NanoSpain conferences provide an ideal venue for industrial, academic and governmental organizations to share common objectives and drive the commercialisation of nanotechnology discoveries. Last year more than 300 participants gathered in Zaragoza (Spain) for Nanospain2009 and 17 companies exhibited at this meeting. The combined exhibition, poster displays, and catering was a big success.

This year we have chosen Malaga for NanoSpain2010. It is well connected by train to other parts of Spain and Europe.

Join us at Nanospain2010 to meet new and former customers, to get feedback from clients and, why not?, to make new friends. See you in Malaga.

Consejeria de Salud
Andalusia, in the south of Europe, is the most populated region of Spain (8.3 million inhabitants). It has been an autonomous region since 1981, and Andalusia aspires to become one of the leading regions in offering the latest therapeutic opportunities to its citizens. Therefore, the Regional Government, in line with the wishes of Andalusians, is committed to promoting advanced therapies research and its translation into clinical settings.
Recent research advances have given rise to new hope in the treatment and diagnosis of many illnesses for which there is currently no cure. Translational research in the fields of cell therapy and regenerative medicine, clinical genetic and genomic medicine, and nanomedicine seems to have a key role in solving these research riddles.

Each of the above strategic research programs have a specific thematic research centre: CABIMER, GENYO and BIONAND.

BIONAND is born as the Andalusian Reference Centre to promote high-quality research in the field of Nanomedicine. The Centre creates a multidisciplinary research environment that provides expertise and fosters collaborations for the design, development, and use of nanosystems for therapeutic and diagnostic purposes. BIONAND steers the convergence of recent advances in nanotechnology with modern biology and medicine: the new research domain of nanobiotechnology. BIONAND research includes the development of nano-based diagnostics for rapid monitoring and targeted therapies, as well as nano-based localized drug and gene-delivery, and improved cell-nanomaterial interactions. The Centre’s vision will help to improve health by enhancing the efficacy and safety of new and existing therapeutic and diagnostic agents through the discovery and application of innovative nanosystems and devices.

is the materialization of a common objective: to encourage scientific excellence and socio-economic development in Andalusia while setting the standards for the medicine of the 21st century.

Laboratorios Alpha San Ignacio Pharma
Alpha San Ignacio Pharma is an early stage NanoBio Chip company, positioned to deliver a scalable sensor platform to the Molecular Diagnostics world. His first market for 4 year firs roll up phase is the anticoagulants treatment market. Oral Anticoagulants Treatments (in Spanish TAO, tratamientos orales anticoagulantes) is a core market in the developed countries markets. Around 1-1,5% of total population is affected. Comparative studies of the state of the art on the quality of oral anticoagulant therapy reflects a disjunctive choose (warfarin versus acenocoumarol). Mechanism target of coumarin action relies on the significance of vitamin K epoxide reductase inhibition. An a general reference index INR is treated to evaluate patient evolution, however part of the internal effects interaction are a black box and are some room for improvement. Combining nanotechnology and digital signaling is possible to obtain cost and time savings advantages.  Combining advances of semiconductor industry looking directly electrical signaling instead of creating reaction, then spending 2-3 hours to observe results (needing to colored fluid) and altering substrate is possible to reach cost advantages (using less antibodies), saving time, and requiring less knowledge to use it as point of care system. Also at specialized central lab level research opportunities with this scalable and multiplexed technology unveil pharmacogenetics at a reasonable prize allowing not to study singe gen interaction but a most appropriate holistic approach exploring simultaneous interactions in different organ and systems interactions. Now that alphabet genome is interpreted is time to keep surveying words, and single sentences in gene expressions to reach personalized medicine.Alpha San Ignacio Pharma is focused in the enabling technologies and bridging platforms, trying to contribute to global research with easiest to use technologies at a lower cost following Intel business model with Pentium family that facilitate outsource and integration from different providers at a reasonable price to quality adjusted model that facilitate standard adoption.

Product Description

The basic product consists of a highly sensitive Field Effect Transistor (FET) based sensor, capable of detecting femtomolar concentrations of proteins or nucleic acid. The sensitivity of such a nanobio sensor is a function of many variables, but most importantly the receptor material, which in this case consists of functionalized Carbon Nano Tubes (CNTs). The Company plans to integrate the NanoBio Chip within the existing infrastructure of the Infectious Disease, Food Testing and Pharmacogentic Diagnostics Industries, in that order. There are many proven platforms for sample delivery, microfluidics and signal processing, and therefore the Company will focus efforts on providing the most compact, and sensitive device within a universally adaptable platform.

MecWins is committed to developing new biosensing nanotechnologies addressing the needs for fast, easy and highly sensitive genetic analysis. The goal of MecWins is to provide cutting edge tools for genetic analysis for disease prognosis, diagnosis and Pharmacogenomics.

MecWins applies the latest advancements of Nanotechnology in the Sensors field through close collaboration with key research groups in Nanomechanical sensing. 
Nanomechanical biosensors are based on the principle that molecular recognition on the surface of a bio-functionalized micromechanical system (e.g., a cantilever) results in a bending (deflection) of few nanometers (static mode) or in a change of the resonant frequency (dynamic).

Mecwins has also signed a Transfer of Knowledge Agreement with CSIC*, one of the major scientific players in Spain.

Advantages of MecWins technology

The combination of advanced instrumentation for the optical read-out of the nanomechanical signal together with the study of the hydration forces in the biolayers provides key advantages to MecWins technology, including:
  1. Label-free detection.
  2. Parallel detection in bench top equipment.
  3. Robust response in a flexible platform: Any cantilever design and cantilever number is addressable by the same read-out platform with MecWins technology.
  4. Shorter analysis time.
  5. Lower cost.
  6. High sensitivity: Over 100 fold higher sensitivity than the label dependent microarrays.
  7. Excellent specificity: Clear imprints for matching, non-matching and SNP mismatching DNA are obtained by Mecwins technology.
Application fields
  1. Biomedicine
  2. Pharmacogenomics
  3. Drug discovery
  4. microRNA
  5. Surface characterization
  6. MEMS monitoring and characterization
  1. Medical diagnostics
