MSU research discovered a way to increase the accuracy, resolution, and sensitivity of the most common type of mass spectrometer, known as time-of-flight (TOF) mass analyzers. The MSU solution can be implemented into existing mass spectrometers or it could be incorporated into the next generation of devices. MSU has a patent pending on the technology and has made it available for licensing.
The fifth technology is a compound derived from a popular fruit-based nutritional supplement. It has a unique ability to protect against influenza, reestablish immunity in compromised patients and boost immunity in people who could be exposed to bio-warfare agents or localized endemic diseases. The compound is fast-working and non-toxic. MSU has a patent pending on the technology.
The sixth technology is also based on compounds that are often used as a dietary supplement. These compounds are easily derived from common food plants, such as apple peels, pomegranates, grapes and tea. MSU researchers have discovered that the compound shows strong potential for preventing and treating a range of viral infections, because it blocks the attachment of viruses to cells and stimulates an anti-viral response in the cell. These compounds could be used as stand-alone treatment to prevent virus infections, or as a combination therapy to enhance existing antiviral therapies. MSU has a patent pending on this technology.
MSU currently has 191 licenses on technologies developed by f
