By a new ionophore incorporated into a polymeric membrane that allows screening creatinine real samples. The use of said ionophore in the polymer membrane solve the selectivity problem found in other methods.
UNIVERSIDAD DE BURGOS posted this:Device for detecting and monitoring lactate in sweatElectronic device capable of detecting lactic acid in sweat, in real time, through screen-printed electrodes. The device includes an enzymatic biosensor capable of measuring the specific activity of the enzyme lactate oxidase on lactic acid, substance generated during physical exercise and partly excreted through sweat.
UNIVERSIDAD DE BURGOS posted this:Solid sensory film for in situ detection and quantification of Iron, Aluminium and MercuryThe development of simple, fast and inexpensive colorimetric sensors for timeless and in-situ detection of trace amounts of iron, aluminium and mercury in aqueous media by non-specialized personnel has become a major challenge, mainly because the presence or absence of these compounds can lead to a number of problems, e.g., contamination issues. As a result of the above described requirements, a new low cost polymer material has been developed and patented for the rapid visual colorimetric detection and quantification of iron, aluminium and mercury. A precise quantification of the species can be done in minutes using a picture taken with the camera of a mobile phone, and a broad quantification can be visually achieved.
Universidad de Alcalá-OTRI posted this:Diagnosis of the Building Pathologies by qualified and quantified images.The research group "Image, Metrics and Architecture" from the University of Alcalá along with the startup Voar has developed the tool for the diagnosis of pathologies in the construction by the images processing. The images are captured with digital, thermal imagers, with the use of drones and robots to enter to areas with difficult access and from them, the processing that facilitates the diagnosis is carried out with a software. This tool is useful for conservation and maintenance companies of buildings, real estate corporations, insurance companies or certification to achieve collaboration and commercial agreements with technical assistance.
UNIVERSIDAD DE BURGOS posted this:New low cost colorimetric sensors, both solid and in aqueous solution, for the naked eye detection in situ and quantification of nitro-explosives (TNT)It is known the high toxicity of nitro-explosives, namely TNT, which are easily absorbed by the skin and the intestinal tract. It is also known the presence of this compound in contaminated civil areas arisen from older military installations, or even from terrorist attacks. This causes both health and environmental problems. In order to meet this need we have developed new colorimetric, simple, rapid and cheap colorimetric sensor for the in situ detection of trace amounts of TNT by non-specialized personnel and by conventional techniques sensors (replacing the commonly known IMS, GC, HPLC).
UNIVERSIDAD DE ALICANTE posted this:Solid-state laser with COPV as active compoundThe research group “Physics of condensed matter” of the University of Alicante has developed a new solid state laser (OSL) where the active compound comprises carbon-bridged oligo(p-phenylenevinylene) (COPV). The main advantages of this technology are photostability, miscibility, processable in thin layers and effective for laser generation at different wavelengths. It can be used in the following industrial sectors: Spectroscopy, biosensors, chemical sensors and optical communications. The research group is looking for companies interested in acquiring this invention or adapting it to their requirements.
UNIVERSIDAD DE ALICANTE posted this:Multicapillary nebulizer for simultaneous nebulization of two or more liquids A Spanish university research group has developed a new pneumatic multicapillary nebulizer which allows the simultaneous nebulization of two or more liquids, miscible or immiscible between them. 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.
Centre Technology Transfer CITTRU posted this:Method of isolation and purification of xanthophylls from diatom cultureXanthophylls, with their antioxidant, anticancer, anti-inflammatory and neuroprotective properties, found important applications in food and nutrition, cosmetic and environmental industries, as well as pharmacy and medicine. Diadinoxanthin (Ddx) and diatoxanthin (Dtx) are two pigments that belong to xanthophylls family. The availability of Ddx and Dtx on the market is low and up to date limited as they are sold exclusively in small quantities at extremely high prices to be used as HPLC calibration standards. The solution of the above mentioned problems is the 5-step method for the isolation and purification of Ddx and Dtx developed at the Jagiellonian University..
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.
