Introduction: The environmental impact of singleuse medical plastics is a growing concern. One such plastic component, autoclave laminated plastic (ALP), commonly used in medical sterilization pouches, is typically discarded after use, but it holds potential for recycling. This research paper investigates the feasibility and effectiveness of...

Over the past decades Minimally Invasive Surgery (MIS) has become a standard in abdominal surgery. Due to limited dexterity and bad ergonomics the field of MIS is shifting towards Robot-Assisted MIS (RAMIS). Simultaneously, the field is using increasingly small and steerable instruments to reduce invasiveness. Surgeon now work with fragile...

The effectiveness of ultraviolet (UV) irradiation for disinfection has been well-known for more than a century. Recent advances in light­-emitting diode (LED) technology have brought UV LEDs to the consumer market. These offer many advantages over traditional gas­-discharge lamps, allowing UV radiation to be generated with higher reliability in...

Background: Laparoscopy is a minimally-invasive surgical procedure that uses long slender instruments that require much smaller incisions than conventional surgery. This leads to faster recovery times, fewer post-surgical wound infections and shorter hospital stays. For these reasons, laparoscopy could be particularly advantageous to patients...

The current COVID-19 pandemic shows the necessity of personal protective equipment and face masks. In the project, a filter module with an in-situ ultraviolet-sterilization technique is designed that can serve as a new kind of smart personal protective equipment (SPPE). This technique is not used in wearable devices as of yet. The project thus...

The dissemination of DNA and xenogenic elements across waterways is under scientific and public spotlight due to new gene-editing tools, such as do-it-yourself (DIY) CRISPR-Cas kits deployable at kitchen table. Over decades, prevention of spread of genetically modified organisms (GMOs), antimicrobial resistances (AMR), and pathogens from...

Female sterilisation is difficult to access in many low- and middle-income countries. Opt Medical wants to solve this problem by developing a clip that can be placed around the Fallopian tubes during C-sections without immediately affecting the fertility. By activating the clip at a suitable time, a clamping mechanism occludes the Fallopian tube...

In order to perform medical surgeries, hospitals keep large inventories of surgical instruments. These instruments need to be sterilized before each surgery. Typically the instruments are kept in trays. Multiple trays may be required for a single surgery, while a single tray may contain instruments that are required for multiple surgical...

In this study, we tested a new approach to facilitate the application of white rot fungi (WRF) under non-sterile conditions, by introducing grain sorghum as carrier and sole carbon and nutrient source for WRF. To this end, Trametes versicolor was immobilized on sorghum, and its ability to remove humic acid (HA) from synthetic and real...
