The invention proposes a solution for a novel ski binding system, which sets for ski touring as well as telemarking new benchmarks in terms of comfort and safety. Thereby it fulfills the requirements of two different forms of skiing in an entirely original form and opens up completely novel applications. Due to its modular design new ways of marketing the system can be introduced while an efficient production can be realized.
Enantiomerically pure N-acyl-a-aminonitriles gained these days interest in the pharmaceutical industry since a range of recently developed pharmaceuticals are based on this product class. Prominent examples are Vildagliptin®, Saxagliptin® or NVP-DPP-728, which are active pharmaceutical ingredients against diabetes type II and at least two of them are successful already on the market. The described technology enables a safe, fast and competitive chemical production of specific N-acyl-a-aminonitriles or N-sulfonyl-a-aminonitriles, serving as intermediates for the synthesis of, e.g., Vildagliptin®.
On behalf of the Bielefeld University, PROvendis offers access to rights for commercial use as well as the opportunity for further co-development.
The newly-invented X-ray lens allows the focusing of X-rays on a point focus of less than 10 µm diameter and also distinguishes itself through high transmissivity and low absorption losses. It is especially interesting for X-ray analysis processes for which a high radiation intensity is required since tenfold radiation intensities are achieved in the focus.
The lenses are easy to manufacture and thus cost-effective.
Optical fibers are particularly well suited for long-distance data transmission, as the attenuation losses are significantly lower than e.g. when using copper conductors. Scientists at the University of Stuttgart have now developed a simple and flexible method of joining solid- and hollow-core fibers that is characterized by low coupling losses and easy and flexible handling. In particular, it is suitable for liquid-filled hollow-core fibers. The method enables a durable, low-loss connection of fibers of different diameters without the application of heat required.
The invention describes a waste safeguard for forming processes, which is using locally applied vibrations to avoid a slug pulling. Implementing this technology increases the operating speed and improves the quality of the machined part. The technology is flexible in use and can be integrated in different forming processes and tools.
Researchers of the University Medical Center of Aachen have developed a blood-based diagnostic test for breast cancer and its pre-cancerous stages, based on the grade and intensity of CpG promoter methylation of early breast cancer biomarkers, i.e. the genes SPAG6, NKX2-6 and PER1 (the SNP panel). Combined, these three genes provide an opportunity to easily test for breast cancer, starting from a patients blood sample (Liquid biopsy). It is very likely that a blood-based test would increase compliance of women to participate in medical prevention of breast cancer. In addition, this concept may allow to broaden prevention to elderly women (>70 years) who currently are not invited to mammography screening.
In April 2016, a blood-based early detection system for colon cancer (the Epi ProColon test by Epigenomics AG) has been approved by the FDA. The RWTH Aachen blood test could be applied in an analogous way for breast cancer detection. Both tests have similar sensitivity and specificity, which may qualify the herein presented test for approval as well. A key argument for the approval of the Epi proColon test by the FDA has been the likelhood of increased acceptance by the relevant population thus reinforcing screening participation.
On behalf of the University of Aachen (RWTH Aachen), PROvendis offers a patent license as well as a research collaboration with licensing option.
A special process to coat SiO2 nanoparticles around with biocidal quaternary ammonium silanes has been achieved, so that the biocidal moiety points always outwards. Subsequently, the nanoparticles can be deposited on one surface from a dispersion of a simple solvent (for example alcohol). The forming surface coating acts purely contact active antimicrobial. That means, when touching, no toxic substances go over the contacting body. The new SiO2 nanoparticles are suitable for the antimicrobial coating especially in sanitary and wet areas, for example, of silicone joints. However, all surfaces in principle can be coated with them.
The invention relates to an electronic circuit comprising a plurality of 1T/1MTJ cells arranged in array and being selectable by word lines (Wls) and bit lines (Bls), wherein each 1T/1MTJ cell comprises an
STT-operated magnetic tunnel junction (MTJ) and an access transistor.
The invention relates to a spin torque magnetic flip flop and a shift register incorporating such, enabling high operation speed, non volatility and reducing die space consumption .
In order to increase the storage stability and shelf life of milk, a new treatment process has been developed at Hohenheim University, one that also requires comparatively low treatment temperatures.
The milk can be kept at room temperature for up to a year and yet impresses with its good sensory properties and low vitamin loss.
