Closed-Loop Axisymmetric Drop Shape Analysis for Droplet Manipulation
Inventors at the University of Hawaii have developed a novel method for closed-loop axisymmetric drop shape analysis (CL-ADSA), taking it beyond traditional surface tension measurement to a sophisticated tool for manipulating millimeter-sized droplets. This closed-loop system enables real-time measurement AND precise control of droplet properties s...

Mesothelioma Biomarker
Malignant mesothelioma, which is associated with asbestos or erionite exposure, is an aggressive and lethal cancer of the mesothelium, the protective lining that covers many internal organs and is most commonly found in the lungs. The inventors have discovered that misregulation of a protein called High Mobility Group Box 1 (HMGB1) is linked to mes...
