Warwick patented technology in new biomaterials for medical applications

Researchers in the UK and the United States have succeeded in ‘fine tuning’ a new thermoplastic biomaterial to enable both the rate at which it degrades in the body and its mechanical properties to be controlled independently.

Diagnostic tool for Coronavirus being developed by University of Warwick makes significant step forward

New study published on rapid test for Coronavirus being developed by University of Warwick demonstrates detection using a model virus rather than just proteins. The diagnostic tool will function without any need for training or complex infrastructure, looking like a ‘pregnancy test’. The team are seeking philanthropic or investment partners to develop and take forward this new technology

New diagnostic tool for rapid detection of Coronavirus being developed by University of Warwick and Partners

Coronavirus diagnostics currently require centralised facilities and collection/distribution of swabs and results are ‘next day’. A new diagnostic tool being developed by the University of Warwick and its partner Iceni Diagnostics may allow on-the-spot detection of Coronavirus infection, without facilities using a simple disposal device.

Freezing cells made safer thanks to new polymer

A new cryoprotectant polymer that dramatically improves the freezing of cells, has been discovered by researchers at the University of Warwick. The new polymers can reduce the amount of organic solvent required in cryopreservation (freezing cells) as well as giving more and healthier cells after thawing. Findings may help reduce cost and improve distribution of cells for cell-based therapies, diagnostics and research
