    This study presents an enhanced paper-based analytical device (PAD) for forward and reverse group blood typing. The proposed PAD uses a novel methodology, which provides highly reliable results on a fully cellulose based ...
  • Optimal machining strategy selection in ball-end milling of hardened steels for injection molds 

    Buj Corral, Irene; Ortiz Marzo, José Antonio; Costa Herrero, Lluís; Vivancos Calvet, Joan; Luis Pérez, Carmelo Javier (Multidisciplinary Digital Publishing Institute (MDPI), 2019-03-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    In the present study, the groups of cutting conditions that minimize surface roughness and its variability are determined, in ball-end milling operations. Design of experiments is used to define experimental tests performed. ...
  • Potencial de la celulosa en la construcción de nuevos materiales

    Open Access
    Radio frequency microelectromechanical system (RF-MEMS) switches have demonstrated superior electrical performance (lower loss and higher isolation) compared to semiconductor-based devices to implement reconigurable microwave ...
  • Novel applications of nonwood cellulose for blood typing assays 

    Casals Terré, Jasmina; Farré Lladós, Josep; Zuñiga, Allinson; Roncero Vivero, María Blanca; Vidal Lluciá, Teresa (2018-10-03)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Paper-based microfluidics devices can create a new healthcare model. Cellulose is carbohydrate polymer biocompatible and hydrophilic. These characteristics enhance the development of user-friendly diagnostic devices, but ...
  • Novel variable radius spiral-shaped micromixer: from numerical analysis to experimental validation 

    Mehrdel, Pouya; Karimi, Shadi; Farré Lladós, Josep; Casals Terré, Jasmina (2018-10-27)
    Article
    Open Access
    A novel type of spiral micromixer with expansion and contraction parts is presented in order to enhance the mixing quality in the low Reynolds number regimes for point-of-care tests (POCT). Three classes of micromixers ...
