System and Method for Sperm Selection
This proprietary technology is a 3D-printed fluidics chip that allows for a flow of buffer fluid across the collected sperm. Sperm are introduced at one end of the chip, then fluid flows into the chip, away from the collection point for the sperm. This causes the sperm to swim away from the starting point towards the collection point. Thus, the spe...

System and Method for Localizing Cardiac Arrhythmia Sources Using Multi-Pole Sensors
Atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most common type of heart arrhythmia, which is when the heart beats too slowly, too fast, or in an irregular way. AF can be treated through a procedure known as ablation, which destroys a small area of heart tissue that is the source of the irregular heartbeats. One of the challenges associated with ablation is that ...
