Device to cut biological tissues in three-dimensions

Scientists at the CSIC and at the Polytechnic University of Valencia have developed a system that enables cutting biological tissues in curved forms. The system is composed of a software and an accessory for being attached to the standard tool. The device offers a totally new approximation to the structural and functional studies of biological tissues.


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.


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.


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.
