Universidad de Alcalá-OTRI posted this:Development and method of construction of a new electrochemical sensor of Magnesium (Mg2 +), without the need to add organic salts, additives or organic solvents to the sampleThe research group in Bioelectrochemistry and Biosensors of the University of Alcalá in collaboration with the Textile Industry Research Association (AITEX) has developed an electrochemical sensor of magnesium (Mg2 +) and a construction method based on the formation of a polymeric three-dimensional network that allows the entrapment / immobilization of a selective indicator for Mg2 +, eriochrome black T, by the use of a crosslinking agent and a polymer. The combination of these three reagents allows the construction of the sensor on any conductive surface, avoiding the electro polymerization of the indicator. The resulting sensor allows to measure MG2 + in any type of samples, without the need to add organic salts, additives or organic solvents. The quantification of Mg2 + is done directly by incubating the sensor in the sample containing the analyte, resulting in a modification of the amperometric signal proportional to its concentration. This method has many applications especially in health and biomedical sector since Mg2 + participates in such important activities as neuronal, neuromuscular transmission, or regulation of blood pressure and plays a key role in various pathologies such as vascular and migraines headache. The group is looking for companies in the agro-food, bio-sanitary and environmental sectors, with the aim of reaching technical collaboration agreements, commercial agreements or patent licenses.

uacoopera posted this:Device for chromatic counting and quantification of organisms or particles in a suspensionThe execution of ecotoxicological tests with organisms in liquid medium, eg. Daphnia sp., requires its counting and characterization to evaluate several parameters. Currently the score is performed by technicians by direct observation (“naked eye”) of exposed organisms. This process is slow, tiring and subject to human error, and it can have adverse effects on visual acuity of the technical staff involved in the count. This patent, developed in a Portuguese university, solves the problem by counting and automating this process with gains in runtime and accuracy and enabling quick and efficient recount. It follows the optimization of the process of assessing the exposure to contaminants in tests that require the use of small-sized organizations. The university is looking for companies interested in the production and commercialization of this industrial equipment.

Laijo Jose posted this:Device for detecting early cervical and oral cancerThis device is used for detection of most of the early cancerous and high-grade precancerous lesions of cervix and oral cavity. It gives a complete white light spectrum (equivalent to day light 5500-6000 K) and provides magnification with interchangeable lenses with optical power from 1 to 4 dioptre. The light of this instrument goes deeper inside the mucosal folds and provides a clear view with magnification for the differentiation of various categories of lesions. The aceto-white lesions of the cervix are screened by means of this device after the application of 5% freshly prepared acetic acid on cervix. The oral cavity is rinsed with 1% acetic acid solution for 20 seconds followed by water to remove the mucous and saliva and the examination is done. If any lesion suspicious for cancer is identified by this device, the observations regarding location, size, morphology and colour of the lesion are recorded and then confirmed cytologically and histologically. It is proved from the validation studies that this low cost portable device is with sufficient sensitivity and specificity in detecting high grade pre-cancerous and early cancerous lesions of uterine cervix and oral cavity. The technology provides a high sensitivity with a specificity of 94.3% for precancerous and early cancerous lesions of uterine cervix and reduces false positive results.

Júlia Nebot posted this:Device for passive supression of vortex-induced vibrations (VIV) in structuresThe present invention relates to a device for suppression of Vortex-induced vibrations (known as VIV) in flexible structures or in elastically supported rigid structures. Vortex-induced vibrations are a type of fluid-structure interactions that are consequence of the unsteady periodic forces generated in the wake of bluff bodies when affected by currents. The forces induced on the structures as a result of the large region of separated flow in the wake of the structure, result in vibrations. Vibrations can be fatal in engineering applications. Structures with low mass and damping are the ones in which VIV can be more important. In marine applications, most of the structures are characterised by combined low mass-damping. Although VIV is crucial in marine applications, the invention described here could also be used to prevent VIV in other non-marine scenarios such as structures affected by winds.
