14047 – NCSU is seeking an industry partner to commercialize a novel genome editing tool. NCSU has filed two provisional patent applications relating to this invention. Abstract The ag-biotech industry, research and development, and translational therapeutics industry all rely heavily on genome editing tools to develop novel and commercially successful products. Widespread application of... Read More
14157 – NCSU is seeking an industry partner to commercialize a novel microemulsion system for enhanced cellulose production Abstract: Over the recent years, interest in cellulose nanofibrils (CNF or NFC) has increased remarkably because of their high strength, biodegradability, surface area and functional value. These properties of NFC makes it an interesting material for applications in a... Read More
12146 – Abstract: In the biomass-to-ethanol conversion process, cellulose needs to be liberated from the rigid lignin that seals it in, in order for the material to be processable. One of the conventional methods for this pretreatment is acid hydrolysis. Traditionally, liquid acid precursors are employed that create toxic waste, requiring downstream treatment, and are not easily recyclable. Waste... Read More
14258 – NCSU is seeking an industry partner to commercialize a novel biosensor based on hybrid nanostructures. The underlying technology is protected under US Patent Pub. No: US 7879560B2. Abstract Biosensors are self-contained devices which are capable of providing specific quantitative or semi-quantitative analytical information using biomimetic strategies. They are recognized as highly... Read More
14064 – NCSU is seeking an industry partner to commercialize a novel, wearable dry bioelectrode applicable to strain, pressure and touch sensing as well as stretchable antenna applications. Abstract: The most common electrode used in clinical applications is the silver/silver chloride (Ag/AgCl) pre-gelled electrode. While these electrodes are reliable and cost effective, the required use of an... Read More
11140 – North Carolina State University is developing a new method for the synthesis of solid-phase combinatorial library of reversible cyclic peptides specifically designed for sequence determination of selected leads via mass spectrometry. This technology is protected under US Patent Pub. No: US2013/0310265A1. Abstract Cyclic peptides are a very promising class of compounds that enjoy... Read More
07053 – NCSU is seeking an industry partner to commercialize a novel medical device for the support of excess pannus tissue during patient examinations and procedures. This device technology is currently patent pending. Abstract This invention is a pannus support device that retains excess abdominal (pannus) tissue for patients lying on their backs or sides during exams and medical procedures. ... Read More
13162 – NCSU is currently seeking an industry partner to commercialize VitalFlo, a novel breathing monitoring device. Millions of people worldwide suffer from severe lung conditions requiring active monitoring and management. Approximately 12 million adults in the U.S. have COPD and 120,000 die from it each year. Over 25 million Americans have been diagnosed with asthma, and of those, 16 million... Read More
13020 – North Carolina State University is developing methods for controlling the reconfiguration of liquid metal structures. Abstract: Researchers at NC State University recently discovered a new phenomenon that allows for the reconfigurable orientation of room-temperature liquid metal structures. The ability to flow, stabilize, and withdraw the liquid metal on demand for shaping into useful... Read More
07055 – NCSU is seeking an industry partner to commercialize a novel process to convert organic facts to fuel. Summary Researchers at NC State University have developed an inventive process to directly convert organic fats to fuel. Currently, biomass is converted to fuel through a series of transesterification reactions creating a biodiesel intermediary product. However, transesterification does... Read More
