      To rapidly diagnose infectious organisms causing blood sepsis, bacteria must be rapidly separated from blood, a very difficult process considering that concentrations of bacteria are many orders of magnitude lower than ...
    • Rapid separation of very low concentrations of bacteria from blood 

      Buchanan, Clara M.; Wood, Ryan L.; Hoj, Taalin R.; Alizadeh, Mahsa; Bledsoe, Colin G.; Wood, Madison E.; McClellan, Daniel S.; Blanco, Rae; Hickey, Caroline L.; Ravsten, Tanner V.; Husseini, Ghaleb; Robison, Richard A.; Pitt, William G. (Elsevier, 2017)
      A rapid and accurate diagnosis of the species and antibiotic resistance of bacteria in septic blood is vital to increase survival rates of patients with bloodstream infections, particularly those with carbapenem-resistant ...
    • Re-Presenting Cultural Heritage with VR Panoramic Photography: Lessons Drawn from Media Art History 

      Thompson, Seth (International Panorama Council, 2018)
      Developing a history of virtual reality (VR) panoramic photography not only in relation to the development of illusion and immersion, but also its content, will allow for a more robust history, so that those who are working ...
