  • Publication number: 20150306546
    Abstract: The invention relates to a method for obtaining porous hollow fibers having molecularly imprinted spheres embedded therein, said method comprising the steps of: simultaneously and independently injecting a doping solution and a pore-forming solution into an extrusion die; extruding or spinning porous hollow fibers; coagulating the porous hollow fibers that leave step (b) in an aqueous solution with an aqueous solution having a temperature between 15° C.-25° C.; winding the flexible porous hollow fibers coagulated in step (c); leaving them to dry and storing same under vacuum conditions. The resulting porous hollow fibers are used to form filtrating modules in which a plurality of fibers are disposed longitudinally and in parallel. The filtrating modules can be assembled together to form filtering devices intended, in a preferred example, for gradual blood purification and the subsequent qualitative and/or quantitative identification of the molecules retained in the first filter of each filtering module.

  • Patent number: 8992442
    Abstract: The invention relates to a device for taking a liquid bone marrow sample (aspiration) and a solid bone sample (biopsy) in the same procedure, which can thus replace specialized needles for taking bone marrow and needles exclusively used for taking bone biopsies. The device for taking liquid bone marrow samples and a solid bone sample has a simple mechanism that uses two grooved clamps, it is easy to disassemble for sterilization and its handle is designed to perform the puncture easily. The needle of the device is hollow, and within it a guide is placed with two sections of different diameters. The guide makes it possible to open up the empty needle channel to allow the bone marrow liquid to flow and be extracted, and also to close the channel to be able to penetrate the tissue. The purpose of this invention is to combine the procedures of bone marrow aspiration and bone biopsy, thus reducing the patient's discomfort and the time needed for the procedure.

  • Patent number: 8250741
    Abstract: A reconfigurable computer-controlled system is provided based on the positioning of bolts. A greater density of bolts per unit area increases the variety of figures or shapes that can be defined by a frame or tool used in the industry, such that it is no longer necessary to construct rigid surfaces with each change made to the shape of the product to be produced or surface to be formed. The use of the memory effect material as an actuator in the reconfigurability mechanism is the key to the success of the reconfigurable system and the control system owing to the permissibility of small bolts which can be adapted to standard sizes and shapes. The mechatronic system uses the positioning of bolts for the reconfigurability of surfaces to manufacture and shape materials.
