2019 UT Design Group 772

UT design 3rd place.jpg

Austin Daneman, Vinit Sheth, John Yoo, Marisa Romero, Michelle Chang, Adrienne Phillips

Laser-Based Point of Care for Diagnosing Infectious Diseases

"BIOLASER" is sponsored by UTD NT-BEL under the Department of Mechanical Engineering. The goal is to build a benchtop device that will eventually be used in doctor offices. The device integrates NT-BEL’s technology, which uses nanoparticles and two different types of lasers, probe and pump laser, to detect a relationship between nanoparticles and different viruses in a single step.

2018 UT Design Group 691

Frederick Cossio, Alec Zobal, Craig Hartnell, Sukhmani Sandhu, John Jackson

Rat Labs:
Fully Automated Cranial Windows.

The fully automated drill robots allows users immediate access to handless surgical procedures. The advancement steps (10 µm) eliminating the human-induced errors and deviations. It is rapid, reliable and simple to operate. The conductive feedback ensures animal safety from start to finish in each operation. The automated drill robots could improve the research in imaging of blood-brain barrier activity, volume transmission of neuropeptides and macromolecules in cerebral blood vessels of rodents.
