A research team develop biotransistors able to hear small beats of live

Researchers at IBEC and ICMAB develop a flexible, cheap and biocompatible transistor platform able to record an electrocardiogram of cells and micro-tissues during long periods of time.

The platform, based on organic transistor technology (EGOFET), can also measure the effect of drugs on beating cells, as cardiomyocytes, opening the door to several applications such as implantable devices for health.

IBEC signs a new agreement with ICMS of TU Eindhoven

The institute for Bioengineering of Catalonia (IBEC) and the Institute for Complex Molecular Systems (ICMS), a research institute of the Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e), have signed the first agreement between the two institutes to foster their collaboration. Both research centres share similarities such as their multidisciplinarity, their active missions to connect with industry and clinicians, and a strong research in nanomedicine, chemical biology, chip technology, regenerative medicine and tissue engineering. This institutional alliance will allow to share resources, knowledge and provide mobility programs.
