IMDEA Water Institute posted this:Geomatics laboratory for water resources managementIMDEA Water works on the methodological development and application of different spatial tools to support water resources management, including environmental mapping, remote sensing, the design and implementation of spatial databases and geoportals, applications for provisioning networks, and hydrological and hydrogeological modelling. New spatial information sources (LIDAR, GPS, digital terrain models, high-resolution imaging or drones) enable us to create new, high-resolution thematic mappings. Remote sensing techniques help derive biophysical vegetation variables (vegetation indices, water stress, agricultural output, crop evapotranspiration, etc.), geological mapping, soil usage, etc. Spatial databases record and order this information, forming a Hydrological Information System able to analyse the topological and quantitative relationships of different variables, the development of advanced 3D mapping and its implementation in web geoportals. Hydrogeological modelling by means of individual numerical models and/or coupled with hydrogeochemical models allows us to assess water resources in terms of their quantity and quality, and can be the basis for decision-making on the issue of water resources, both for surface water and groundwater bodies. Combining the extraction of data contained in old mappings and geo-positioning techniques with GPS allows the identification of hydraulic heritage elements for the development of decision-making support strategies.
IMDEA Water Institute posted this:Biology and microbiology laboratoryIn our Biology and Microbiology laboratory we provide surface and groundwater analysis services in order to: • Support water quality surveillance initiatives through standardised national and international methods, in accordance with the Water Framework Directive (WFD 2000/60/EC) and Groundwater Directive (GWD2006/118/EC). • Monitor cyanobacteria blooms and their toxins in surface water and develop technological solutions for the elimination of cyanotoxins in water treatment.
IMDEA Water Institute posted this:Laboratory techniques for contaminant transport assessmentLaboratory techniques: Experimental analysis of processes affecting transport of contaminants through the vadose zone and the aquifer are necessary to interpret field data, especially when the recognition at field level is hampered by the complexity of the environmental system. Batch and column experiments, specifically designed to simulate field conditions as reliably as possible, provide valuable information on interaction between contaminants and vadose zone and/or aquifer materials. These laboratory techniques are also useful to assess the response in terms of contaminant removal during water reuse and water treatment activities. Experimental study should always be coupled with numerical modelling to quantify contaminant transport parameters, with the aim of finding the nexus between field and laboratory research.
IMDEA Water Institute posted this:Water and soil laboratory with accreditation ISO 17025 ENIMDEA Water labs joined the Laboratory and Infrastructure Network of the Community of Madrid in 2009, with reference number 267. The labs perform several physico-chemical, microbiological and chromatographic analyses associated with quality control of water bodies and soils. The IMDEA laboratories are currently engaged in the application process for formal acknowledgement of technical competence as a laboratory for water analysis by ENAC (National Accreditation Entity) accreditation, to ensure confidence in test results: Accreditation ISO 17025 EN. For the determination of the following parameters: pH, conductivity, suspended solids, DQO, DBO5, total phosphorus and TKN (Total Kjeldahl Nitrogen).
Institute of Chemical Research of Catalonia posted this:Crysforma: services in pharmaceutical solid state developmentCrysforma provides complete scientific support for the discovery, analysis and scale-up of polymorphs, hydrates, amorphous phases, salts and co-crystals of active pharmaceutical ingredients or intermediates. Crysforma has developed its own crystallization screening methodology based on the combination of several crystallization procedures. We use high-throughput crystallization systems controlled by highly skilled scientists to maximize the information drawn from each experiment. Our projects are always carried out in close collaboration with the client, adapted to the customer's needs and under strict confidentiality conditions.
Institute of Chemical Research of Catalonia posted this:ERTFlow: flow reaction technologies and process intensificationERTFLOW is a technology development unit from the Institute of Chemical Research of Catalonia (ICIQ), generated by the know-how produced by the research group of Prof. Miquel Pericàs, to develop and implement technical solutions in process intensification. Our goal is to develop propietary technologies related to catalysis and flow chemistry and offering products and services to the fine chemical, pharmaceutical and biotechnological industries for the production of new products with high added value and guide them in the paradigm change from batch to flow.

CITCEA-UPC posted this:Technology transfer in renewable energies, power electronics, energy control, electrical vehicles...CITCEA-UPC is a technology transfer center which was created in 2001 within the UPC (Universitat PolitÃ¨cnica de Catalunya, BarcelonaTech), and it is specialized in responding to electrical and electronic technological challenges. The aim of the center is to receive these challenges and solve them by creating a functional prototype that will serve the companies to eventually develop a new commercial product or to solve a new technological problem created by the growth and evolution of the society.
Barcelona Skin Genomic posted this:Recommendation of optimal combinations of natural active compounds to treat disease using a databaseBarcelona Skin Genomic (BSG) is developing a database that compiles information about the effects of different natural active compounds or plant extracts (more than 2500) on gene expression, on the levels of expression of interleukins and other molecules (more than 3400) and on treatment of different diseases (677). This database collects information from more than 5000 scientific articles, integrated by biologists and experts in life sciences and is updated on a monthly basis.
