Patenting in Europe

Innovation in medical technologies is booming. That is why MEDICA and COMPAMED attract such huge audiences each year, and an increasing number of exhibitors. New technologies are combining material science, electronics, engineering and biochemistry. With an increasing number of us living longer, the market for healthcare appliances has ever greater potential. Read more about patenting of medical technologies

New technique moves researchers closer to new range of biosensors

19/12/2014 - Researchers from North Carolina State University have found a way of binding peptides to the surface of gallium nitride (GaN) in a way that keeps the peptides stable even when exposed to water and radiation. The discovery moves researchers one step closer to developing a new range of biosensors for use in medical and biological research applications. read more

Breakthrough simplifies design of gels

18/12/2014 - Scientists at the University of Strathclyde and City University of New York have created methods that dramatically simplify the discovery of biological gels for food, cosmetics and biomedicine. read more

Promising new method for rapidly screening cancer drugs

17/12/2014 - Traditional genomic, proteomic and other screening methods currently used to characterize drug mechanisms are time-consuming and require special equipment, but now researchers led by chemist Vincent Rotello at the University of Massachusetts Amherst offer a multi-channel sensor method using gold nanoparticles that can accurately profile various anti-cancer drugs and their mechanisms in minutes. read more

Squid supplies blueprint for printable thermoplastics

16/12/2014 - Squid, what is it good for? You can eat it and you can make ink or dye from it, and now a Penn State team of researchers is using it to make a thermoplastic that can be used in 3-D printing. read more

Turning biological cells to stone improves cancer and stem cell research

11/12/2014 - A new technique to transmute living cells into more permanent materials that defy rot and can endure high-powered probes is widening research opportunities for biologists who are developing cancer treatments or tracking stem cell evolution. read more

Injectable 3-D vaccines could fight cancer and infectious diseases

09/12/2014 - New findings show programmable biomaterials can be delivered using needle injection to induce an immune response and fight deadly diseases. read more

3-D mammography improves cancer detection in dense breasts

02/12/2014 - A major new study being presented at the annual meeting of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) has found that digital breast tomosynthesis, also known as 3-D mammography, has the potential to significantly increase the cancer detection rate in mammography screening of women with dense breasts. read more

Technique allows ultrasound to penetrate bone, metal

28/11/2014 - Researchers from North Carolina State University have developed a technique that allows ultrasound to penetrate bone or metal, using customized structures that offset the distortion usually caused by these so-called "aberrating layers." read more

Membrane reduces scarring in damaged blood vessels

27/11/2014 - When blood vessels are damaged through surgery, it can trigger an endless cycle of scarring and repair. Now, a new surgical membrane delivers the healing action of vitamin A. read more

Novel metamaterial properties within hexagonal boron nitride

26/11/2014 - U.S. Naval Research Laboratory (NRL) scientists have demonstrated that confined surface phonon polaritons within hexagonal boron nitride (hBN) exhibit unique metamaterial properties that enable novel nanoscale optical devices for use in optical communications, super-resolution imaging and improved infrared cameras and detectors. read more
