  • Simulated microgravity system to synthesize high-quality 2D crystalline materials

    29 July 2021 257 hit(s) Press
    A team of researchers demonstrated that 2D porous crystalline molecular frameworks (MOFs) can be grown with excellent control over their morphology and homogeneity by using a custom-made microfluidic device. This approach recreates on Earth the microgravity environment of laboratories on the International Space Stations.
  • New Cover in Advanced Therapeutics on a new scalable technology for the preparation of novel nanopharmaceuticals for wound healing

    21 June 2021 357 hit(s) Press
    New front cover in “Advanced Therapeutics” for the article “Recombinant Human Epidermal Growth Factor/Quatsome Nanoconjugates: A Robust Topical Delivery System for Complex Wound Healing”.
  • A device monitoring heart failure from saliva co-developed by ICMAB and IMB-CNM researchers

    06 May 2021 1256 hit(s) Press
    The instrument, developed in the framework of the European project KardiaTool, contains a biosensor chip developed in the Clean Room of the IMB-CNM, and functionalized magnetic nanoparticles synthesized at ICMAB, key to detect the biomarkers found in saliva. It is a quick Point-of-Care saliva test that does not require specialized personnel.
