Mecwins IVD4Sepsis project has been selected for publication in the ‘Results in Brief’ section of the European Commission’s CORDIS website.

European Commission’s CORDIS website selects 120 projects a month based on domain, timing and quality of results. Of these projects, 80 articles a month are published on a first come-first served basis.

The article: “Novel ultrasensitive detection device for early Sepsis diagnosis” has been published on the CORDIS website in six languages. Have a peek!

Mecwins in collaboration with Bionanomechanics Lab from IMN-CSIC (Instituto de Micro y Nanotecnología de Madrid), Advanced Photonic and Biofunctional Materials Group from UAM (Universidad Autónoma de Madrid), and Chemical Engineering Department from UPC (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya Barcelonatech) will carry out a project to develop a technology for the ultrasensitive detection of infectious markers in blood donations.

The project “Spectrasens – A new hyperspectral platform for the simultaneous and ultrasensitive detection of infectious disease markers in blood donations”, will get more than 1M€ in financial aid.

Spectrasens is financed by:
/FEDER/Ministerio de Ciencia, Innovación y Universidades–Agencia Estatal de Investigación/_Proyecto RTC-2017-6311-1-1/ under the RETOS-COLABORACION program for the period 2018-2020.


Prof. Tamayo honored with the RSEF prize for Physics, Innovation & Technology

IMG_20181120_155425During the last 4 days from 20th to 23th of November, Mecwins team has been involved in a new installation at Chinese Academy of Inspection Quarantine (CAIQ). Prof. Lei from CAIQ has purchased one SCALA instrument to make advances in her biosensing research with microcantilevers. We would like to thank to Tao Wang ang Guo Guanghui (from GermanTech, our exclusive sales representative) for their valuable support and also our grateful to Prof. Lei for her kindness and hospitality during our stay.


As usual, it was a pleasure travelling to Beijing and we are looking forward to coming back again very soon.
