Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya - UPC posted this:Reconfigurable beam reflectarray antenna for frequencies in the range of terahertz and millimeter waveThe reflectarray antenna consists of a flat array of phase-shifter cells (reflectarray) illuminated by a feeder, which produces an electronically reconfigurable collimated or shaped beam, where the cells (3b) consist of several stacked layers of conductive elements (4c, 4e, 4d, 4f) on a dielectric substrate (7c, 7d) alternated with layers of liquid crystal (5c, 5d) and a conductive plane (9). Applying bias voltages in the conducting elements, the dielectric constant of the liquid crystal varies producing a phase shift of the reflected field in each cell, allowing for a electronic beam scanning or reconfiguration. Including multiple layers of conductive elements and liquid crystal, improves the bandwidth and the performance of the beam scanning or reconfiguration. The antenna can be applied to observation satellites, communications and security systems.
Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya - UPC posted this:A new workflow, algorithmic approach and software tool to analyze LC/MS and NMR samples in metabolomicsA new algorithm is able to greatly increase the power of any statistical test based on Liquid Chromatography Mass Spectroscopy (LC/MS) and Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) based metabolomic data. This software tool is able to construct prediction models in an almost fully automatic fashion. Built models contain a critical pre-processing step that improves dramatically the results of standard prediction algorithms. Partners to further develop the system and/ or to establish commercial agreements along with technical cooperation are sought.

University of Granada (OTRI) posted this:Method for diagnosing Hereditary Hemorrhagic Telangiectasia (HHT)Hereditary Hemorrhagic Telangiectasia (HHT) is a rare and genetic disease in which a disorder in angiogenesis exists. 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.

Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas posted this:Potyvirus viral detection kitCSIC and the Universitat Politècnica de València have developed a method for the detection and quantification of all species of the viral genus Potyvirus present in plant samples. The different species of the genus Potyvirus cause losses of up to 90% of production in crops of high economic interest, such as potato, maize or sugar cane. So far, the only way to identify that the crop was being attacked by a virus of the genus Potyvirus was to make specific detections for each species of the genus. With this new system it is possible to determine if in the samples coming from a culture there is presence of one of the 148 known species of the genus Potyvirus or of some unknown variant of these species. Companies in the agro-food sector interested in incorporating this kit for viral detection are being sought. An offer for Patent Licensing

Universidad de Alcalá-OTRI posted this:SensoGraph: Fast and cheap method for the sensory food positioningThe training of a panel of tasters can be long and costly for the needs of the food industry. A research group from the University of Alcalá has developed a method that allows a real-time analysis, faster and visual, with comparable results. This method for sensory positioning is based on the opinions of a group of untrained tasters and / or consumers, processed by software that uses geometric techniques rather than statistics. The group seeks to reach commercial agreements with technical assistance with companies in the agrofood sector.
