  • High Voltage Condition Monitoring

    Transformers play a key role in the transmission and distribution network, getting power from source to end-user, so any fault is critical and needs to be identified before any damage to the transformer or surrounding components leads to power black-out or catastrophic failure.

  • 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 suscepti...

  • 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...

  • 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 ...

  • Watertight Gate Mechanism

    The technology relates to a method of ensuring that traditional mitre lockgates can be engineered to ensure they can resist a reverse head of water, an increasing environmental problem.

  • Electric Motor Monitoring System

    The technology relates to the field of monitoring commutator electric motors. Specifically, this relates to detecting high-frequency RF arcing events through a non-contact small screened loop antenna system, using the measured RF signals to provide a means for monitoring, recording and diagnosing a ...

  • TEMo: Gene Signatures for Breast Cancer Diagnosis

    The presence of cancer causes changes to the immune system. A 13-gene signature characteristic of the presence of breast cancer has been identified from blood samples, and a diagnostic to identify this signature as a means of detecting breast cancer more effectively than existing methods has been de...

  • Radio Frequency Ablation (RFA)

    Researchers at the University of Dundee have developed a novel “intelligent” RFA device for destroying solid tumours in situ. This new concept in RFA treatment overcomes the limitations of current technology by providing a safe, versatile and highly effective method for complete tumour ablation ther...

  • Strategy for Enhancing the Performance of Vaccines

    Researchers at the University of Dundee have designed and synthesised a novel, multifunctional protease inhibitor that has the potential to significantly enhance the performance of vaccines through proteolytic modulation.

    Expires: Created:
  • 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 ...
