By modifying the user interfaces the system's rules engine can be used for a variety of control and monitoring applications.

The aID System: Integration of any hardware device that is useful for collecting information (sensors) or for action, as well as any other system that improves the final set-up, for example, location systems. In this way we are not limited by specific products, but rather can respond to the needs of each client as they arise in each project. The basic idea for the development and implementation of aID systems is to start from the point of view of the end users, real people with functional diversity, leaving in the background other points of view.

TARGETED SECTORS

COMPETITIVE ADVANTAGES 

The aID System follows the most widespread standards (Ethernet, wifi, TCP/IP, Modbus, etc.) and is oriented to the most prominent platforms (Android).

Avoiding the use of cameras to monitor people.

System scalability, leading to the implementation of alert systems in the home environment.

High flexibility to adapt the technology developed or incorporate new features.

The products developed by the company are multi-component adhesives, in a cyanoacrylate base mixed with "chemical plasticizers." These plasticizers are new chemical entities protected by patent. The resulting mixture provides distinct properties compared to the adhesives of the competition.

For application of the adhesive, the company has also developed an innovative device.

ABSTRACT

BENEFITS OF THE TECHNOLOGY

ADHBIO is a technology-based company engaged in the research, development and manufacture of bioadhesives and sealants for medical and veterinary use. Currently the company has four patents.

INNOVATIVE ASPECTS AND COMPETITIVE ADVANTAGES

Bioadhesives are liquid glues that, thanks to their biocompatibility, can be used to close wounds and surgical incisions in living beings, as an alternative to traditional methods of wound closure, such as sutures, staples and dressings. This new technology offers a developing field with many advantages over traditional methods of treatment and suture: pre- and postoperative savings on cost by reducing the need for anaesthesia and theoretical time of hospitalization and postoperative healing, less risk of infection by external agents, improved aesthetics, ease of handling and application, and less stress for the patient.

48

The company's competitive advantage over its competitors is the composition of the bioadhesive (multi-component vs. single component). Adhflex® y Flexbond® are the company’s first commercial adhesives for the human and animal health sectors respectively, which are characterized by high flexibility and bond strength.

With this technology, protected by patents, the company has the capacity to develop a comprehensive portfolio of customized products, combining cyanoacrylate with different "plasticizers" and in the right proportions. We obtain products (adhesives, sealants, etc.) that serve specific requirements of application, such as flexibility, time of application, adhesion or sealing capacity, viscosity, tissue type, etc., and therefore, cover applications for which the bioadhesives of the competition are not eligible.


APPLICATIONS OF THE TECHNOLOGY 

Plastic and cosmetic surgery.

Internal surgery: abdominal, urologic, ophthalmic, and cardiovascular.

Trauma treatments.

Treatment of superficial wounds and burns.

Biomechanics/Bioengineering: joining of biomaterials to tissues and bones.

Veterinary use: general application.

New, patented technology for the indelible marking of food units at their point of origin.

The laser marking process consists of two stages: first, a laser beam reproduces a design (logos, alphanumeric codes, etc.) on the surface of the piece, producing a groove on the outermost area of the piece; second, depending on the variety of food to be marked, a so-called contrast agent is applied to highlight the brand, or a coating product is applied to protect the area marked. In both cases, the laser marking technology ensures the useful life of the piece and only components compatible with existing food additive legislation and fit for human consumption are used.

The company offers various solutions for the inclusion of laser marking technology in the production of the product to be handled at the client’s facilities, by custom adaptation of industrial machinery models developed by the company.

ABSTRACT LASER FOOD is a technology-based spin-off company that develops high-tech solutions for the food industry. The first product developed is a new, patented technology for the indelible marking of food units at their point of origin. The objective of the marking is to ensure unit traceability of the pieces, understanding these as different types of fruits and vegetables.

BENEFITS OF THE TECHNOLOGY INNOVATIVE ASPECTS 

118

Alternative and advantageous solutions to the traditional methods of marking agrifood pieces (mainly adhesive labels) allows for: 

Individual marking, at the unit level, of each agrifood piece, with all the versatility that this permits.

Unit traceability back to the source through the ability to identify pieces with individual codes.

Easy integration of the laser-marking step within the different processes of the processing factories for agrifood pieces.


Flexibility in adapting traceability codes or logos to variations in industrial production.

APPLICATIONS OF THE TECHNOLOGY

Reduction of waste generated by the industrial process. The production of adhesives, supports for labels and ink becomes unnecessary.

Marketing of fruits (specifically of melons) by companies that have decided to identify their products with symbols and logos that guarantee their origin.

Reduced energy consumption due to the elimination of many currently used industrial stages: production of paper, logo printing, the application of adhesives, etc.

Marking solutions using this technology on other varieties of fruits, including tomatoes, bananas, kiwis and apples.

Decreased production of CO2 associated with the industrial process by consuming fewer raw materials and requiring less energy to operate.

TARGETED SECTORS

Impossibility of falsification or fraud in the identification of agrifood pieces since the marking process produces indelible identification.

COMPETITIVE ADVANTAGES 

Unit traceability provides added value, since food security is guaranteed in terms of origin and/or quality.

Reinforcement of product differentiation by including custom logos and personalised marks. With the differentiation of agrifood pieces, products in the market can be unambiguously identified, achieving a price increase, and therefore, increased profitable.

The marking technology used provides an indelible identification on the surface of the piece. Any attempt at modification or removal leaves visible signs that betray destructive handling.

119

Agrifood sector: control of traceability for marketed products. These companies include both those responsible for production as well as those related to marketing.

Pore size: from 3 nm to 50 nm. Total porosity of the material: 30% to 90%. Porous particle size: 100 nm to several microns. Chemical composition of the outer and inner surfaces: oxidized, hydro-carbonized or functionalized with different finishes of biological interest.

These parameters are tightly controlled in units of produce batches of about 2 g (the productive capacity of the company is up to 2 kg of material per year). In order to certify all parameters, a quality certificate is given that includes a structural and morphological analysis, done in the laboratory of the company.

Based on their research, they develop applications in sectors where silicon is not traditionally present, such as the sectors of nanomedicine, pharmaceuticals or photovoltaics, as well as biological sensors such lab-on-a-chip or anti-fraud markers. (A)
