PATHOGEN SPECIFIC DIAGNOSTICS

Background Current methods for detecting harmful, and sometimes deadly, bacteria are often time consuming and lack the required specificity to be considered reliable. This is particularly an issue for Salmonella enterica serovar Enteritidis (SE), a pathogenic subspecies of Salmonella enterica. It,...

SPECTRAL BEAM COMBINING GRATING OPTIC

Background The increased demand for high-power laser sources with diffraction-limited beam quality has led to significant scaling in output power of laser systems. Attempts at scaling single-output lasers to the 100’s of kilowatts has revealed issues with removing waste heat, maintaining beam...

HANDHELD PCR INSTRUMENT

Background Polymerase chain reaction (PCR) is a powerful laboratory research and diagnostic technique used to amplify small amount of DNA or RNA in samples by many orders of magnitude. Small quantities of DNA or RNA, such as those found in small shards of shrapnel in a battlefield wound, are often...

METHOD for EARLY DETECTION of CONTAGIOUS DISEASES

Background Contagious diseases, caused by bacteria or viruses, have been known to kill hundreds of thousands of individuals in the United States in past epidemics and currently account for nearly 12,000 deaths per week. While vaccines are a significant preventative method for diseases ranging in...

PATHOGEN SPECIFIC DNA DIAGNOSTIC METHODS

Background The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has developed a list of pathogens. These are classified into three categories: A, B, and C. It is important from a national security perspective to develop a means of identifying these organisms. A key element in developing defenses...

A METHOD TO SYNTHESIZE LONG DNA SEQUENCES

Background The established methods for chemical synthesis of DNA work well for shorter oligonucleotides, but synthesizing DNA strands longer than one kilobase is expensive, low yield, and is prone to error. A hybrid approach using synthetic oligos and conventional PCR can be used for the synthesis...

FLOW-CYTOMETRIC DETECTION FOR DNA SAMPLES

Background Current methods for DNA hybridization and multiplexed detection of PCR amplified products typically require multiple steps for hybridization and can take hours to perform. Additionally, these methods are not easily automated. Quickly and accurately detecting the presence of DNA in a...

AUTOMATED DIAGNOSTIC KIOSK FOR DIAGNOSING DISEASES

Background Often, sick individuals may not know what is afflicting them until they see a health care provider, have diagnostic tests done, and are counseled on the results. Not only does this process involve the time taken to make an appointment and travel to see a doctor, but also the time needed...

PORTABLE MEDICAL DIAGNOSIS INSTRUMENT

Background Proper medical treatment has always been contingent on first accurately determining what is afflicting the patient. Often, if the reason for illness cannot be properly identified, attempted treatment may not benefit the patient, and, sometimes, may even cause the patient’s condition to...

ADAPTIVE OPTICS FOR RETINAL IMAGING

Background Understanding and visualizing the interior landscape of a patient’s eye can be critical in both the diagnosis and treatment of ocular diseases. Visual information on the health of key disease and injury indicators such as the optic nerve, blood vessels, and retina can be derived from...
