  • 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

    Expires: Created:
  • 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.

    Expires: Created:
  • 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).

    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:
  • 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...

    Expires: Created:
  • Calibration Device and method for Microcantilever Sensors

    Our technology provide the solution to enable the accurate calibration of microcantilever sensors used in Atomic force Microscopy (AFM), microfluidic applications, microelectromechanical systems (MEMS)and lab-on-a-chip technolgies.

    Expires: Created:
  • Novel target for Sickle Cell Disease & other haemolytic anaemias

    A novel therapeutic target for sickle cell disease and other haemolytic anaemias

    Expires: Created:
  • A potential therapeutic approach to Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA)

    The neurodegenerative inherited disease Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA) is the leading genetic cause of infant mortality, affecting 1:6,000 live births. SMA causes a loss of spinal motor neurons and is characterised by progressive muscular atrophy.

    Expires: Created:
  • Topology specific security holograms

    The most prominent high security holographic anti-counterfeiting techniques include dot-matrix holograms and electron beam defined holograms. Both techniques require laser illumination, and the image can be viewed with a screen, CCD, or directly by the human eye.

    Expires: Created:
  • One step prodrug trigger for targeted release of drugs

    A tetrazine small-molecule trigger for activating prodrugs has been developed. Active molecules, such as a therapeutic drug or imaging fluorophore, can be caged within a polymer nanoparticle for controlled release at a targeted site.
