  • 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...

  • App for accurate detection and monitoring of delirium

    Delirium is an acute and severe deterioration in mental function, which affects attention and cognition and poses a significant health problem for older patients in hospital. DelApp is a novel app based cognitive test, which can objectively detect delirium in patients.

    Expires: Created:
  • SNP-based assay for analysis of MRSA

    This assay is a rapid and reproducible approach for epidemiological analysis of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) clinical isolates. The assay identifies different strains on EMRSA-15, which is a major cause of hospital acquired MRSA infections in the UK and in other parts of the wo...

    Expires: Created:
  • Paget's disease genetic markers

    These genetic markers have an identified association with the individual prediction of susceptibility and severity of Paget's disease of the bone.

    Expires: Created:
  • FluPep - Peptide-based therapy of influenza virus infection

    This anti-influenza therapy offers potential as anti-viral treatment as well as prevention against all major flu strains, including influenza A infection.

    Expires: Created:
  • High accuracy, low blood volume microarray-based test for bacterial sepsis

    A host-directed diagnostic methodology, which uses only 30 μL of whole blood, and enables rapid and accurate detection of sepsis in neonates and other subjects. The test removes false negative results associated with current gold standard microbiological methods.

    Expires: Created:
  • Polymers for binding or repelling bacteria

    This range of novel synthetic polymers control bacterial attachment, resulting in specific sequestration or repulsion of bacteria such as Salmonella and E. coli.

    Expires: Created:
  • Biopolymer coatings for enhanced endothelialisation of intra-vascular devices

    These fully synthetic biocompatible polymers support effective human endothelial cell growth and endothelialisation, whilst minimising platelet attachment. The polymer materials can be applied as a thin coating to intra‐vascular devices and have the potential to minimise problems associated with vas...

    Expires: Created:
  • New prodrug strategy for targeted chemotherapies

    This new approach converts chemotherapy agents into prodrugs, significantly reducing systemic toxicity, and enabling local activation only at tumour sites where a specific catalyst, palladium, has been implanted.

    Expires: Created:
  • Accurate diagnostic test for Parkinson’s disease

    This sensitive, rapid and highly accurate assay offers a less invasive mechanism for initial diagnosis of Parkinson’s disease. This would facilitate early intervention and implementation of an appropriate care package.
