Nano Biosensing System

Metabolites can provide real-time information about the state of a person’s health. Devices that can detect metabolites are commercially available, but are unable to detect very low concentrations of metabolites. Researchers at UCI have developed surfaces that use nanosensors to detect much lower concentrations of such metabolites.

Pain Assessment Method And Apparatus For Patients Unable To Self Report Pain

Though pain assessment is a crucial part of many medical treatment plans, most physicians rely on patients self-reporting their own pain levels. This self-reporting strategy may be convenient to some patients trying to determine whether the patient should get to a doctor, but in some situations, especially where a patient is non-communicative or incapacitated, these patients may be unable to clearly express themselves to a medical professional. As such, researchers at UCI have developed a novel device that automatically and objectively monitors a patient’s pain levels by tracking/monitoring subconscious facial movements in real-time.

Boroxine Based Dynamic Polymers

Thermosets are a class of material that have high mechanical and physical strength. While traditional thermoset materials have favorable material properties, reprocessing and recycling them remains a challenge. Researchers at UCI have created dynamic boroxine polymers that crosslink to construct novel thermoset materials that are strong, highly malleable and recyclable.

Modular Wireless Large Bore Vacuum Universal Endoscope A.K.A. Vacuumscope

Though kidney stones are a prevalent problem that affect more than 10% of the population and cost the US economy upwards of $10 billion annually, the complete removal of stone fragments is difficult to achieve without surgical interventions. Researchers at UCI have developed a novel vacuum endoscope which, when combined with standard kidney stone ablation procedures, is capable of completely removing the resulting fragments.

Quality interference from living digital twins in IoT-enabled manufacturing systems

Researchers at UCI have developed a non-intrusive method for building a virtual replica of manufacturing machine, which allows for accurate diagnostics of the state of the system. This provides manufacturers with real-time information on quality control and immediately identifies any malfunctions in the system.

A Simple Integrated Device For Assessing Lung Health

Chronic lung diseases, like asthma, impose critical challenges on both the patients and the physicians due to the complexity of the diseases. Not only are these diseases tough to accurately assess, many of the diseases can be impacted by other physical and sociological factors. Perhaps a greater difficulty lies in measuring the effectiveness and compliance of the medications including inhaled medications. The invention discovered at the University of California, Irvine, is an “all-in-one,” portable device that offers complete assessment of lung health. It also incorporates a novel technology for monitoring the effectiveness and compliance of a medication, thereby, providing a personalized treatment and care plan for adults and children with asthma.

Chemical reagents for natural and modified nucleoside triphosphates synthesis

Traditional synthesis of nucleoside triphosphates (NTPs), the building blocks of our genetic material, requires expensive purification yet produces small scale quantities. UCI researchers have developed novel reagents as well as a synthetic route that enables cost-effective and larger scale production of NTPs critical for biomedical research, as well as in certain diagnostic and therapeutic modalities.

Polarization mode dispersion-based physical layer key generation for optical fiber link security

Researchers at UCI have developed a novel method for encrypting optical communications, which is simpler, less expensive, and less computationally-demanding than standard solutions.
