Universidad de Alcalá-OTRI posted this:Method of diagnosis of non-invasive renal failure and prior to symptoms and functional disordersThe Renal Nephropathy research group at the University of Alcalá presents a method of diagnosis of Renal Insufficiency (RI), in all varieties of the disease, that determines the amount of protein related to parathyroid hormone (PTHrP) present in a sample of urine, comparing said amount with at least one reference value and diagnosing RI from said comparison. The research group seeks companies from the diagnostic medicine, biomedicine or pharmacy sector to establish licensing agreements, collaboration agreements or commercial agreements with technical assistance.
Universidad de Alcalá-OTRI posted this:Device for taking pictures of the treetopsResearchers at the University of Alcalá present a novel device that allows non-destructive sampling of treetops from the ground to quantify the damage caused by biotic agents (pests) and abiotic (storms, hail, torrential rains) or to control production of fruits, without the need for artificial means of elevating the operator, reducing the risk to the observer and to the health of the tree itself. The research group seeks to achieve commercial or licensing agreements with companies in the forestry sector (wood, cork, ...), agriculture sector or agricultural insurers.
Fundació URV posted this:Improving the efficacy of autologous stem cell transplantation from adipose tissue in patients with Crohn's diseaseThe invention relates to a method for obtaining stem cells with immunomodulatory properties derived from adipose tissue. The invention presents relevant applications in order to cure or improve Crohn's disease (EC) and the resulting complications such as perianal fistulas using cellular therapy.
Universitat de Lleida posted this:Bio-preservant solution to control foodborne pathogens in fresh-cut fruitOur technology is based on a microorganism with demonstrated bio-preservative activity. The strain CPA-7 of Pseudomonas graminis, isolated from fruit, is capable of inhibiting the growth of foodborne human pathogens such as Salmonella, Listeria monocytogenes and Escherichia coli O157:H7 in fresh-cut fruit. The University of Lleida seeks an industrial partner willing to adopt a new technology for biological control of foodborne pathogenic bacteria in fresh-cut fruit. The type of partner sought is for the regulatory development and commercialization of the protected technology under a license agreement.
Cracow University of Technology posted this:Sintering technique for both high density and high precision of steel-based sintersThe invention relates to the special additions that may be introduced to virtually any powder mixture based on steel aimed for sintering process. Specifically, the additions result in increased density (mainly of 0.5-0.7 g/cm3) of a final sinter accompanied with both high dimensional precision and increased corrosion resistance. Also, the invention decreases the sintering time down to 30 minutes. Application of this technology do not require modification of machine park and may easily utilized by anyone already sintering steel components.
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.

K-Tech R & D Corporation posted this:The World's 1st and Only Large Contractible Shipping ContainersThe company's accordion fold and band technologies enable a 55 gallon drum to contract to 15 gallons, which saves up to 70% on return empty shipping fees. Technology applies to any size containers, from 1 gallon to ultra-large shipping containers and to viscous, semi-viscous and grain-type materials. No one else has this technology.
Syncoda Technologies posted this:US9226722 (B2) - Medical Imaging System and Method with Separate Primary and Scattered ComponentsA computed tomography (CT) or ultra sound imaging system and method are configured to construct images of an object. The imaging system includes: a radiation or ultrasound source including a collimating or a blocking device configured to generate both a narrow beam and a wide beam; a detector configured to detect radiation or ultrasound wave from the radiation or ultrasound wave from the radiation or ultrasound source; and at least one processing circuit configured to: determine a scatter-to-primary ratio (SPR) of the wide beam based on the narrow beam; determine a primary component of the wide beam based on the SPR to thereby separate the primary component from a scattered component of the wide beam; and construct an image of an object inside a patient using the primary component to thereby improve a contrast of the object.
Syncoda Technologies posted this:US8512301 (B2) - Canned vacuumAn apparatus includes a vacuum container for maintaining a built-in vacuum pressure, and a vacuum device for connecting the vacuum container with a surface. A method to treat patients using a disposable vacuum source is also provided, including applying the disposable vacuum apparatus to the patient's skin, equalizing the pressure in the vacuum apparatus and the pressure on the skin to apply a vacuum suction force, and releasing the vacuum suction force by equalizing the pressure on the skin with the ambient atmospheric pressure.
Syncoda Technologies posted this:US9339595 (B2) - DISPOSABLE VACUUM SOURCE AND MEDICAL APPLICATIONS THEREOFAn apparatus including: a vacuum container configured to provide and substantially maintain a built-in vacuum pressure; a contact member configured to contact and substantially enclose a surface area; a vacuum device configured to couple the built-in vacuum pressure to the surface area thereby applying a suction force over the surface area; and a conduit coupled to the vacuum container; wherein the vacuum container is also configured to retain a substance collected from adjacent the surface area, wherein the conduit is configured to direct the substance to the vacuum container, and to maintain substantially the same level of vacuum pressure as the vacuum container, wherein the vacuum container comprises a collapsible container, and wherein the collapsible container comprises a spring member configured to maintain a tension in a wall of the vacuum container.
