High throughput screening facility, Trondheim
The robotic screening facility at SINTEF are optimized for high throughput analytical and cultivation work and enables us to process of thousands of samples or cultures per day.
Laboratory for advanced materials characterisation
The advanced materials characterisation laboratory in Oslo is equipped with a wide range of microscopes and surface analysis instruments able to image and analyse specimens on many length and depth scales. The local chemical composition and structure can also be determined from the micro- down to the atomic level.
We will develop a wireless, highly portable and low-cost ultrasound based guidance system for needle insertion procedures.
BubbleCAN – Microbubbles for Ultrasound-Mediated Cancer Treatment
BubbleCAN addresses the optimization of a product for the delivery of very high local concentrations of drugs to tumors using non-invasive focused ultrasound. The product is based on SINTEF owned technology platforms.
PolSi – A new industrial production method for next generation lab-on-a-chip systems
The objective of the project is to develop a new method for producing better and less expensive lab-on-a-chip systems, e.g. for medical diagnostics.
Honoured for invention in neurosurgical ultrasound
SINTEF’s prize for outstanding research in 2016 has been jointly awarded to ultrasound researcher Tormod Selbekk at SINTEF and neurosurgeon Geirmund Unsgård at St. Olav's Hospital/NTNU.
Commercialising gas bubbles for cancer drug delivery
Researchers are now working to design stable micro-bubbles which, combined with ultrasound, can deliver cancer drugs straight to the target tumour.
