Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas posted this:Kits for cell culture based on hydrogel coatingsCSIC and Complutense University of Madrid have developed new kits for cell culture based on cytocompatible hydrogels coated onto stiff substrates. Due to the excellent adhesion of the hydrogel to these substrates is possible to have mechanically robust platforms, easy to handle as required in a cellular biology laboratory. These new kits have been successfully tested showing an excellent cellular proliferation on the surface of the hydrogel. Besides, this technology allows the detachment of a cell monolayer without the need of chemical or biological agents preserving the viability of cell harvesting. Industrial partners from the biotechnology with expertise in cell culture are being sought to collaborate through a patent license agreement. An offer for Patent Licensing

Institut Català d'Investigació Química (ICIQ) posted this:Photoinitiators for visible-light induced living polymerizationA new class of photoinitiators of living polymerization induced by visible light has been developed and is made available for testing (under MTA) and/or licensing. The developed initiators trigger the curing of resins by irradiation with low-intensity visible light, while providing polymers with good control of chain length. In addition, through decomposition of the initator, the cured material presents a different colour than the uncured resin.

This project covers different embodiments that have other researchers involved on different subsets (therapeutics, photoinitiators). For example, there is a biological aspect, whereby a biological assay is a result of a pathway started with reactive species generation. Project ID : 9-2015-3191

Universitat de Girona posted this:3D Additive manufacturing machine for tubular medical devicesThe 3D Additive Manufacturing Machine developed for tubular medical devices is based on the Fused Filament Fabrication (FFF) and the 3-axis 3D printing technologies. The filament is melted into the extruder nozzle, which deposited the material onto a heated computer-controlled platform.

The invention, that’s been arising interest in the business sector, locally and nationally, aims at the production of habitable modules using the soil in inhospitable locations, and it was specifically thought for Mars. The advantages of this process are the total automation, and it distinguishes itself from other solutions proposed until now for providing a closed construction, airtight, with total habitability, safe against cosmic radiation with other devices, and the possibility of holding distinctive functions. He University is looking for partners that may be interested in financing the development of this tool.
Brunel University London posted this:Zagblade: Reduction of aero acoustic pollution by introducing novel serrated trailing edgesAn aerofoil blade design that reduces trailing edge noise by means of a saw-tooth serration filled with a porous material. The serration and porous material work constructively with each other to significantly improve the aero-acoustic performance. An optimal choice of the porous materials has been identified, where it can achieve broadband noise reduction whilst completely suppressing the vortex shedding tone. This new device is more industrially-ready than the conventional “add-on” type serration due to its superior structural integrity. In addition it produces an aerodynamic performance similar to that of the baseline aerofoil. Applicable to a wide range from applications from drones, UAVs, aircraft engines, wind turbines and fan blades.
