NEW YORK, May 17, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- U.S. Patent No. 9,649,013 was issued today to Donald Spector for a thermometer sized device that can instantly recognize specific bacteria, offer a diagnosis and display the results in real time on the device.
The new patent has what appears to be a smooth glass rounded end that has a microscopic slit that actually traps cells and puts them in a slide format. One side of the glass fiber optic provides light while the other side connects to a microscopic camera that then transmits the image to databases that analyze the cells and diagnose the specific type of bacteria. That information is then transmitted back in seconds where it is displayed using thin film technology on the thermometer sized wireless device.
Spector is Chairman Emeritus of New York College of Health Professions. He is widely recognized as one of the world's most prolific inventors with hundreds of issued patents. He has opened several multi-billion dollar industries with major corporations including Bristol-Myers Squibb which set up a separate division for some of his patents, AMF which launched the first hydraulic exerciser as the world famous Bruce Jenner Exerciser, also called the Muscleworker, as well as products for Mattel, Hasbro, Sun Chemical, Faberge, Remington and numerous other companies. Aside from hundreds of licensed products Spector also developed the first known patents for location based advertising, which was the basis for one of the first Super Apps and now is one of the largest businesses on the Internet. He has donated today's new patent to New York College, under the IP policy of the College.
Also known for his ventures into the entertainment industry, Donald Spector partnered with Mitsui & Co. (one of the largest companies in the world), where he helped broker the sale of NBC in the Pacific Rim to Mitsui, as well as introducing QVC to Mitsui , which purchased half the rights of QVC for Japan and other parts of the Pacific Rim. He has been an executive producer on Broadway and president of a major record label, which featured in its format artists such as Elvis Presley, Stevie Wonder, Paul McCartney and Pavarotti. His record label was in partnership with Handleman, at the time the largest audio/video distributor in the United States.
Spector attended the Columbia Science Honors Program at the age of 12. He later partnered with Victor Frenkil, the owner of Baltimore Contractors, the builder of part of Baltimore Washington International Airport, the Chesapeake Bay Bridge, the Baltimore Subway system as well as hundreds of other major projects. He then joined with his cousin the owner of John Henry, the richest horse in racing history to create a conglomerate of consumer product companies. Spector is well known for his work in the fragrance industry, with medical technologies, security systems and computer technologies.
Lisa Pamintuan, President of New York College says, "This new technology, added to the College's massive Intellectual Technology Portfolio which includes other donations from Spector, including patents in 3D printing, UV destruction of bacteria, acupressure clothing, as well a breakthrough Hologram Technologies and other technologies, have made our College a major force in Intellectual Property on a world class stage."
