Blue Ray Scanning Microscope

Overview

This Blue Ray Scanning Microscope (BSM) has been developed for cell fluorescence image capturing at high resolutions and low cost. In addition to being compact in size, BSM features a position-addressable function and a specially-designed sample slide with a sampling area and an address-coded area for sample holding and address recognition, respectively. The cell image of each sector of the sampling area has a corresponding address pattern that can be addressed accurately and repeatedly at high speed. Continue reading Blue Ray Scanning Microscope

Computational Light Field Camera Solution

Overview

As a result of the rapidly-improving computational efficiency and capabilities of IC chips and the higher pixel counts in image sensors, light field cameras promise attractive possibilities and user experiences for a wide range of application fields such as mobile and wearable devices and machine and robot vision.Combining an optimized optical design with advanced image processing algorithms, this light field camera solution developed by ITRI (Industrial Technology Research Institute) of Chinese Taipei, delivers higher pixel usage efficiency of up to 80% of the sensor and better image quality. The solution is also suitable for low profile camera modules, opening additional market opportunities. Continue reading Computational Light Field Camera Solution

iSleep Intelligent PC Power Management Platform

Overview

PCs can account for up to 70% of total office electricity consumption, resulting in excessive energy costs and an increased carbon footprint for most companies. By tracking PC usage patterns and identifying the minimum standby time setting acceptable to users, iSleep can help to significantly reduce energy consumption of computers and minimize their impact on the environment. Continue reading iSleep Intelligent PC Power Management Platform

GeoSense Environmental Monitoring Systems for Agriculture

Overview

GeoSense is a vertically integrated provider of environmental monitoring systems and decision support systems for agriculture, with a diverse offering of nodes and sensors, mesh networks, and data aggregation.Having installed real-time monitoring stations for microclimate, water, soil and plant health variables in around 45 locations in over eight continents, Professor Philip Sallis and his team at the AUT Geoinformatics Research Centre have developed and refined this system. The system has been proven to be a reliable source of information for supporting daily decision making in the vineyard and on the orchard. This has involved custom improvements to off-the-shelf sensors and calibration tools to increase sensor robustness, sensitivity and accuracy, as well as improvements to wireless network components and optimisation systems for power management. Continue reading GeoSense Environmental Monitoring Systems for Agriculture

PIRS Animal Vaccination Progressive Dosage Technology

Overview

The technology describes a process for administering progressively-increasing doses of one or more vaccines to an animal over a period of a few days. It has been shown that this method of progressively increasing the amount of vaccine has the effect of negating the need for further booster vaccinations. Continue reading PIRS Animal Vaccination Progressive Dosage Technology

Genesis Algae Breeding and Fermentation System

Overview

The Genesis Breeding System (GBS) and Genesis Fermentation System (GFS) provide a state-of-the-art solution for extracting protein and oil from algae cells for use in the production of high-quality commercial animal feeds.GBS is the most economical and environmentally-friendly algae breeding system on the market. With its unique technology, GBS doesn’t require fresh water, a dedicated CO2 source, cropland, or even high-cost nutrients for algae cultivation. Energy consumption is also extremely low as well because of its wind-powered system. Continue reading Genesis Algae Breeding and Fermentation System

Ganoderma Strains Coculture for Health Foods

Overview

Ganoderma Lucidum is a medicinal mushroom that has been employed in traditional Chinese medicine for thousands of years and provides a natural source of antioxidants and phytonutrients. The patent-pending Ganoderma strains coculture and medium formulations that are produced using this innovative new process not only have a higher concentration of the active Lucidum ingredient than ones using traditional batch fermentation processes that require high-temperature sterilization.The formulations ensure much better taste in beverages and other processed products and open up interesting opportunities for the development of innovative new value-added applications that leverage the nutritional qualities of Ganoderma. Continue reading Ganoderma Strains Coculture for Health Foods

Spray Freeze Dryer

Overview

Currently freeze drying can require a 22-24 hours drying cycle, and must be loaded and unloaded by hand. Both these factors can inhibit large-scale producers looking to push out more product. This technology relates to a dryer and a drying process developed to enhance efficiency in the freeze drying process.In particular, though not solely, this technology relates to a dryer for use in freezing, concentrating or drying a liquid substance which has some solid material in suspension or a substance dissolved in another liquid. This new technique dramatically reduces processing times and can be used as a continuous process, thereby increasing throughput and efficiency. Continue reading Spray Freeze Dryer

Aqual-P Sediment Capping Technology

Overview

Aqual-P is a modified zeolite that has been developed to absorb and retain nutrients such as nitrogen and phosphorus. The Scion technology takes the already highly-absorbent zeolite and modifies it using a benign polymer that markedly enhances its ability to absorb both nitrogen and phosphorus. The product can be applied to the surface of water where it mops up phosphorus as it sinks before settling on the bottom and acting as a sediment cap, locking in nutrients.
