Fuel cell on paper

Scientists at the Instituto de Microelectrónica de Barcelona (IMB- CNM) have developed a microfluidic fuel cell on paper, which in the future could replace the button-batteries in diagnostic kits.

Lab-on-a-chip. The future is here

Measuring up to 16 biological parameters with a chip seized only 3 centimetres: is the result of a research developed by scientists at the Centro d’Investigación en Nanociencia y Nanotecnología (CIN2). This new photonic biosensor has been patented in the US and Europe.

New method makes corneal topographic maps in less than a second

Scientists at CSIC have developed a method that enables obtaining a corneal topographic map in less than a second. Compared to current technologies, the new technology is faster and has higher resolution and exactitude. Besides ophthalmology, it can be used in other sectors, like microelectronics or biomedicine. The method can measure surface's profiles at shorter distances than current technologies, without touching the object, which prevents any possible harm. It can get the measures even if the object is within a liquid.

Improved nanoparticles for diagnosis and traceability uses

Scientists at the CSIC and at the Universidad de Vigo have developed nanoparticles able to identify almost any substance or molecule, such as drugs, pathogens, pollutants or cells. The particles could be also used as markers to track objects or molecules, to ‘follow’ and detect them through different detection techniques.

Seeing and cutting with the sound. A 3D acoustic lens with medical applications

A new technology to build tridimensional acoustic lenses that makes possible to obtain 3D images through ultrasounds hs been developed. It can be applied to medical imaging, or as non-destructive way of seeing the inside of non transparent objects, such as bridges, ships structures o plain wings. Also, it can be used to develop a non-invasive scalpel.
