Oxidative stress is thought to be involved in the development of many diseases and pathological conditions such as cancer, neurodegenerative diseases, cardiovascular diseases and aging. Quercetin is an antioxidant that belongs to a group of plant pigments called flavonoids. Flavonoids give many fruits, flowers, and vegetables their colors. Quercetin scavenges particles, known as free radicals, in the body which damage cell membranes, tamper with DNA, and even cause cell death. Antioxidants can ...

Contrary to conventional food packaging that is inert to the food; active food packaging has the ability to act against the contaminants and to remove them. Active and multifunctional packaging materials are facing increasing demand because of the changing trend of the customer needs such as safety and long shelf life of the food material without however interfering with processed materials, preservatives and additives. In order to have safe active food packaging it is crucial to choose active ...

Our CTC technique offers a personalised early cancer detection for patients, tracking cancer metastasis, cancer relapse, and giving prognostic information. The faster doctors can give a solid diagnosis, the more quickly they can save lives. Yet the blood-based or liquid biopsy detection of cancer has always been challenging due to the heterogeneity and small size of CTCs. Having an urgent clinical demand for a more efficient cancer-detecting method, our company has strategically designed a nove...

Tarnishing is a long-established challenge. Oxidation and corrosion cause discolouration of many metal surfaces, which decrease the shelf-life of products. The development of a new coating technology called "Pulsed Chemical Vapour Deposition (PCVD)" enables formation of uniform oxide thin films on articles such as watches, jewellery and coins of any shape and orientation. It provides an ultrathin and totally conformal anti-oxidation coating, which is also fully transparent. As compared to other ...

Synthetic pesticides used in conventional agriculture and especially greenhouses have significant impact on public health and environmental safety due to their vast amount of uncontrolled and indiscriminate use. They accumulate on food products, causing acute or long-term chronic symptoms in consumers. Therefore, the excessive use of pesticides has been a critical public health issue in the past decades.  These problems show that there is a need to find new ways that can help to reduce the use ...

This technology relates to a method to create high flux for membrane distillation (MD) using a salt rejection ultrahigh molecular weight polyethylene (UHMWPE) membrane. This UHMWPE membrane has a homogeneous porous and multi-layered structure and shows extremely high flux even at low temperatures and robust mechanical strength. MD can produce freshwater with a salt rejection rate higher than 99% (compared with less than 90% for other technologies), and with few effects from the concentration of ...

Cebiotex is a Barcelona‐based biotech company focused on developing biomedical nanofibers to deliver therapies locally. Our first medical need targeted is in the field of oncology: to reduce local recurrence and spreading of tumour cells, by improving local control of cancer after surgery.  For cancer patients, an optimal local control reduces local recurrence after surgery. Moreover, clinical epidemiological evidence associates local control and improved survival rates.  However, a complete ...

Several cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) biomarkers have been recognized and established for AD diagnosis with a high diagnostic accuracy of over 85%. However, the collection of CSF is invasive and causes discomfort and side effects to the patients. On the other hand, the collection of blood, urine and saliva is relatively simple and non-invasive. This detection assay is an immunocomplex based approach with magnetic nanoprobe for sensitive detection of the target biomarkers. Once the target biomarker ...

The technology described herein is related to the development of a concentrated solar power apparatus enabled by fresnel lens tunnel. The technology is able to convert solar energy captured by the fresnel lens tunnel into thermal energy to be stored in the form of heat using a thermal storage material. The heat stored in the thermal storage material can be used for a wide range of applications by coupling with a heat exchanger. The technology provider is seeking for partners to commercialise thi...
