Singlet oxygen based detection of phenolic compounds

Biosensors, singlet oxygen based detection of phenolic compounds

The University of Antwerp has developed a new sensing technique to detect phenolic compounds in water streams on bases of photocatalysis and electrochemical detection. The sensors have a very low detection limit (0.012 μM for 8-hydroxyquinoline) and fast response time (< 10 s). The sensors are a fast and robust alternative for COD measurements used today for phenolic compounds. More info

Active filtering technology for algae harvesting

Active filtering technology for algae harvesting

The commercial cultivation of microalgae is a rapidly growing industry worldwide. The main technical challenge nowadays is harvesting the microalgae, as centrifugation and classic filtration come with high cost. The University of Antwerp has developed a novel method to enable a more efficient harvesting, based on filtration combined with algae cake removal using a magnet brush. This allows for lower energy consumption, but safeguards high harvesting rates and minimal wear of the microalgae. A functional prototype has already been build, and we are now looking for device manufacturing companies, and companies working in the field of algae cultivation, to bring this method to the market. More info

Human variability with 3D scanning

Human variability with 3D scanning

At the Vision Lab of the University of Antwerp, new technologies have been developed to deal with human variability in product design. The effectiveness of the approach has already been proven in the design process for earphones, the construction of fracture fixation plates, modelling of head variability, etc.
