Yorkshire Concept Board Meeting June 2010

The latest approved projects are:

Lab-On-a-Chip Forensic Analysis System

When a DNA sample is collected for forensic analysis it is sent away to a laboratory and the results are usually returned in a 2-3 day time window. The hull system integrates the laboratory processes onto a mircofluidic chip and allows full analysis in about 1.5 hours. The project is sponsored by the University of Hull and was approved at the June 2010 Board meeting.

 

 

 

Lead-free Piezo Systems

This activity will exploit new University of Leeds intellectual property relating to the creation of a novel class of piezoelectric materials, with the potential to operate in extreme environments normally inaccessible to currently available materials and to meet the regulatory needs for lead-free electronic components. The objective is to prepare the way for a spin-out company manufacturing actuator and sensor components for the aero-space and process industries. This project was approved at the June 2010 Board meeting.

 

 

Smartwasher

Researchers at the University of Huddersfield are developing a new sensing and reporting system to monitor the integrity of bolted joints. The product will utilise latest wireless and energy scavenging technologies to deliver a reliable, low-cost solution for use in safety critical engineering applications. This project was approved at the June 2010 Board meeting.
