Improved system for modifying microbial cell characteristics and production of said cells

Laval University

Description A stirred-fermentor containing immobilized cells is continuously fed with culture medium and maintained in favourable conditions for cell growth. Released cells from immobilization matrix that exhibit the same characteristics as immobilized cells are continuously produced in the effluent of the reactor. Microbial living cells are immobilized by surface binding or entrapment techniques. Binding involves cell attachment to the surface of a carrier and self-aggregation of cells...

Software System for Automated Segmentation of Digitized Histological Sections for Vasculature Quantification

Western University

Short Description    Immunohistochemistry is a routine method for evaluating the distribution of antigens in microscopic tissue samples. For example, visualization of smooth muscle actin in histology is commonly used to study vascular physiology, understand disease progression and/or visualize organ development. To achieve this, the distribution of smooth muscle actin in the tissue of interest is quantified to reveal the overall number of vessels present, and/or determine...

Cysteine rich protein (CRISP1), a reliable marker for replacing and/or complementing various male infertility assessment procedures

Laval University

DescriptionA cysteine-rich secretory protein (CRISP1), both associated to sperm and in its soluble fraction, was found to be highly specific to the epididymis. The absence of this CRISP1 in human semen correlates with a complete absence of any epididymal secretions in an ejaculate.Different methods and tools can be used for designing a testing kit for male infertility based on CRISP1 : it may be configured such as to use monoclonal antibodies that bind specifically to CRISP1 and to permit a...

CALCIUM BINDING PROTEIN, SPERMATID SPECIFIC 1, AS A BIOMARKER FOR DIAGNOSIS OR TREATMENT OF STRESS

University of Alberta

A method of determining risk of stress in a subject involves determining in a biological sample, the level of one or more forms of calcium binding protein spermatid specific 1 protein, wherein the one or more forms comprise one or more of 12 kDa, 15 kDa, 18 kDa, 20 kDa, 27 kDa, 33 kDa, 55 kDa, or 90 kDa forms; comparing the level of the one or more forms in the sample with the level of the one or more forms in a normal control; determining whether the subject has risk of stress in accordance...

SYSTEMS AND METHODS FOR CONTROLLING USER INTERACTION WITH BIOFEEDBACK GAMING APPLICATIONS

University of Saskatchewan

Systems and methods of controlling user interaction with an application. The systems and methods include executing an application, providing a graphical overlay coupled to the application where the graphical overlay is configured to display a visualization or a visual effect, measuring at least one engagement characteristic to provide a measured condition and providing the visualization based on the measured condition. Examples of engagement characteristic include user physiological...

METHOD OF GROWING A PLANT HAVING AT LEAST ONE LIGHT ABSORBING PIGMENT

McGill University

There is described a method of growing a plant having at least one light absorbing pigment where the at least one light absorbing pigment absorbing optical energy at absorbing wavelengths. The method generally includes a step of illuminating the plant with at least one light beam. The at least one light beam having optical energy within at least two spectral regions each encompassing a given wavelength, the given wavelengths being away from the absorbing wavelengths of the at least one light...

SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR QUANTIFYING MID-AIR INTERACTIONS AND GESTURE BASED TEXT ENTRY MAP DESIGNED TO OPTIMIZE MID-AIR INTERACTIONS

University of Manitoba

Mid-air interactions are prone to fatigue and lead to feelings of heaviness in the upper limbs, a condition casually termed as the gorilla-arm effect. Designers have often associated limitations of their mid-air interactions with arm fatigue, but do not possess a quantitative method to assess and therefore mitigate it. A novel metric is introduced as, Consumed Endurance (CE), derived from the biomechanical structure of the upper arm and aimed at characterizing the gorilla-arm effect. A...
