A new method for the molecular diagnosis of this disease has been developed. It is based on the quantification of a set of microRNAs (miRNAs) transported by plasma exosomes, and in addition, this set allows diagnosing different variants of the disease. This new method has the advantage of providing new biomarkers that allow a rapid and reliable diagnosis of HHT, since the current methods are not valid for all the patients affected with HHT.

The Wheatstone bridge generates a differential output voltage with respect to magnetic field gradient along the sensor's sensitive direction. Each resistor has 45 kΩ nominal resistance and output of the bridge is purely ratiometric with the power supply voltage. Due to our unique technology and design, MRA 1427 is highly sensitive and has the ability to detect signals at the wide air gap. The excellent thermal and voltage stability makes it suitable for challenging environments. The MRA 1427 GMR sensor available in 8T-DFN package with dimensions 3 mm x 3 mm x 0.75 mm.

Emotongue is not a simple app, it is the app that everybody was looking for! It had been designed for a research project carried out in the Department of Sciences of Education of the University of Alcalá, Spain, but due to its features and the great benefits it has, now it is available for every customer interested in improving his/her resources for managing his/her emotional world. Emotongue has been created for helping people to know their emotions, connect with them and learn how to manage them. The app is a tool easy to use, with a colored and dynamic design. It sends the user 5 notifications per day, and she/he has at his/her disposal 2 hours to answer each notification either by a written message or by an audio. The app is available in every country in which people speak English and/or Spanish. An improved version of the app could send users a feedback about their evolution in their management of their emotions and their use of the app. A part from the app, the authors could offer a service to companies interested in it, by creating courses about emotional management, designed according to the company’s needs, something very difficult to find in the trade market.

Antibodies have been generated using novel functionalized derivatives of ochratoxin A. These immunoreagents have shown their efficacy in both direct and indirect competitive ELISA to detect concentrations close to parts per trillion. We are looking for companies interested in patent licensing for the development of fast, sensitive and portable kits for the analysis of ochratoxin A in foods and beverages based on these antibodies. The license of the patent is offered Effective, fast and accurate detection Ochratoxin A has a higher incidence in cereals, wine, juices and coffee One of the most harmful and frequent mycotoxins in food is ochratoxin A. Its presence is a real problem for human health due to its toxicity, and it causes significant economic losses to various productive sectors. The main fungi producing ochratoxin A belongs to the genera Penicillium and Aspergillus, and the products with the highest incidence are cereals, wine, juices and coffee. The small concentrations at which this potent toxin is usually found commonly require the use of sophisticated chromatographic methods. An alternative is the generation of antibodies against ochratoxin A with superior performance to the existing ones that allow this toxin being recognized with high affinity and specificity. These immunoreagents can be easily implemented in various analytical platforms, from the simplest, such as competitive ELISAs and immunochromatographic strips, to more complex, like chips or biosensors of different types, which allows us to simultaneously analyze a large number of samples in low-resource settings such as warehouses, cellars and even farmlands. Main applications and advantages Ochratoxin A derivatives functionalized at new positions have been synthesized that faithfully preserve the structure and characteristics of this potent mycotoxin. These new compounds have proven to be extremely efficient as haptens to generate antibodies capable of recognizing ochratoxin A with an affinity and selectivity not previously described. Immunoassays developed using these immunoreagents have been shown to be very sensitive, allowing analysis of ochratoxin A at levels close to 10 parts per trillion. These new methods are faster than instrumental procedures, especially when analyzing complex samples such as wine and coffee. The generated immunoreagents are easily adaptable to portable methods, such as ELISA kits or immunochromatographic strips.
