MDPI Sensors – Special Issue on Surface Acoustic Waves Biosensors and Microfluidics

Uncategorized
The journal Sensors has just launched the Special Issue "Surface Acoustic Wave Biosensors and Microfluidic Devices", for which Marco Cecchini is acting as Editor. Authors are encouraged to submit novel research papers and reviews, with areas of focus that include, but are not limited to: 1. Surface Acoustic Waves as a biosensing tool: SAW biosensors, SAW-actuated biosensors, SAW interaction with biological species (e.g., cells), functionalization strategies, multiplexing strategies, integration methods; 2. Surface Acoustic Wave microfluidics for breakthrough applications: SAW-induced acoustophoretic devices, SAW-induced acoustic streaming devices, SAW-enhanced biosensing technologies, SAW-actuators, multiplexing strategies, sample preparation. 3. Surface acoustic wave–fluid interaction and biosensing: Modeling/simulation. https://www.mdpi.com/…/surface_acoustic_waves_biosensors_an…

Neurosens wins PHD+ prize with a novel biosensor!

Neurosens wins PHD+ prize with a novel biosensor!

Uncategorized
BRAIKER, a novel biosensor for brain biomarkers, won the PHD+ contest!!! This was organized by University of Pisa, Scuola Normale Superiore, Scuola Superiore Sant'Anna and IMT of Lucca as a part of the Contamination Lab initiative. This course is focused on high tech start-up, how to begin and how to make it grow. Link to the site. The winning pitch was given by Matteo Agostini who presented BRAIKER, a novel biomedical device for brain pathologies that Neurosens developed. It is based on nano-acoustics, namely acoustics exploiting nanotechnology. Thanks to nano-sensors and micro-transductors it can manipulate fluids and perform molecular assays. This lab-on-a-chip will be explored for other pathologies, too. This device was funded by the Regione Toscana project GLIOMICS for brain pathologies.

Partecipation @ European Biosensors Symposium (Florence, 18-21 Feb 2019)

Conferences, News
NeuroSens was present at the 2nd European Biosensor Symposium. This conference aims to stimulate exchanges among researchers working in Europe, or outside Europe, in the field of Biosensors. Here, young researchers presented their recent results from the front end of research, while keynotes speakers showed high-end research and traced the directions of current trends.The Symposium key topics areTechnologies for innovative formats: miniaturized, implantable, non-invasive, disposable, single/multiarray biosensors, paper-diagnosticsBioengineered and biomimetic recognition elements (MIPs, aptamers, receptors, modified enzymes with increasing catalytic activity, sensor-actuator-molecules etc.)Nanotechnology, surface engineering and bioelectronics (Single-Molecule and molecular sensors, nanoparticles and nanostructures enhancing biosensor performance etc.)Cell biosensors: Sensors with cells (Pharma testing, cell toxicity, REACH); in the cell („Pebbels“, indicators, „biosensing“); for cell research and single cell based diagnostics (Patch-Clamp and electrodes, sensors for regenerative therapies)Advances in applications…

A novel (bio)sensor has been patented by NeuroSens!!!!

News, Pubblications
We recently filed a patent for a "Sensing device based on acoustic-waves for fluids analysis". With this device, we will pursue the Technology Transfer route of our results. We are really proud of this achievement! We strongly believe that the application of our results to the every-day life and the benefits for the society that we hope could originate from it are fundamental aspects of our work.
