Whole body model of a 10-year-old child for pediatric injury prediction
Technology A computational whole body 10-year-old (YO) FE (Finite Element) model which is anatomically accurate based on the clinical images. The model was composed ofhigh quality elements for accurate stress/strain predictions and possessed high biofidelity to accurately predict body responses under external mechanical loadings. Preliminary verification...

Translation Regulated (TR)-Mediated Gene Expression: Novel Expression and Reporter Vectors
This is a cell based vector system that is able to monitor the transition, in cell lines, from Cap dependent to Cap independent translation. This shift is critical in determining if a cell, that is placed under significant stress (such as treatment with a chemotherapeutic agent), recovers or undergoes programmed cell death (apoptosis). This information...

Loop-Mediated Isothermal Amplification (LAMP) Assay for Meningitis
Summary: A novel LAMP assay has been developed for detection of Neisseria meningitidis (Nm) in patient samples. Six sets of unique primers have been designed which dramatically improve sensitivity of Nm detection and enable discrimination of the six major Nm serogroups (A, B, C, W-135, X, and Y) with limits as low as 1 (one) genomic copy per reaction....

Hyperaccumulation of Arsenic in S. Cerevisiae
Detailed Description WSU faculty developed an innovative biological technology that has promise to cost-effectively remove arsenic from drinking water. The technology employs the use of a genetically engineered strain of yeast with the ability to hyper-accumulate arsenic without releasing the arsenic back into the environment. The yeast is being...

Laser Spray Ionization (LSI) Method for Mass Spectrometry Imaging
Technology Summary: Laser Spray Ionization (LSI) is a novel inlet ionization method for mass spectrometry invented at WSU which can be used to create predominately multiply charged ions from solid samples at atmospheric pressure. Unlike MALDI ionization methods which are typically limited to producing singly charged species for larger molecules, LSI...

Establishment of a Metastatic Prostate Carcinoma Tumor Model in Mice
A Wayne State University researcher has developed new tumorigenic cell lines from the human prostate carcinoma cell line PC-3. These cell lines, known as PC-3/PI, are highly tumorigenic when implanted in the prostate of nude mice, providing a xenograft tumor model of prostate carcinoma. In this model, lymph node metastases form from the primary...

Nano-beaker array formation process and its use for high-throughput loading and crystallization screening and other lab-on-the-chip applications
Wayne State University researchers have invented a novel process to make array patterns and its use for high-throughput screening of crystallization conditions, liquid solution applications, and other lab-on-the-chip applications. The formation process is a variation of “particle lithography” in which microparticles such as polystyrene microparticles...

Establishment of a Prostate Carcinoma Bone Tumor Model in Mice
A Wayne State University researcher has derived new tumorigenic cell lines from the human prostate carcinoma cell line PC-3. These cell lines, known as PC-3/IF, when implanted in the femurs of nude mice, provide a xenograft tumor model of bone metastatic prostate carcinoma. The PC-3/IF cell lines are highly tumorigenic, with tumor cells replacing...

An In Vitro Model System for Studying Development of Human Preneoplastic Breast Disease
Wayne State University researchers have developed a novel model/assay system that recapitulates in vitro the in vivo processes that lead to breast cancer development and progression from preneoplastic tissue. This model is the first that demonstrates in vitro the de novo development and neoplastic conversion of functional alveolar units. Advantages...
