High Frequency Digital Frequency Domain Fluorescence Lifetime Imaging System For Applications On Tissues

The technology is a software/hardware combination designed to enhance sampling rate for frequency domain fluorescence lifetime imaging. Fluorescence lifetime imaging microscopy (FLIM) is a technique that uses signals emitted from fluorescent samples to construct images of those samples in near real time. An advantage to FLIM is its ability to image large fields of view, which makes it an attractive option for dynamical measurements of live biological tissues. The higher sampling rate available using this technology will allow for more information to be gleaned from biological samples, which may have a fluorescence band up to 1 GHz, advancing tissue imaging.

3D Printer with Improved Selective Laser Sintering (SLS)

Three dimensional (3D) printer and rapid prototyping (RP) systems are currently used to quickly produce objects and to prototype parts using CAD tools. Most RP systems use an additive, layer-by-layer approach to building parts by joining liquid, powder, or sheet materials to form physical objects. Some of these RP systems through selective laser sintering amalgamate materials by heating them with lasers to generate 3D printed objects. Researchers at the University of California, Irvine have created a new 3D printer with improved selective laser sintering. The new 3D printer and process varies the composition of the materials in a 3D printed object thus creating an object with enhanced strength, conductivity, heat resistance and other enhancing properties.
