New granted patent

By | 2016, News | No Comments

It has been granted a patent which is being developed at Bionanomechanics Lab from IMM-CSIC (InES2553027_patente_biodeteccionstituto de Microelectrónica de Madrid) by the research group led by Dr. Javier Tamayo and Dr. Montse Calleja.

The invention relates to a System for biodetection applications, which comprises two basic elements, a substrate having a functionalised surface, and a nanoparticle, and which can strengthen the plasmonic effect of the nanoparticle. The invention also relates to a bio-sensor that includes said system, and to the method for detecting and quantifying a target analyte selected in a sample using said system. The invention further relates to a device that can detect the strengthened opto-plasmonic effect of the nanoparticles using the system according to the invention, or combine the detection of said opto-plasmonic effect with the analysis of the changes in the mechanical characteristics of the substrate.

First business trip to Japan

By | 2016, News | No Comments

In a couple of days our colleagues from Business Development Department will fly to Tokyo for the very first time. They will have the opportunity of meeting some scientists in University of Tokyo and Tohoku University, as well as visiting old friends in Tsukuba University. We are sure that Japan won’t disappoint them, probably will exceed their (already high) expectations.
