An Automated Microrobotic Platform for Rapid Detection of C. diff Toxins
Clostridium difficile (C. diff) infection is a serious public health threat, and early diagnosis of this toxin-mediated disease is important. This paper presents a fluorescence imaging-integrated microrobotic system and related methods for automated and rapid detection of C. diff toxins. The automated mobile detection process finishes within 20 minutes, and then qualitative and semi-quantitative results are immediately given. This process is at least 8 times shorter than that of the conventional ELISA. The proposed microrobotic platform offers an automated, rapid and low-cost C. diff toxin detection technique that has good competency for future clinical use... Read more

A Novel Algorithm for Remote Photoplethysmography: Spatial Subspace Rotation
Wenjin Wang, Sander Stuijk, and Gerard de Haan, Eindhoven University of Technology, Philips Research, The Netherlands In this paper, we propose a conceptually novel algorithm, namely “Spatial Subspace Rotation” (2SR), that improves the robustness of remote photoplethysmography. Based on the assumption of... Read more
