Paper-based device developed for rapid diagnosis of lung diseases

A team of IMB-CNM-CSIC researchers has coordinated the design of an instrument that combines microfluidics on paper and electrochemical transduction. It easily and quickly detects chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), the third leading cause of death worldwide, and its versatility allows its application to the detection of other target biomarkers, such as specific RNA sequences of the SARS-CoV-2 virus.

New method for the detection of RNA viruses such as SARS-CoV-2

Teams from the University of Barcelona, IQAC-CSIC, IMB-CNM-CSIC and INMA (CSIC-UNIZAR) design a new method to detect viral RNA. The methodology is effective and faster than the PCR test. It can also be applied to identify other viral pathogens that cause serious diseases in the population.

The CSIC participates in the development of a new generation of more robust and reliable induction cooktops

The CSIC collaborates in the European project iRel40, together with BSHE, Politecnico di Milano, Fraunhofer and Infineon, among others, for the development of a new generation of more reliable and robust induction cooktops. The IMB-CNM-CSIC is in charge of improving the qualification tests of power devices and determining why destructive events occur. The improvement of the protocols in the evaluation of components for power electronics and to improve their useful life are also sought.
