This device offers the possibility of simplifying the analysis process, reducing the consumption of resources and a high mixing efficiency is achieved. A laboratory-constructed prototype is available for any demonstration. The research group is looking for companies interested in license agreement.
UNIVERSIDAD DE ALICANTE posted this:Innovative procedure for the preparation of silica fillings without shrinkageThe research group Carbon Materials and Environment of the University of Alicante has developed a procedure to prepare silica fillings preventing their shrinkage by the deposition of a thin film prior to the synthesis of the filling. Modifying the said thin film, the filling properties are modified, obtaining highly satisfactory results in the case of the mesoporous thin films in all case studies. This method also allows obtaining silica fillings with different diameters and their incorporation into different types of supports such as glass, steel or honeycombing cordierite monoliths. Following this procedure the shrinkage of the fillings is avoided, which is a common occurrence with the established preparation protocols.
Fundació URV posted this:NEW PROCEDURE FOR OBTAINING MONOLAYERS OF FUNCTIONALIZED NANOPARTICLESThis new procedure (not described in the bibliography) allows the manufacture of monolayers of metal nanoparticles linked by molecules of organic compounds. As you can see in Specifications, this procedure consists in two successive processes. One of the main advantages of this technology is the minimization of impurities in the functionalized monolayer compared to commonly used techniques. Besides, the manufacture of Schotty diode with this new procedure has been shown for the first time. In the same line, this procedure allows the use of monolayers of metal nanoparticles for metabolite detection. These are two unique and differents aspects of this technology in relation to other known used techniques.

The establishment of a start-up software business or a licensing agreement with a clean room services company are two possible routes to market. Industry partners will have the added benefit of a highly experienced DIT project team to help deliver the final product. StrataVision has featured strongly in national (Enterprise Ireland) and international (Hong Kong PU) enterprise awards.
Universidad de Alcalá-OTRI posted this:Device and method for ventricular repolarization alternans detection by windowing.A Spanish research group from the Department of Signal Theory and Communications at University of Alcalá (Spain) has designed a device and method for detecting ventricular repolarization alternans based on continuous time analysis and the extraction of the information using windowing. As a main feature, the method presents high robustness against noise and it is very robust against variability of heart rate due to standardization techniques used. Moreover, it includes a procedure to separate the repolarization information from artifacts. Because of these characteristics, it is particularly suitable for implementation in portable monitoring devices and implantable devices. The group is looking for companies of Medical equipment and health technology to reach licensing agreements or collaboration and commercial agreements for technical assistance.
