We offer our expertise in the following fields:
Design, synthesis and characterization of functionalized inorganic nanoparticles (metal and/or metal oxide) with different sizes and functionalizations for specific responses in sensors and biosensors application field. Magnetic nanoparticles are especially important in aquatic environments where the detection limit of pollutants is very low due to its intrinsic preconcentration samples ability.
Design, synthesis and characterization of smart biodegradable polymeric nanocarriers to reduce contaminants of emerging concern, pathogens and antimicrobial resistant bacteria in aquatic ecosystems under sternal stimuli.
LEITAT is a Spanish Technological Center specialized in technological transfers to diverse sectors. LEITAT develops R&D activities providing services and participating in R&D collaborative projects in the areas of biomedicine, biotechnology, wearable technologies, engineering and nanotechnology. LEITAT takes part each year in many projects financed by the regional, national and European Commission funding agencies. Nanomedicine unit develops technological solutions for treatments with sustained-release drug delivery nanocarriers, diagnosis, and biosensing.
