Each year Georgia Tech develops hundreds of technologies, and we seek industry collaborators to license and take those technologies from our labs to the market. Technologies are searchable by category, key word, or phrase and include a detailed description of the technology, inventor and patent information, and contact information to learn more about each technology.
Our available technologies are updated periodically but please feel free contact the Office of Industry Engagement team for additional technologies and information.
7107 – Background: Detection and quantification of small particles in liquids are of interest in numerous applications ranging from biomedicine to environmental monitoring. Coulter counters are widely used to that purpose, since they allow rapid quantification and sizing of particles in microfluidic channels. They use resistive pulse sensing, a technique that detects the electrical resistance... Read More
7207 – A non-invasive system to detect the common and dangerous problem of IV Infiltration has been invented by Georgia Tech researchers. Background: IV infiltration is a common problem, where fluid enters surrounding tissue rather than the vein as intended. Infiltration occurs from issues such as solution osmolality, tissue toxicity, vasoconstrictor properties, infusion pressure, regional... Read More
7682 – Background: Infections are a significant risk to patients who receive orthopedic implants, and can often lead to implant failure, tissue necrosis, and amputation. Current approaches for diagnosing orthopedic implant- associated infections include blood tests, radiographic imaging and histological studies. The issues with these methods are that they are slow, tedious and nonspecific. In... Read More
7532 – Background: In most cases of peripheral arterial disease (PAD), the operating surgeon must use a variety of catheters riding on a thin wire known as a ‘guidewire’. This guidewire must be manually navigated through a tortuous pathway of arteries to arrive at the diseased area. Automation of the guidewire therefore reduces surgeon effort and minimizes the time required for a PAD procedure.... Read More
7667 – Background: The hand is the primary object for manipulating objects in our everyday life. Loss of the ability tocontrol the motion of individual fingers and the hand overall, has a significant impact on the qualityof life of an individual. Typically, the loss of the ability to control and manipulate objects is affectedin people with stroke or spinal cord injury, for example. Hence, the... Read More
7425 – Tensegrity lattices for meta-materials and structural applications allow for the building of stronger structures that can be severely deformed without losing their load bearing ability. Background: Due to lack of adequate symmetries on traditional tensional integrity, or tensegrity unit cells, the design of 3-D tensegrity lattices has remained an elusive goal, forcing engineers to...

7612 – Background: Stretchable microelectronics has garnered significant attention from research and industry due to its essential role in large-area, wearable, epidermal and biomedical electronics. However, this technology and its manufacturing processes have been severely constrained by their complexity and lack of scalability. Polymer transistors, as the fundamental building blocks...

7316 – Background: Technical Analysts across various industries are challenged by massive datasets, including multi-source and multi-domain data. Two particularly vexing problems are the confluence of (A) Data Veracity, i.e., highly sparse, misaligned, noisy, and uncertain data, and (B) Data Variety, i.e., unstructured and variable format heterogeneous data. Our proposed solution is a... Read More
7339 – Background: Patient-specific tissue-mimicking phantoms have a wide range of biomedical applications including validation of computational models and imaging techniques, medical device testing, surgery planning, medical education, doctor-patient interaction, etc. Although 3D printing technologies have demonstrated great potential in fabricating patient-specific phantoms, current 3D printed...

7472-7645 – Background: Rapid depolymerization and evaporation of polymers is useful for fabricating systems that have a fixed lifetime or targeted end-of-life. Depolymerization can prevent device detection and capture or reduce disposal in landfills, making it desired in a wide array of polymer-based components ranging from electronic sensors to parachutes. The depolymerization reaction can be... Read More
