Plastic materials are essential in all areas of healthcare, from the most basic products, such as plasters, to the most advanced medical devices. Their use in medicine has helped improve patients’ quality of life, reduce costs and increase hygiene. Innovation in biopolymers, i.e. materials for pharmaceutical and medical use in conjunction with biological systems, presents infinite possibilities in the field of health.
A project managed by AIMPLAS has developed a new process for producing rapid COVID-19 tests. According to clinical trials in patients, the test can detect antibodies, as well as the UK variant, with a sensitivity of over 98%.
Given the health emergency generated by the COVID-19 pandemic, AIMPLAS is working to make its knowledge of materials, its capacity for design, prototyping and manufacture, […]
The European FLEXPOL project has developed an innovative antibacterial plastic film using nanoencapsulated essential oils that is more eco-friendly than current hygienization methods.
The BIO-VECTORS project will help develop a functional coating with insecticidal and repellent properties against flies and mosquitos for cardboard containers and packaging suitable for food contact.
The project is developing coatings to be applied in floors, furniture, paint, composites and ceramics to purify the indoor environment of buildings and photodegrade substances such as formaldehyde by means of photodegradation.
We have all heard about excessive emissions of CO2, a gas that is absolutely necessary for life on Earth, but that in high concentrations causes […]
The main objective of this R&D project is to develop an innovative methodology to support companies from the Valencian Community, in particular, SMEs, when identifying and controlling NIAS, with the aim of improving the food safety of food-contact plastic packages.
The aim of LIFE PISA Project (LIFE13 ENV/ES/000504) is to demonstrate the viability of the combination of several systems currently used to control Lepidoptera pests […]
