  3. A new device to improve screening of corneal transplant tissue

    SBC: Sarver & Associates Inc            Topic: NEI

    Marous, James R. An Eye Bank Endothelial Cell Counter Abstract Procurement of donor corneal tissue for transplant use is an important social service undertaken by largely underfunded eye banks. Tissue is not only harvested, but must be screened for a myriad of issues that may make the tissue unsuitable for transplant or pose a health risk to the tissue recipient. Donor tissue may be rejected for ...

  4. Holographic Virtual Anatomy Table

    SBC: THIRD DIMENSION TECHNOLOGIES            Topic: NIGMS

    Project Summary/Abstract Medical students long ago gave up robbing graves for corpses, but students still need access to anatomy resources. While availability of traditional resources (e.g. cadavers, animals, etc.) is dwindling, emerging virtual alternatives are revolutionizing the practice of medicine. Interest in virtual aids derives from decades of success in aviation and the military. These in ...

  8. Automated Identification and Sorting of Rare Earth Elements in an E-waste Recycling Stream

    SBC: National Recovery Technologies LLC            Topic: B

    Electronic waste (e-waste) is one of the most rapidly growing waste problems worldwide. Improper handling of e-waste results in vast amounts of toxic waste being sent to landfill and leaching into the water supply. Due to these concerns, e-waste recycling is a rapidly growing industry. Unfortunately, most current e-waste recycling processes rely on either manual hand sorting or differential densit ...
