Chimeric M. hyorhinis polyprotein for vaccines and diagnostics
Summary: An Enzyme Linked Immuno Assay (ELISA) has been developed to detect Mycoplasma hyorhinis (MHR) a bacteria commonly found in the respiratory tracts on pigs and an occasional cause of polyarthritis and polyserositis in young pigs. The MHR ELISA is able to detect simultaneously, and under the same assay conditions, IgG and IgA antibodies in se...

Magnetic two-way valves for paper based microfluidics: pathway for multi-step assays
Summary: ISU researchers developed a paper-fluidic valve that can reversibly switch fluid delivery into multiple channels with controlled volume and/or frequency. In terms of electric circuit equivalence, this valve is akin to a transistor or an SPDT relay, hence enables programmable fluid delivery. Stage1.png Development Stage: Description: Poin...

Quadruple Butterfly Coil (QBC)
Summary: Iowa State University researchers have developed a novel coil, namely Quadruple Butterfly Coil (QBC). This device has improved significant higher focality over the commercial Figure of Eight (FOE) coils with decreased stimulated area in brain. Model simulation results indicated that QBC stimulates a localized area of the brain, which minim...

Machine for Computing Casual Inference from Time Series Data
Summary: Iowa State University researchers have developed a novel algorithm approach for computing causal interaction from time series data. The proposed approach will help determine which time series data will cause or influence which other time series data, given two or more-time series data. Stage1.png Development Stage: Description: The dete...

Gene controlling spontaneous haploid genome doubling in maize
Summary: A specific mutation in a maize gene is associated with enhanced spontaneous haploid genome doubling. Stage2.png Development Stage: Description: To produce commercial hybrid maize one inbred corn line is crossed with a different inbred line. Using traditional breeding, it takes 5 to 8 generations to develop one inbred line. Doubled haploi...
