BioBone - Biodegradable Bone Composite
BioBone—Bio-degradable Bone Composite Summary Fully degradable composite implant materials are highly desirable in the treatment of damaged or defective bone tissue. Existing non-degradable implants experience many limitations with, for example, miss-match of mechanical properties (i.e. stress shielding), wear debris and encapsulation. Often these non-degradable...

Novel polymers which resist bacterial attachment
Antimicrobial Urinary Catheter The Opportunity ·We have developed a novel polymer which prevents bacterial adhesion. ·We are using it to coat urinary catheters to prevent encrustation and catheter associated urinary tract infection (CAUTI). ·We have shown that not only is the coating non-toxic and non-irritant, but that in vivo its use dramatically...

Raman spectral imaging for automated Mohs Micrographic surgery of Basal Cell Carcinoma
Automated Detection and Imaging of Tumours During Surgery Summary Automated imaging and objective diagnosis of excised tissue specimens during cancer surgery would lead to increasing the efficacy of the most advanced surgical procedure. We have developed a model which enables Raman Micro-Spectroscopy (RMS) to be used as an alternative to histopathology...
