Departament d’Enginyeria Química and Barcelona Research Center for Multiscale Science and Engineering from Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC) in collaboration with Laboratoire de Chimie Physique des Biomolecules (University of Namur, Belgium) today announced the publication of the results for the thermomechanical response of a representative porin used for the fabrication of smart biomimetic nanomembranes. These samples have been characterized using microcantilever technology and SCALA-CAL platform chosen for measuring and comparing with standard proteins. The work was co-authored by UPC professor Carlos Alemán along with Maximilien Lopes-Rodrigues, Anna Puiggalí-Jou, Didac Martí-Balleste and Luis J. del Valle from UPC, in collaboration with Catherine Michaux and Eric A. Perpète, both of University of Namur (Belgium).

We are very pleased to announce the sale of our first SCALA equipment in China. After some years of hard work and fantastic collaboration with our Beijing-based Sales Agent “GermanTech“, a equipment was installed in Changchun Institute of Applied Chemistry. For Mecwins, this is a starting point of introducing our cutting edge technology in the Chinese market, increasing the visibility of our brand and products.
Researchers from Changchun Institute of Applied Chemistry purchases the last version of our SCALA µini, the ideal instrument for single-chip characterization.

A new paper of our team members and scientists from UAM, appeared recently:
C. Rodriguez, O. Ahumada, V. Cebrian, V. Torres Costa and M. Manso Silvan, “Biofunctional porous silicon micropatterns engineered through visible light activated epoxy capping and selective plasma etching“, Vacuum 150 (2018) 232-238.
The authours provides results which confirm the effectiveness of GPTMS capped PSi as adsorptive layer for immunosensing.
Mecwins today announced that a new method of use patent for characterization of nano- and micromechanical strcutures has been granted by the United States Patent Office.
The patent, entitled Method and system for characterization of nano- and micromechanical structures (patent number 9,829,427), provides a method and system in optical microscopy based on the deflection of micro- and nanomechanical structures, upon impact of a laser beam thereon, which simultaneously and automatically provides a spatial map of the static deflection and of the form of various vibration modes, with vertical resolution in the subangstrom range. The invention comprises at least one mechanical structure, an incident laser beam sweeping the surface of the structure, an optometric detector for capturing the laser beam, and frequency excitation means that generate at least two sinusoidal signals at different frequencies in the mechanical structure.
