  3. DIGITAL INFRA-RED EYE COMMAND TRANSDUCER

    SBC: Energy Optics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    ALTHOUGH TECHNOLOGY IS ADVANCING AT AN EVER INCREASING PACE,ITS APPLICATION FOR USE BY HANDICAPPED INDIVIDUALS HAS BEEN SLOW. SEVERELY IMPAIRED INDIVIDUALS OFTEN REQUIRE SOME TYPE OF "HIGH TECHNOLOGY" MEANS TO ENABLE THEM TO HAVE A DEGREE OF MOBILITY. THE SPECIFIC AIM OF THIS PROGRAM IS TO INVESTIGATE THE POTENTIAL OF USING ELECTRO-OPTICS AS A MEANS FOR THE HANDICAPPED TO EFFECT CONTROL OF HIS/HER ...

  4. CHRONOLOG AND REMINDER FOR DROPPER-APPLIED MEDICATION

    SBC: Ata Corpon            Topic: N/A

    POOR COMPLIANCE TO MEDICATION REGIMENS AND THE RESULTING INEFFECTIVENESS OF TREATMENT ARE MAJOR CONCERNS IN DRUG STUDIES AND IN SELF-ADMINISTRATION OF PRESCRIBED MEDICATION. ATA CORPORATION DEVELOPS AND MARKETS DEVICES THAT MONITOR COMPLIANCE AND IMPROVE COMPLIANCE THROUGH REMINDING AND GUIDING FUNCTIONS. IMPROVEMENT OF POOR COMPLIANCE IS PARTICULARLY IMPORTANT IN THE TREATMENT OF GLAUCOMA. IT IS ...

  5. NEW INTERFERENCE COLOR SLIDE

    SBC: Biostar Medical Products, Inc            Topic: N/A

    THE NEW INTERFERENCE COLOR SLIDE PROPOSED FOR IMMUNOASSAYS PRODUCES THE DESIRED COLOR CHANGES IN A WET STATE. THIS TECHNIQUE WILL BRING ASSAYS CLOSER TO A ONE-STEP PROCESS THAN EXISTING TECHNOLOGY. WITHOUT THE RINSING AND DRYING STEPS, THE WET TECHNIQUE WILL BE SIMPLER AND FASTER THAN ELISA. THE ENTIRE ASSAY CAN BE CONTAINED INSIDE BE REFLECTED IN THE HANDLING TIME AND END COSTS OF THE TEST. PRELI ...

  6. SIMPLIFIED PHOTOMETRIC ELLIPSOMETER

    SBC: Biostar Medical Products, Inc            Topic: N/A

    A NEW INSTRUMENT IS PROPOSED FOR THE STUDY OF MONOMOLECULAR ORGANIC FILMS. THIS INSTRUMENT CONSISTS OF AN IMAGING ELLIPSOMETER VIEWFINDER AND A ONE-SPOT THICKNESS-MEASURING PHOTOMETER VISIBILE IN THE VIEWFINDER. WITH THE VIEWFINDER,MONOMOLECULAR PROTEIN SPOTS COULD BE SEEN ON THE SURFACE OF A SLIDE, SO THAT SAMPLE HOMOGENEITY AND QUALITY COULD BE ASSESSED BEFORE THE PHOTOMETER IS USED. THE SIZE OF ...

  7. CELL SEPARATION IN ELECTROMAGNETIC FIELDS

    SBC: Biostar Medical Products, Inc            Topic: N/A

    A NOVEL CELL-SEPARATION METHOD UTILIZING OSCILLATING ELECTROMAGNETIC FIELDS WILL BE INVESTIGATED. THE PRINCIPLE OF SEPARATION LIES IN THE POLARIZABLE NATURE OF THE LIVE CELLS IN THE ELECTRIC FIELD. IN THIS METHOD, A SUSPENSION OF HETEROGENEOUS CELL MIXTURE IS SUBJECTED TO ELECTROMAGNETIC FIELDS. THEORETICAL CALCULATION OF A MODEL SYSTEM PREDICTED THAT UNIDIRECTIONAL CELL MIGRATION OCCURS. THE VELO ...
