RAMOT at Tel Aviv University Ltd. posted this:Enhancement of Durability, Sensitivity and Selectivity of Environmental Sensors & BioSensors by Peptide NanotubesA Peptide NanoForest, is a dense array of self assembling organic nanotubes, capable of enhancing sensitivity and selectivity parameters of amperometric electrode high-performance sensors. The patented Diphenylalanine (FF) aromatic dipeptide nanotubes are formed under mild conditions from inexpensive building blocks. These bioinspired materials have a unique mechanical strength. They have a high Young’s modulus of about 20–30 GPa. In addition, the inherent biocompatibility of the structures along with the options of their chemical and biological modifications, extraordinary thermal stability, and organic solvent stability, lead to a novel class of nanostructures for sensing applications. The vertical arrangement of the peptide nanotubes enable the deposition of a larger number of nanotubes on the same surface, resulting in a remarkable surface area increase. FF peptide-nanotube-based sensors are benchmarked to CNT-based sensor, and clearly demonstrate the enhancement effect. Project ID : 3-2011-149

The method provides quantification of pore sizes, pore size distribution and measure on pore eccentricities even for heterogeneous samples in the presence of free water or other liquids. Most diffusion MR methods use single pulsed-field-gradient (PFG) MR sequences; however such sequences are only beneficial for measurement of uniform, highly ordered media. We use the angular bipolar double-pulsed-field gradient (bp-d-PFG) to measure the poly dispersed sizes and shapes of pores of sedimentary rock samples with inter connections and three-dimensional organization. No a priori knowledge on the sizes or distribution is required. Project ID : 6-2012-372
RAMOT at Tel Aviv University Ltd. posted this:Iron oxide nanoparticles (IOP) for the treatment of acute myocardial infarction (AMI) and other inflammatory conditionsA novel approach for the treatment of AMI has been developed using IOPs. IOPs, when injected into the infarcted myocardium, lead to improved heart function after MI. IOPs activate anti-inflammatory macrophages and thus promote tissue healing and repair and prevent myocardial remodeling and dysfunction. Potential Applications IOPs can be used to treat AMI and other inflammatory conditions associated with pro-inflammatory activated macrophages and to promote tissue healing and repair. Advantages ? IOPs are nontoxic ? IOPs are FDA approved for use in humans for MRI imaging Stage In vivo studies in mouse and rat models of MI and heart failure Project ID : 10-2011-247

Brunel University London posted this:PRISM: Plastic packaging Recycling using Intelligent Separation technologies for MaterialsPRISM is a process for rapidly automatically sorting packaging based on intelligent labels with invisible markers. Codes are written using luminescent materials, typically inorganic phosphors. At the recycling facility the articles are subject to excitation radiation of a specific wavelength and a few seconds/milliseconds later are subject to infra‑red detection as currently. This 2‑step process can identify articles according to the codes and sort them as specified. The benefits include increased recycling rates, the ability to sort articles by their end use (food, non-food) and composition increasing the value of such plastic. Incorporation into existing recycling facilities is easy and cost‑effective with a limited need for capital investment.

Lab results show that when coated with this molecule, titanium surfaces showed increased signs of bio-compatibility, which is backed up by published scientific research. The technology has the potential of improving osteosynthesis and orthopedic implants, as well as many other types of surgical implants. The BBZ is looking for licensing, joint R&D, or ownership opportunities regarding this technology.
