  • Activity based probe for Parkinson’s and other diseases

    Researchers at the University of Dundee have developed new activity based probes to profile enzyme activity linked to Parkinson’s and other diseases. Their discovery could provide novel biomarkers and new therapeutic targets, transforming diagnosis and treatment of disease.

  • New Parkinson’s disease biomarkers

    Researchers at the University of Dundee have identified fundamental mechanisms driving neuronal loss and dysfunction in Parkinson’s disease. Their investigations have uncovered novel biomarkers for the disease which could help with early diagnosis or in the assessment of novel treatment intervention...

  • Biomarker assay to enable safe corticosteroid withdrawal

    Using hypothesis-free metabolomics screening, a list of seven biomarkers has been identified that, when combined, are highly sensitive in predicting corticosteroid dose and, thus, the risk of adrenal insufficiency on corticosteroid withdrawal. Quantitative assays for these metabolites will create a ...

    Expires: Created:
  • In vitro bacterial infection diagnostic test

    Researchers at the University of Dundee have developed a sensitive, reproducible in vitro test to diagnose and measure the severity of chronic infections in patients.

    Expires: Created:
  • Catanostics - Non-Invasive Early Stage Cataract Diagnosis & Severity Quantification tool

    Catanostics (Cataract Diagnostics) offers an alternative to the slit lamp currently used for cataract diagnosis before referring a patient for cataract surgery. Our non-invasive fluorescence scan offers "better diagnosis" through non-subjective analysis of data on cataract symptoms & severity lea...

    Expires: Created:
  • The eFinger - non-subjective Prostate Examination & Prostate Cancer Indication Tool

    Prostate Cancer, caught early enough, is increasingly treatable. Digital rectal examination of the Prostate is often the first stage of prostate cancer screening but is somewhat subjective. eFinger offers an alternative - a numerical non-subjective indication based on prostate tissue properties to p...

    Expires: Created:
  • Lab in a Pill

    Scientists at the University of Glasgow have pioneered a new sensor technology, Lab-in-a-Pill, that could have major impact on the cost and effectiveness of bowel cancer treatment.

    Expires: Created:
  • Visual field testing device for improved patient experience

    Researchers at the University of Edinburgh have developed a visual field testing device that uses a strategy that is more natural for the patient than current gold standard tests resulting in an improved patient experience.

    Expires: Created:
  • Rapid detection of antimicrobial resistance (AMR) & antibiotic sensitivity testing (AST)

    Antibiotics are often prescribed inappropriately leading to (1) patients remaining infected and failing to recover from bacterial infection, and (2) the spread of bacterial antibiotic resistance. Our laboratory prototype devices can provide accurate detection and quantification of bacterial suscep...

    Expires: Created:
  • Rapid, sensitive counting of viable bacteria: the Molecular Bacterial Load Assay (MBLA)

    The Molecular Bacterial Load Assay (MBLA) provides a rapid and sensitive way to detect viable bacteria. MBLA opens up new applications in the diagnosis and treatment monitoring of a range of chronic bacterial infections, representing an opportunity to create a completely new platform of bacterial di...
