Wireless, Handheld Electronic Medical Record Application

Healthcare providers can view, update, and share patient information from a handheld device. PocketChart™, available in numerous medical specialty editions, is a wireless, handheld electronic medical record application that will help physicians increase productivity, reduce transcription costs, and increase revenue through improved code levels. PocketChart enables a PocketPC to synchronize with a desktop computer, allowing healthcare providers to continuously update, view, exchange, and print patient information. It is designed for use at point-of-care in a variety of clinical settings including hospitals, homes, and extended-care facilities.

Microfluidic Extraction of Biomarkers Using Water as Solvent

Terahertz modulation of permittivity of water would enable solvation of molecules of interest. A proposed device, denoted a miniature microfluidic biomarker extractor (μ-EX), would extract trace amounts of chemicals of interest from samples, such as soils and rocks. Traditionally, such extractions are performed on a large scale with hazardous organic solvents; each solvent capable of dissolving only those molecules lying within narrow ranges of specific chemical and physical characteristics that notably include volatility, electric charge, and polarity. In contrast, in the μ-EX, extractions could be performed by use of small amounts (typically between 0.1 and 100 μL) of water as a universal solvent.
