RNA Solution for Protein Solubility

Antibodies and other proteins are a multi-billion-dollar medicinal market. However, proteins often have to be administered at high concentrations, which is difficult because proteins tend to aggregate or clump together under these conditions. Protein aggregates limit therapy efficacy and can be a health risk. This technology uses a novel RNA formulation approach to dissolve proteins at high concentration and prevent

Irreversible Organic Electrochromic Materials

Electrochromic materials change colour with an electric current and have many applications as low energy visual indicators (e.g. displays, signage, e-readers). Currently, these materials are mainly reversible. However, for security related applications (e.g. smart, anti-tampering labels), irreversible materials would be highly desirable. This innovation presents high-performing, green, manufacturing-compatible, irreversible organic electrochromic formulations.

Office-ready Metal Printer

3D printing has revolutionized manufacturing. Printing metals, however, is not a simple as printing plastics. Metal printing requires the use of powder which is hazardous and requires special equipment to handle. Instead of powder, this technology uses a wire-feedstock, made possible through improved welding technology that can match the precision of powder-based printers.

Tool Holder for Collaborative Robot

Collaborative robots (Cobots) are being used more and more frequently in electronics manufacturing. These robots are, however, designed to perform one specific task at a time, with task-switching only possible by changing the robot’s manipulator manually. This tool holder enables a Cobot to pick up and use tools without assistance, enabling multiple tasks to be performed via an automated setup.

3D monitoring for smart textiles

Smart textiles have great potential in the fields of sport science and medicine, and even in the entertainment industry (e.g. motion-capture technology). This technology enhances that potential, by creating a 3D digital twin of a smart textile, enabling measurement of deformation and movement of the smart textile as it is worn.

Food Waste Extract for Bacterial Growth

Bacterial cellulose has many uses, for example in making medical dressings, as food industry ingredients (thickening, flavour, colour), in food packaging and sustainable textiles. However, its utility is limited by the cost, of which a large proportion comes from growing the bacteria that produce the cellulose. This technology is an extract derived from food waste that replaces expensive conventional bacterial

Smart Continuous Construction Site Monitoring

Tracking construction progress is a vital task. When performed manually, it is inefficient, and the risk for mistakes and delays in the project increases. This technology automates construction site monitoring with smart 3D-scanning helmets and software that, together, generate a 3D model that can be continuously compared with the original design.

Implantable Fiber-Optic Hearing Aid Microphone

Whilst conventional hearing aids greatly improve the lives of people with hearing difficulties, they cause problems by being worn externally – for example they can cause stigma and affect daily activities such as bathing. This technology is an implantable hearing aid microphone, which, when combined with a cochlear implant, would be a completely internal hearing aid.

Bio Based Antimicrobial Microparticles

With the growing awareness of antimicrobial resistance, new antimicrobial materials have gained importance in many applications. This group of researchers have developed microparticles with long lasting antimicrobial properties based on cellulose, a fibre abundantly found in plants. The product is an alternative to nano-biocides, such as metal and other engineered nanomaterials, which are limited by their toxicity.
