
Surgical Magnetics is developing a solution that addresses many of the drawbacks of laparoscopic surgery. Laparoscopic procedures typically utilize a video camera and a number of small instruments inserted into small holes (ports) through the abdominal wall. Due to the limited number of ports only a few instruments can be used at any one time. There is also limited space and the potential for instrument clutter. Surgical Magnetics addresses this problem through a single surgical instrument with multiple detachable heads. The instrument heads can be exchanged within the abdomen and are held in place with external magnets. Additionally, intra-abdominal tissue can be retracted and held in place without the need to introduce additional port-dependent retracting instruments.
CleanDPF Emissions Controls
CleanDPF Emissions Controls is developing am electrostatic diesel particulate filter (DPF). This new style of filter charges diesel-engine generated emissions particles which are then captured on a series of mesh screens. The design prevents clogging, ensuring that there is almost no reduction of backpressure producing a higher level of engine performance. It will also capture a higher percentage of particulate including nanosize particles, making it suitable for both EPA and CARB diesel retrofit programs as well as new engine diesel particulate filters.
Q3D Visual Diagnostics
Q3D Visual Diagnostics is developing a patented, non-invasive ophthalmological device for the digital measurement of amblyopia (lazy eye). The unique design of the device permits healthcare providers the ability to detect a broad range of mild to severe cases of amblyopia and the ability to monitor treatment for effectiveness.
