Inventions:

Title: METHODS AND SYSTEMS FOR ANALYTE MEASUREMENT. UMMS08-50; Patent 9,057,689 

  • This invention builds on the existing non invasive spectroscopic sensor that can detect information from tissues of different thicknesses to aid diagnoses. This invention uses a mathematical approach to calculate capillary SO2, pO2, pH, pCO2, and temperature. The calibration equation for all parameters uses PCA Loading Correction factor to account for subject-to-subject variation that has been used to determine the calibration equation.

Title: SPECTROSCOPIC SENSORS. UMMS08-39; Patent 9,095,291 

  • This technology is a miniature sensor optimized to collect spectra from the tissue of living subjects. The device accommodates tissues of different thicknesses with just a single sensor. The devices are made of solid state materials that are easy and inexpensive to manufacture. The broad spectrum of readings can detect oxygen tension, pH, hematocrit and potentially more parameters.
