  • Engineered Macrophages to Improve in vitro Red Blood Cell Maturation

    Activation of a key transcription factor in stem cell-derived macrophages improves enucleation of surrounding red blood cells in vitro

  • Automatic Detection of Video and Film Copies Distributed on the Internet

    A novel digital fingerprinting technique which can automatically detect copyright infringing video files on peer-to-peer networks via the Internet and other media. This technique relies only on information already present within the video. The identification of the video is robust and able to withst...

  • Fluorinase - an enzymatic process for the generation of organo-fluorine compounds

    Organo-fluorine compounds are of great importance in the pharmaceutical, fine chemical and agrochemical industries. For example, Prozac and 5-Fluorouracil are organo-fluorine compounds.

  • Metathesis of Cardanol

    Processing cashew nuts produces 300,000 tonnes of waste by-products p.a.; 85% of this waste is made up of Cardanol. Metathesis of cardanol with ethane (ethenolysis) converts cardanol it into 1-octene a major plasticiser for polyethylene, and into 3-nonylphenol, to replace 4-nonylphenol in detergent ...

  • Distributed Feedback Membrane Lasers for Counterfeit Protection and Authentication

    Extremely flexible, ultrathin and ultralow weight membrane lasers could be widely applied as security features on valued documents, banknotes and pharmaceuticals, and also a wide range of other high value branded products (spirits, perfumes).

  • Robust Sharpe Ratio

    When markets face south, the Sharpe ratio can lead to better results for assets with lower return and higher risk. This feature is at best dangerous and at worst catastrophic. It also applied to any equivalent return to risk ratio. We are proud to present our developed Robust Sharpe Ratio.

    Expires: Created:
  • High throughput imaging of cellular forces

    Our novel micro-interferometer based force sensors provide direct, robust and non-destructive imaging of forces associated with various types of mechanical cell-substrate interaction. The new method requires no zero-force reference image, enables continuous, measurement of multiple cells on one subs...

    Expires: Created:
  • Keyword-based pronunciation lexicons for speech synthesis

    This high-quality keyword-based pronunciation lexicon (Combilex) is easily adaptable for use in text-to-speech synthesis (voice-building or run-time synthesis) and in speech recognition systems. (Click-thru licence available)

    Expires: Created:
  • Small-holder agriculture mitigation benefit assessment tool

    The Small-Holder Agriculture Mitigation Benefit Assessment (SHAMBA) tool provides a simple, robust and easy to use method for estimating greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions or removals resulting from a change in land management practices.

    Expires: Created:
  • Biocatalysis of a novel fluorinated sugar [18-F]-FDR for PET imaging

    Combining the sequential use of 2 enzymes – fluorinase and nucleoside hydrolase – we have successfully produced a new radiotracer with potential as an imaging biomarker for PET scans. The fluorinase enzyme combines fluorine with S-adenosyl-L-methionine (SAM) to generate 5'-fluro-5'-deoxy...
