Topical Delivery for Analgesic Medications

A company seeks new non-oral delivery mechanisms for analgesics. Non-oral methods avoid the stomach and the intestine. These new mechanisms might be topical; that is, in contact with the outer layer of the skin. However, other nonoral mechanisms are open for consideration. Non-oral administration bypasses both the stomach and the liver and can deliver more active to the bloodstream more quickly per dose.

Looking to Acquire Audio-Video Technology Patents and Portfolios

The buyer is actively searching for individual patents or patent portfolios related to video and audio delivery and play-back on consoles, handsets and a wide range of consumer electronics devices. Technologies of interest include data compression, video manipulation, watermarking, digital rights management (DRM), video play-back, and video transmission. Essentially, the ideal patents would support the delivery of video (and embedded audio) streams to a consumer device, manipulation of the image (for example to change the display format), compression, decompression of the video stream and display on a handset, PDA, set-top-box or other consumer device.

New Analgesic Actives

A company is looking for the next generation in analgesics. There are several fine analgesics on the market, both by prescription and over the counter, that vary in dosage load, dosage form, molecular size, speed of effectiveness, and side effects or toxicity (if any). New actives in the realm of analgesia are sought, and the form of their delivery is open. Certain aspects of the new analgesic are of particular interest, including speed of effectiveness, toleration, and (shelf-life) fragility.

In-Process Detection of Defects During Welding

Technology is required to enable “in-process” or real-time detection of defects during the welding process. This could be achieved by a system that can monitor any combination of accessible parameters during the weld process and then by analyzing changes, ascertain the presence of a weld defect, its locations, and, if possible, its nature. Potential solutions should be suitable for industrial production lines. Respond to this TechNeed at: Email: nasatech@yet2.com Phone: 781-972-0600

Microwavable Packaging That Produces Authentic Grilled Foods

This organization wants to create authentic grilled foods in a home microwave oven with typical microwave food preparation times and convenience. Authentic grilled foods combine a slightly charred taste with a less fatty, cleaner feel, and the appearance of grill marks seared by high heat into the surface of the food. This need seeks to reproduce as closely as possible the texture and quality of perfectly grilled foods. Respond to this TechNeed at: Email: nasatech@yet2.com Phone: 781-972-0600
