The National Cancer Institute (NCI) seeks licensees for an automated digital pathology device which integrates tissue sectioning, staining, and image acquisition. The device is compatible with high-throughput data analyses.
Scientists at the National Cancer Institute (NCI) have developed an engineered bacteriophage lambda () vector for displaying antigens to be used as a vaccine in treatment of cancers and infectious diseases. The NCI seeks licensing and/or co-development research collaborations for further development of the Bacteriophage based-vaccine system.
The National Cancer Institute (NCI) seeks licensees for humanized mice that express the human isomer of mesothelin (MSLN) in the thyroid. NCI created Bl6/TPO mice for studies of mesothelin as a target for research, diagnostic, or therapeutics involving human cancers.
The National Cancer Institute''s Laboratory of Cell Biology is seeking statements of capability or interest from parties interested in collaborative research to further develop, evaluate, or commercialize bodipy conjugated tyrosine kinase inhibitors that are currently used in the clinic for the treatment of CML or gastric cancers.
The National Cancer Institute (NCI) seeks research licensees for a process that reduces nucleic acid (RNA and DNA) degradation and improves protein integrity in tissue preserved as fixed paraffin embedded specimens.
The National Cancer Institute (NCI) seeks research, co-development, or licensing partners for software that uses computational approaches in cancer diagnosis. NCI researchers have recently developed a computational approach for detecting, quantifying, and mapping Mitotic Hotspots in whole slide images of tumor tissue. This technology has demonstrated high reproducibility that is unaffected by diagnostic skill or fatigue, allowing standardization of tumor cell proliferation assessment across institutions.
National Cancer Institute (NCI) researchers have developed a novel software tool for uniform recording of Mitotic Figure (MF) counts via conventional and/or digital microscopy. With this technology, diagnostic centers can standardize electronic recording, summation, and transcription of clinical data during surgical pathology examination. NCI seeks licensing partners to further develop this application for use in diagnosis and detection of malignant cancers.
The National Cancer Institute (NCI) seeks research co-development opportunities and/or licensees for a new biomedical device for biopsy tissue collection and storage in a sterile, well-defined environment.
The NCI Radiation Oncology Branch and the NHLBI Laboratory of Single Molecule Biophysics seek parties to co-develop fluorescent nanodiamonds for use as in vivo and in vitro optical tracking probes toward commercialization.
Device is used to guide a stream of oxygen or carbon dioxide over a dish of cells during fluorescence microscopy. Invention includes the 3D printing software to create the device. The device makes it possible to easily provide a steady source of oxygen or carbon dioxide to cells while operating a fluorescent microscope to oxidize fluorophores for later visualization in electron microscopy. NCI seeks commercial partners to license this technology.
The National Cancer Institute (NCI) seeks co-development partners and/or licensees for polymer-cast inserts for cell histology and microscopy; a system for high throughput three-dimensional (3D) cell culture and screening microscopy.
Scientists at the National Cancer Institute (NCI) seek licensees or co-development partners for a multispectral detection method capable of discriminating different Molecular NanoTag components. The capacity to discriminate further increases the sensitivity of detection for NanoTag molecules. Adaptations of this technology could also apply to incorporate spectral scatter detection in other cytometric and microfluidic systems.
Extracellular vesicles (EVs) are lipid spheres released from cells. EVs contain proteins that can serve as diagnostic biomarkers indicating the cell state at time of release. Improved detection and phenotyping of EVs and their protein cargo could lead to better cancer diagnostic and prognostic tests, as well as improved therapeutic uses. The National Cancer Institute (NCI) seeks research co-development partners and/or licensees for a software package that performs high-throughput multi-dimensional analysis of EV biomarkers.
