Universidad de Alicante posted this:Biological control of pests: breeding protocol for Sphaerophoria rueppellii for use in biological control of aphidsMembers of CIBIO Research Institute, led by Professor Maria Angeles Marcos Garcia, head of the Associated Unit to CSIC, have developed a method to raise the dipterans predator Sphaerophoria rueppellii. This insect is known for its efficiency and high specificity predatory sirphid being more suitable as biological control agent against agricultural pests from aphids in a Mediterranean climate crops. The use of this natural enemy for biological control of pests will reduce pesticide use in both agricultural crops and in urban gardens. Have been optimized environmental conditions for breeding, such as diet (both immature and adult stages) to ensure a higher reproductive potential and higher rates of survival. The group is looking for companies interested in acquiring the technology for commercial exploitation. Innovative aspects 1- The only species of industrially produced sirphid (Episyphus balteatus) does not effectively control aphid pests in Mediterranean cultures, this is why the selection of another species of sirphid to act as a viable alternative in the field Mediterranean was needed. The novelty of this specie is that and in most cases of biological control, using species that are commercially available, or not part of the fauna, in this case, we have managed to breed the species in field trials, proved to have the greatest potential for control. 2- This is the first time that this predator specie is bred in the laboratory and maintain continuously during successive generations breeding in significant amounts from individuals. 3- Due to the invention has been developed by a consolidated research group, it will be applied a Quality Control (under the rules of the International Organisation for Biological and Integrated Control), to ensure the viability and product quality

Universidad de Alicante posted this:Biometric identification system based on eye blinkingThe Optics and Vision Sciences research group at the University of Alicante has developed a method for biometric authentication by recognizing the blinking of a subject. The method consists of studying and characterizing the changes in the intensity of diffused light during the blinking process. Those changes are used to classify the blinks using different algorithms. A subject can then be identified according to the parameters recorded. This method allows the authentication of subjects by means of a non-contact procedure, and even unconsciously. Commercial or built-in on mobile devices video cameras or webcams can be used for its application provided that the video is recorded at rates higher than 150 frames per second (fps). We are looking for companies interested in the commercial exploitation of this technology as well as in adapting it for the development of related projects.

Laijo Jose posted this:Bioresorbable polymer composite for bone-soft tissue fixation.An advanced and cost effective bioresorbable, biocompatible polymer composite for bone soft tissue fixation has been developed, and their use in preparing different orthopedic devices that serves the purpose of fixation of soft tissue injuries and low-load bearing bone fractures. The use of the given bioresorbable polymer composite in orthopedic devices is an attempt to replace the traditional metallic implants and making it accessible to masses at affordable prices, and therefore overcome the limitations of currently available bioresorbable orthopedic devices in the market. The technology produces a novel bioresorbable, biocompatible polymer composite for bone soft tissue fixation. The polymer composite biomaterial is composed of bioresorbable polymer such as poly-ε-caprolactone (PCL), natural fiber silk fibroin and an osteoconductive component like Magnesium oxide (MgO) in nanoparticle form and it can be used to prepare different orthopedic devices. The silk fiber of 20% and MgO nanoparticles in concentration of 10% were mixed together with PCL as base polymer in twin-screw extruder to produce composite orthopedic biomaterial. The newly developed bone screw is having a design with screw head shape, thread-tip design, thread profile and volume. It is found that millions of screws are being used for bone or soft-tissue fixations per year and the need of such fixations devices in world orthopedic market is ever-growing. The cost effective bioresorbable composite device thus made is also having wider clinical applications with its higher bioactivity (biomineralization), biocompatibility, infection resistivity and proper bone remodeling properties.
