  3. A NANOeSPRi-based IVD Assay for Multiple Organ Injury

    SBC: LUNA INNOVATIONS INCORPORATED            Topic: DHP14005

    Major organ injuries such as liver, kidney, heart and lung injuries can lead to high morbidity and mortality in critically ill patients. Advanced noninvasive testing with high sensitivity and specificity is needed to detect specific organ injury particularly at early stages. Current techniques such as PCR, MS, absorption-based assays, ELISA and microfluidic-Luminex, cannot meet such requirements. ...

  6. Development of the JoRT Platform for Realistic Joint Reduction Training

    SBC: LUNA INNOVATIONS INCORPORATED            Topic: DHA173002

    Joint reduction is a key skill and is a core competency for orthopedic surgeons deploying as part of a trauma team.Current training options are limited to classroom instruction on uninjured persons due to lack of a suitable training simulator. The first true reduction performed by medical providers is on actual patients. This method of instruction prevents the trainee from developing the comfort a ...
