4/11/2018 Supported by a DoD grant to Dr. Ye, we have a state-of-the-art photoacoustic tomography system, MSOT inVision 256-TF from iThera Medical, installed in our lab. Looking forward to utilizing this imaging system for a number of cutting-edge research projects.
2/23/2018 Congratulations to Jonathan Scudder for publishing a research paper on “Limulus Amoebocyte Lysate Test of Endotoxin via a Photonic Crystal Biosensor” in the Journal of Biomedical Optics. We have developed an innovative approach for sensitive detection of endotoxin, which has a great potential to be utilized by the pharmaceutical industry for quality control of parenteral pharmaceuticals and implantable medical devices. Based on a unique open-microcavity photonic-crystal biosensor, we have demonstrated that our new approach has improved the assay sensitivity by 200 times compared to the best commercially available systems and reduced the time needed for the assay by more than half. Dr. Ye and Jonathan has patented this technology and is actively working with major biotech companies for potential licensing and commercialization of this new technology for widespread applications.
