According to our Patent the liquids are characterized with the help of SEMILAB setup which was designed to measure lifetime in semiconductors.
Price of set up - 190 000 Euro

Description of proposed mobile e-tongue
The proposed mobile e-tongue consists from 1) special box with electronics and measured system, 2) sensor strips, 3) laptop or tablet PC, 4) computer program. The set of responses (light induced photovoltaic signals) is individual for the certain substance and can be used for its selective recognition (electronic fingerprint).

Advantages:
Simplicity and low cost analysis comparing with conventional chemical analytic techniques
The substance characteristics are presented as 2D or 3D mappings
Creation of fingerprint (electronic photography) of smell, liquids, etc.

Possible market:
Control of explosives, drugs, toxic substances.
Detecting of counterfeit products.
Testing the quality of materials both during production and during storage use.
Control of natural transformation of food liquids and aging of substances

What has been done:
Concept of sensor screen
Laboratory prototype
Series of sensor elements for the detection of certain liquids
Algorithms of sensors treatment
The efficiency of the method on the recognition of different liquids and biological objects were tested
It was obtained 2 international patents

New effective light- and thermo-resistant biocide preparations (so-called “nanoantibiotics” of a new generation) are proposed for the treatment and prolonged disinfection of wound dressings and sanitary materials, clothes and military camouflage, аnd also for disinfection of fish aquariums (or ponds) and pools.

PROJECT IDEA: to create novel biocide preparations based on polymer/inorganic hybrids and metal nanoparticles with a wide antibacterial, antimicrobial and antifungal action, with respect to which microorganisms do not develop resistance.


IMPLEMENTATION:
Polymer/inorganic matrix with spherical metal nanoparticles


ADVANTAGES OF OUR “NANOANTIBIOTICS”:
• they contain biocompatible nontoxic components and very small (< 10 nm) metal nanoparticles;
• possess a high biocide activity against numerous bacteria, fungi and viruses;
• are stable in time (up to 2 years) and are resistant to the light and temperature action;
• retain their bactericidal/fungicidal effect to very low concentrations;
• show a high adhesion to wound dressings and tissues of various natures;
• their solutions could be used as spray for processing of linen, clothes and camouflage;
• comprise components, which are widely available, that allows quickly adjusting their production in Ukraine;
• could widely be applied as biocide agents for disinfection of fish aquariums or ponds without any biological risks.

 

 

New biocompatible and biodegradable micellar carriers for the delivery of fat-soluble vitamins (A, E, D) in living organisms are proposed, as well as the technology of obtaining and use of such micellar systems as an efficient dietary supplements in animal husbandry, fisheries and medicine.

Project idea:
use the new micellar nanocarriers on the basis of the asymmetric block copolymers with interactive hydrophilic blocks for drug delivery

Advantages:
the simpler of the micellar carrier structure;
the increased binding capacity of complex “core” to drugs of different nature;
the impossibility of the micelles destruction on the individual components under the influence of competitive interactions in a living organism.
