  • pathOtrak, LLC

    A University of Maryland start-up that has licensed a technology that enables the rapid and accurate separation of food-borne pathogens, such as bacteria, from complex samples. This portable and easy-to-use technology uses a microfluidic chip device to bypass time-consuming processing steps to separate and test food-borne pathogens from unprocessed samples. Consequently, this technology offers speedy detection of any food contamination before the food reaches the consumers.

  • MF Fire Logo

    MF Fire

    MF Fire licensed the Mulciber Stove, the first Automated Ultra-Clean wood stove. The Mulciber Stove uses a forced-air combustion system, a smart controller, and advanced combustion techniques to reduce emissions, boost efficiency, and simplify user experience. Traditional wood stoves rely on the fire to regulate combustion airflow, resulting in harmful particulate emissions, wasteful inefficiencies, and the need for constant user attention. In contrast, the Mulciber Stove’s forced-air system delivers air when and where it is needed. This innovation paves the way for many others, such as a unique two stage combustion, an advanced heat recovering exhaust system, and a smart-controller that continuously monitors conditions in the stove and adjusts combustion air. As a result, the Mulciber Stove burns cleaner, more efficiently, and without the need for the extensive user attention required in competitors models.

  • Calabash Biosciences

    Calabash Biosciences is based on a technology that uses novel molecular containers for efficient drug delivery applications. These molecular containers first conceived and created by University of Maryland’s (UMCP) investigators improve the solubilization of drugs and allow them to be easily accessed by the body. The enhanced solubilization makes them superior to the currently available cyclodextrixn class of compounds. Calabash was initiated as a follow-up to collaborative research efforts between investigators at the UMCP and Mass General Hospital. Their collaboration involved the study of drug solubilization applications, in particular, the reversal of neuromuscular blocking (NMB) or anesthesia inducing agents. Calabash is in the process of developing new formulations for a variety of currently available drugs in the market.
