A system to detect bacteria and virus through their mass and mechanical rigidity

The system is based on a nanodetector developed by scientists at the Microelectronics Institute of Madrid (IMM-CSIC). It is more sensitive than current methods and will allow and earlier detection of pathogens.

Quick diagnosis through the skin and tears

A self-powered electrochemical sensor for detection of key metabolites such as lactate, glucose, and alcohol, among others, in physiological samples, has been developed. It can be implemented on flexible substrates. Biocompatible, it is very suitable for non-invasive medical applications in the form of skin-patches or contact lenses.

Fast test for pseudomona bacteria detection

An immunochemical method to identify infections caused by Pseudomonas aeruginosa bacterium has been developed. It is fast, has a high sensitivity and could easily be applied to different immunochemical analytical configurations of the so called Point-of-Care (PoC) devices.

Staphylococcus aureus fast detection test

CSIC and CIBER-BBN have developed an immunochemical method for diagnosis of infections produced by Staphylococcus aureus. The immunoassay is fast and efficient, with a low limit of detection and adaptable to point-of care devices.

Bioglass for implants and bone grafts

The CSIC, the University of Malaga and the CIBER laboratory have obtained bio-glass for medical uses in bone regeneration and tissue engineering. These materials, called Nitri-bioglasses, can be used as temporary scaffolds in bone implants or reconstructive surgery. They biodegrade quickly and enhance the adhesion and growth of new cells.
