Providing guarantees against risk of faults for autonomous systems
A robotic optical-biopsy scanning framework termed EndoDrone is proposed to improve the sensitivity of gastrointestinal (GI) endoscopy by automated scanning and real-time classification of wide tissue areas based on optical data. A “hot-spot” map is generated to highlight dysplastic or cancerous lesions for further scrutiny or concurrent resection. The device works as an add-on accessory to any conventional endoscope and to our knowledge is the first of its kind. The current functional prototype, which uses hyperspectral (HS) optical biopsy, is compatible with the anatomical dimensions of the colon, is envisaged to allow the identification of flat and small precancerous lesions that are currently missed.
Boosting SNR sensitivity and usable range for transducers in sonar, weather radar, geophysical exploration or medical and industrial ultrasound applications.
Electrochemical flow reactor that generates inorganic oxidants at rates controlled by the applied electric current.
Software solution for infinite measurement precision in time-of-flight cameras
Patient Metabolic profiling for personalised medicine.
Gene expression for tuberculosis diagnosis
The cost of LCD and AMOLED displays can be reduced and their transmission efficiency doubled by removing the polarizing layer.
Peptide and rabbit polyclonal antiserum for broad spectrum of intimin subtypes. For use in research on E. coli-derived diarrhoeal disease.
The only known attaching and effacing (A/E) pathogen to naturally infect mice, Citrobacter rodentium can be used as a model organism for the study of certain E. coli-derived diarrhoeal diseases. Expresses the same intimin β protein as several strains of EPEC and EHEC.
