Photothermal disinfection of N95 respirators

— Technology Description

A team of researchers led by Young-Shin Jun have developed a polymer coating for N95 respirators that would permit fast, easy, and cheap N95 disinfection using only direct sunlight. The researchers coated the outermost fabric layer in polydopamine, which converts photon energ…

“Gemini” connector device to prevent peripheral venous catheters from dislodging and leaking

— Technology Description

A team of researchers at Washington University in St. Louis have developed the patented “Gemini” breakaway connector to turn peripheral venous catheter (PVC) fluid flow on and off without leaking. In addition, this easy-to-use device is designed to prevent PVC di…

Encapsulation to protect detection antibodies in implantable and wearable biosensors
