Unit 2 Nanbiosis have signed an agreement with a Belgian Enterprise.

U2 unit of Nanbiosis (Custom antibody service) has recently signed a 3-year contract with UNISENSOR S.A. (Liege, Belgium) for producing on a high scale a collection of immunoreagents used in their diagnostic kits.

UNISENSOR S.A. is a SME biotech company that develops on site diagnostic systems for food safety. Unit 2 of NANBIOSIS, coordinated by Nb4D-CSIC holds a research collaboration for more than 7 years developing new bioproducts and transferring knowledge to UNISENSOR S.A. As result of the collaboration several diagnostic kits are nowadays in the market, consequently this contract has been signed with the aim to supply UNISENSOR S.A. with immunoreagents for their diagnostic products. The biomolecules produced by CAbS are completely characterized and respond to quality control criteria required by UNISENSOR S.A.

NANBIOSIS in three projects funded by CaixaIMPULSE

La Caixa has just presented the twenty projects selected by CaixaImpulse in a call with more than 70 proposals from different research centres, hospitals and universities. CaixaImpulse is an initiative unique in Spain that aims to boost research in biotechnology and life sciences to develop projects that generate value in society.

Among the selected projects there are two coordinated by NANBIOSIS researchers: Pseudomonas aeruginosa diagnosis led by Miriam Corredor Sánchez (Unit 2 of NANBIOSIS) and ISCHEMSURG, led by Monica Mir (Unit 7 of NANBIOSIS). In addition, the project ExoLiver, in which participates Rosa Villa and the research group coordinating Unit 8 of NANBIOSIS, has been also granted.

Unit 2 of NANBIOSIS participates in the FoodSmartPhone project of Marie Sklodowska Curie.

The Nb4D group of CSIC, coordinator of Unit 2 of NANBIOSIS led by Pilar Marco has joined the consortium for the FoodSmartPhone project funded by the Marie Sklodowska Curie Research Program. The Marie Sklodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA) support training in research and professional development aimed at innovation skills.

The objective of the project is to develop a smartphone-based diagnostic and detection tool for simplified quick pre-selection of food quality and safety parameters. This is because food safety and quality tests are currently inefficient, expensive and ineffective and can not guarantee food safety for all consumers or prevent possible incidents of food fraud.

FoodSmartPhone offers an opportunity for a doctorate that covers all aspects of smartphone-based detection tools, as well as a wealth of scientific knowledge as well as innovation and transfer.

The Nb4D group will act as leader of work package For more information 1 which aims to develop new concepts of ligand binding assay. The group will host two ESRs (Early Stage Researchers) and will also organize training events and an advanced PhD course for the production of haptens and bioreceptors.

Nanobiotechnology for Diagnostics Group awarded with TECNIO grant to encourage Technology Transfer

The Nanobiotechnology for Diagnostics Group (Nb4D), the host group for the Custom Antibody Service of Unit 2 of NANBIOSIS was recently awarded with grant that ACCIÓ provides to groups who are seeking to be accredited with the TECNIO seal. The aim is to help define and boost their action plans for technology transfer.

These grants are destined at financing for 3 years the integration of these groups in the UAB-CEI sphere of the TECNIO network. The group will use this finance for activities related to the execution during the first year of a growth plan to increase their technology transfer to the private sector.

The TECNIO seal is granted by the Government of Catalonia, through ACCIÓ (Agency for Business Competitiveness) to identify the developers and facilitators of differential technologies in Catalonia.
