Novel Anti-Bacterial, Anti-Fungal Nanopillared Surface

Medical devices are susceptible to contamination by harmful microbes, such as bacteria and fungi, which form biofilms on device surfaces. These biofilms are often resistant to antibiotics and other current treatments, resulting in over 2 million people per year suffering from diseases related to these contaminating microbes. Death rates for many of these diseases are high, often exceeding 50%. Researchers at UCI have developed a novel anti-bacterial and anti-fungal biocomposite that incorporates a nanopillared surface structure that can be applied as a coating to medical devices.

Researchers at the University of California, Davis have developed a device which utilizes blood pressure waveforms to estimate the real-time rate of aortic flow past an endovascular balloon.

Automated Optical Chest Tube Air Leak Detection System

UCLA researchers in the Department of Surgery have developed an air leak detection system for use in patients requiring chest tube placement.

Fine Needle Device For The Measurement Of Material Properties

UCLA researchers in the Department of Chemistry have developed a device that allows for quantitative and sensitive assessment of tissues (i.e. tumors) and materials based on local variations in elastic, friction, and cutting forces on needle insertion.

Monitor Alarm Fatigue Allevation By SuperAlarms - Predictive Combination Of Alarms

UCLA researchers in the Department of Neurosurgery have developed a method that is capable of mining a collection of monitor alarms to search for specific combinations of encoded monitor alarms to predict certain adverse event, such as in-hospital code blue arrests or other target events.

Simultaneous Corneal Hydration Thickness And Hydration Measurement Through Multi-Spectral Reflectometry

UCLA Researchers in the Department of Bioengineering have developed a novel technology to simultaneously detect changes in thickness and hydration levels of the cornea.

Scanning Method For Uniform, Normal-Incidence Imaging Of Spherical Surface With A Single Beam

UCLA researchers have created a method that achieves uniform normal-incident illumination of a spherical surface by first projecting the sphere onto a Cartesian plane and then raster scanning it using an illuminating beam. This allows the scanned object, the illumination source, and the detector to remain stationary.
