Telepresence robot for healthcare and human assistance: The revolution on the internet of things has enabled every one of us to multitask across the globe sitting in our office. In this scenario, there are situations where we may be compelled to attend to more than two tasks in a day at distant locations. Additionally, the overheads on the logistics incurred during such visits are too high, and also these travels introduce a lot of fatigue. Telebotz manufactured by CTPL serves as a one-stop solution. Telebotz is a telepresence robot designed and manufactured by CTPL that can be controlled for navigation using your mobile phone. Telebotz also enables the user to interact with people in its environment through a voice and video interface. The user can save on energy, expenses due to travel, and other logistics.

Electronic nose is a potential tool to detect chemicals and has various applications in the field of health-care, food and environment. eNose based on nanostructured sensors has gained wide attention in detecting various chemicals. However, it has the disadvantage of cross sensitivity with other interfering gases and vapours. Hence we aim at developing portable devices by enhancing the selectivity and sensitivity of nanostructured sensors along with suitable discrimination algorithms.

Accurate and timely diagnosis of genetic disorders such as cancers and rare diseases is a complex and expensive process. Traditional molecular biology and imaging (MRI, CT, PET) based methods are expensive and error prone. Often misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis leads to lethal outcomes. Time given for clinical diagnosis is also limited in highly populated countries like India. To overcome these challenges, genix.ai will employ artificial intelligence based methods to detect molecular signatures in early diagnosis using next generation sequencing (NGS) and Imaging data. Our research based methodology is proven in the lab and preclinical setup around the world.

The irritation potential of the cosmetic and pharmaceutical products that are formulated are evaluated using animal experiments, especially on Rabbit’s cornea. Since 41 countries banned animal experiments in cosmetic testing and drug research, regulatory bodies have suggested a few alternatives, one such method is the testing using the reconstructed corneal epithelial model. Our corneal epithelial tissue will be developed using bioprinting technology, which will be a superior model compared to the current market available tissue models. We have already developed reconstructed skin epidermis using bioprinting technology with the support of the DST - Department of Science and Technology.

Canine Parvoviral enteritis is one of the fatal diseases and is characterized by severe hemorrhagic gastroenteritis in canines (usually puppies) caused by Canine parvovirus (CPV). Canine parvovirus type 2 (CPV-2) is a non-enveloped, single-stranded DNA virus that is highly contagious among canines. The Chicken IgY antibody was used for the passive protection of pathogen infections, especially intestinal infections, such as rotavirus, Salmonella, and exhibited good efficiencies. The Chicken egg yolk antibody (IgY) isolation arises from the possible applications of these immunoglobulins in diagnostics and therapeutics. Powdered whole eggs or yolks have been used in veterinary medicine as an inexpensive immunoglobulin Y source for the treatment of enteric diseases. Incorporating feed-grade egg yolk antibodies into animal diets has been examined extensively in an attempt to limit pathogenic diarrhea causing by Escherichia coli in swine, and limit Salmonella establishment in calves and mice, as well as Campylobacter, Clostridium, and Salmonella in poultry. Thus, therapeutic administration of the IgY might reduce the clinical use of antibiotics, and minimize the risk of developing bacterial antibiotic resistance.

Organic wastes contribute about 10% of the total greenhouse gas emissions globally. Hence, there is an immediate need for efficient waste management. Here, we propose to utilize organic wastes such as food wastes, kitchen wastes, and fruit wastes and convert them into value-added products such as shoe polish, grease, disinfectant soaps, etc. using an entomological approach. Plans are also in place to convert the organic wastes into food, fuel, fertilizer, and a variety of organic products. We are planning to establish a proof-of-concept to develop products that are of commercial value using the support received from ABLEST-TBI.

Incubatee Brief:

Vegetable oils play a vital role in the human diet since it acts as the energy source, see as the building blocks of lipid hormones, and is considered the vital portion of the bio-membrane. In south Asian countries like Pakistan and India, cooking oil intake is comparatively high owing to the higher consumption of street-side fried foods. The food stall workers, in order to survive on the higher oil cost, tend to reuse the cooking oils, mainly palm oils for many cycles. In some places, they tend to purchase used oils from restaurants. This repeated heating of ~3-6 times of oil to around ~200 °C tends to undergo thermal oxidation and auto-oxidation which is the topmost concern since they tend to generate numerous free radicals. The free radical generation in oil and its persistent intake knowingly or unknowingly is associated with lethal effects on humans. So, a mandatory action is required to test the oil quality from both the consumer as well as from the manufacturer side. Based on this need, a paper-based portable, on-spot bio-electrochemical sensor has been planned to develop for instantaneous detection of the oil quality using ROS as a marker.

Jack fruit waste is generally disposed of at landfills or by combusting directly, causing global warming. Every year jackfruit worth 2000 crore is becoming wasted in India. So, the present incubation process is to scale up the comprehensive utilization of Jack fruit waste through an integrated biorefinery approach to dispose of zero waste JFP for the circular economy. The proof of the concept is ready, and the scaleup of the following innovations is proposed

1.Hybrid hydrolysis and fermentation of delignified JFP for the production of bioethanol
2.The extraction of Kraft lignin and Pectin for direct marketing.
3.The reinvention of fermentative residues as potential biofertilizers.
