The parentage verification or individuality identification test identifies specific gene markers that are highly variable and inherited from both parents. It does not determine species or breed type. With the list of DNA databank, a molecular biology laboratory can determine the genotype of an...

This invention relates to a method of depositing multiple materials in an additive manufacturing process, and more particularly but not exclusively in a selective laser melting process. Each material will have its specific hopper consisting of variable slot length, thus producing an efficient yet...

This innovation developed by researchers at Wits University is a neurosponge for the restriction, repair and regeneration of damaged neuronal tissue

Traumatic spinal cord injuries, due to their devastating nature, present several interventional challenges which include: extensive inflammation...

Various techniques are available to locate magnetic bodies buried in the subsurface, particularly when it comes to mining explorations. Existing techniques have restrictions and problems, such as only working with profile data, being restricted to a specific source type, or failing in the presence...

The BASE architecture provides a platform that allows any human or machine resource to self-organise around activities that need them. It is self-improving, incrementally scalable, and adapts to the structure of the organisation. BASE-enabled resources and activities allow traceability, visibility...

Omega Caro-E Xtra combines Omega-3 fatty acids with 11 different carotenoids and five different forms of vitamin E, all derived from Palm oil and manufactured by a patented process in Malaysia. It also contains 50% of the daily requirement for vitamin D. The concept was created and developed in...

We have developed a universal, non-invasive remote condition monitoring system for ventilators.
It provides remote monitoring of a heterogeneous/ multi-brand fleet of ventilators and patients’ respiratory function. In an already stretched healthcare system with limited human resources this will...

Postharvest table grapes are susceptible to fungal infection even when stored at the optimal temperature of −0.5°C. The most important pathogen of stored Table Grapes is grey mould, which is caused by Botrytis cinerea. Some countries fumigate their grapes with sulphur dioxide gas. However, if the...
