It also encompasses more realistic grain shapes and physical interactions between grains. The program can be run on a range of computer platforms from laptops to supercomputers. It can be applied to a wide range of different physical problems that involve granular material. Commercial application of the software includes physical study of granular materials (soils, regolith, snow, powders etc.)...Tue, 13 Dec 2016 14:31:50 GMTuaf-oipc@alaska.eduhttp://uaf.technologypublisher.com/technology/23694Monolithic Reactorhttp://uaf.technologypublisher.com/technology/22709The monolithic reactor reengineers thermochemical reaction containment. The design represents new flow-through chemistry possibilities that capitalize on nascent, additive manufacturing capabilities for production of a single-piece multifunction, integrated device within an otherwise-impossible-to-produce, ultra-compact footprint. The unique design reengineers tubular reaction containment into a fast, safe, scalable, and highly heat efficient option that can open a whole new approach to many forms of flow-through thermochemical processes. Additive manufacturing is very fast, effectively equati...Tue, 16 Aug 2016 12:39:27 GMTuaf-oipc@alaska.eduhttp://uaf.technologypublisher.com/technology/22709MyoCaninehttp://uaf.technologypublisher.com/technology/22656Aging is generally associated with a progressive gain in fat mass and loss of muscle mass. Although weight loss by caloric restriction might be anticipated to be of benefit, traditional caloric restriction-induced weight loss typically promotes an acceleration of muscle atrophy, and further reductions in physical function despite weight loss. Consequently, geriatricians often do not recommend weight loss. Myo-Canine is a food product that maintains skeletal muscle while reducing fat in obese animals.

The method is unique and is applicable in the production of a wide variety of sphingosine analogues, molecules that have potential in the treatment of cancer. Sphingosines can inhibit the rapid increase of cancer cells and it can further transform to SP1 (sphingosine-1-phosphate), which promotes cancer development. This invention relates to the ability to stereoselectively synthesize sphingosine analogues that can potentially perturb the sphing...Mon, 15 Aug 2016 15:11:27 GMTuaf-oipc@alaska.eduhttp://uaf.technologypublisher.com/technology/22652SHEMhttp://uaf.technologypublisher.com/technology/22227Mon, 13 Jun 2016 10:38:31 GMTuaf-oipc@alaska.eduhttp://uaf.technologypublisher.com/technology/22227Cryotube Vial Designhttp://uaf.technologypublisher.com/technology/21414Thu, 11 Feb 2016 12:14:30 GMTuaf-oipc@alaska.eduhttp://uaf.technologypublisher.com/technology/21414Optical Continuous Sampling Device for Cell Biology and Proteins (Photo Fluorometer)http://uaf.technologypublisher.com/technology/21412Fluorometers are commonly used in field surveys of plant life to measure chlorophyll content in plant leaves. These devices have been reduced in size and can be considered portable enough for field use; however they remain fairly large and cumbersome and require a significant power supply. This photofluorometer is a stand-alone, portable, and inexpensive analysis tool which provides results in less than 30 minutes. It can be used to read the results of a variety of LOC technologies directly, which would eliminate the requirement for proprietary software or hardware to read the fluorometric res...Thu, 11 Feb 2016 12:11:10 GMTuaf-oipc@alaska.eduhttp://uaf.technologypublisher.com/technology/21412Solid State Infrasound Sensorhttp://uaf.technologypublisher.com/technology/21411Thu, 11 Feb 2016 12:09:24 GMTuaf-oipc@alaska.eduhttp://uaf.technologypublisher.com/technology/21411Pathogen Detection Methodhttp://uaf.technologypublisher.com/technology/21410Thu, 11 Feb 2016 12:05:20 GMTuaf-oipc@alaska.eduhttp://uaf.technologypublisher.com/technology/21410Rapid Response Volcanic Ash Detector for Aircrafthttp://uaf.technologypublisher.com/technology/21401This invention is an integrated system for warning an aircraft, either fixed wing or rotor, of potentially hazardous concentrations of volcanic ash, or other large ambient aerosols, in its surrounding environment.
