Technologies Ready for Industry
UAF has received over 200 invention disclosures since 2011. A number of these technologies are available for existing businesses or could provide the basis for new startup companies. Click below to read more about our featured technologies.
Next generation sequencing (NGS) technology is the future of clinical molecular diagnostics. However, looking for a pathogen in a clinical specimen is like searching for a needle in a haystack.Dr. Jack Chen at UAF has developed a new method, named “Preferential Amplification of Pathogenic Sequences” that can be used to greatly enrich pathogenic sequences in clinical samples.The technology significantly reduces the cost per clinical sample to less than 10% of current commercial kits, while providing detection and identification of multiple viral genotyping and viral loads. The technology is covered by pending US patent (Application No. PCT/US14/68644).
Gary Toth has invented a new piano light. The light assembly enables a pianist to easily see the keys in any lighting situation without interfering with their ability to play the piano or keyboard.
The assembly contains an LED light strip that is suspended above and spans the entire keyboard. The light is user-controlled by a dimmer mounted at either side of the piano powered directly from an AC outlet or a rechargeable battery.
The piano light has been used for live concerts at the University of Alaska Fairbanks with very enthusiastic performance reports.
COUPi is is Software that can simulate systems with a large number of complex particles without making large sacrifices to computational efficiency. Our software also allows spheres, capsules, and dilated triangles to be combined with polyhedra making a variety of particles available for simulation.
