A Wearable Platform for In-Situ Analysis of Hormones

UCLA researchers in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering have developed a highly sensitive, wearable hormone monitoring platform.

Livestock Triggered Mechanical Valve

Researchers at the University of California, Davis have developed a novel mechanical valve to disperse water for the purposes of cooling livestock. This simple and easy to fabricate valve is actuated by the animal, thus saving water.

Genetic Test for Equine Immune-Mediated Myositis

Researchers at the University of California, Davis and Michigan State University have developed a genetic test to diagnose immune-mediate myositis in American Quarter Horses and related horse breeds.

New Tool and Method for the Minimally Invasive Transection of Horse Annular Ligament

Researchers at the University of California, Davis have developed a new surgical method and tool to facilitate the transection of the annular ligament in horses.

Fractal RF Coils for Use in High Field MRI (>3T) Resulting in High Resolution Images

Researchers at the University of California, Irvine have designed a fractal shaped RF coil for magnetic resonance (MR) image acquisition that effectively reduces interference commonly associated with coil loops (such as the birdcage coil) that are in close proximity. Limiting coil interference enables an increase in the flexibility of phased array design and reduces the need for additional system components to cancel out signal noise.

Rapid Assay Including But Not Limited To Lateral Flow Assay For The Detection Of Specific Hormones In Ill Neonatal Foals And Foals With Maladjustment

The present invention provides impending ‘stall side’ diagnostics and for Neonatal Maladjustment Syndrome (Dummy Foals) and anticipated methods for treatment

Synthetic Platelets (SynPlats) to Treat Internal & External Bleeding

      Biomaterial nano-particles that mimic the key structural and functional attributes of platelets and have been shown to greatly reduce bleeding time both internally and externally.

Novel Imaging Technique Combines Optical and MR Imaging Systems To Obtain High Resolution Optical Images

Researchers at the University of California, Irvine have developed a novel high resolution imaging technique, referred to as Photo-Magnetic Imaging (PMI), that combines the abilities of optical and magnetic resonance (MR) imaging systems. Images are created with PMI by heating tissue with a light (e.g. laser) and measuring the resulting temperature change with MR Thermometry. This change in temperature can then be related to a tissue’s absorption, scattering, and metabolic properties. PMI addresses the limitations of current optical imaging techniques by providing a repeatable, non-contact, high resolution optical image with increased quantitative accuracy. This technique can be used for a wide-range of applications including but not limited to imaging of small animals for research purposes. This technique may also be used in imaging the tissue and organs of a patient.
