Project: Elastic light scatter based organism identification

Light scatter based fingerprints can identify colonies – we are adding multiple modalities including Raman and SIBS (spark induced breakdown spectroscopy) to use a combinatorial process – requires optical, robotic design & manufacturing as well as advanced analytical tool development http://tinyurl.com/arjl3tw

Project: Advanced light scatter for blood based diseases

Using advanced forms of flow cytometry to collect both multiple light scatter angles as well as hyperspectral signals from single cells provides opportunities to develop new tools for blood/single cell diagnostics http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ez1XbalPbvM

Project: High content and high throughput flow cytometry technology development

We have been developing very advanced software tools for signaling pathway analysis and also for very high throughput drug screening using robotics. Project is linked to pharma screening needs.
