Portfolio

Disposable dilator

Disposable dilator for children and adults

UCLan research is developing solutions for the medical equipment market and in particular a dilator product for use in a clinical and home setting.

Water-purifying composite material for use in the photocatalytic destruction of pollutants in water

Water-purifying composite material for use in the photocatalytic destruction of pollutants in water

UCLan`s patented technology enables the removal of pollutants through the use of a relatively inexpensive water-purifying composite material and processing technology that is environmentally benign.

Colour - tuneable fingerprint powders

Colour - tuneable fingerprint powders

UCLan research has developed novel nanopowders which exhibit colour-tuneability in response to the wavelength of the incident radiation.

Developing new drugs to treat brain tumours

Developing new drugs to treat brain tumours

​UCLan has developed and patented a series of new molecules that we hope one day could be advanced into a much needed new treatment for malignant brain tumours.

DNA

DNA forensic test to differentiate between close paternal relatives

UCLan research is developing Rapidly Mutating (RM) YSTRs can differentiate between closely related males. A 13 locus multiplex PCR kit RM-YPlex was developed to simultaneously amplify them, in a robust and sensitive manner down to 0.0625ng template DNA.

Fingerprint powders

New high performance finger print powders

UCLan patented research is developing new high performance fingerprint powders. These new powders have been developed from the surface modification of silica nano particles.

Apparatuses for Estimating Bladder Status

New methods of non-invasively tracking the increase of fluid in a bladder

UCLan patented research using intelligent signal processing is being used to non-invasively track the increase of fluid in a bladder.

Uses of aptamers, ligand-binding fragments of aptamers, and oligonucleotides in the prevention and/or treatments of cancers, and diagnosis of cancers

UCLan patented research is utilising aptamers, ligand-binding fragments of aptamers, and oligonucleotides for use as agents in the prevention and/or treatments of cancers, and diagnosis of cancers.
