  • Test de dépistage Polytech
    Un nouveau test de dépistage rapide
    December 17, 2020
    Des chercheurs de l’ULB ont développé un test de dépistage rapide – comme ceux qui sont utilisés pour détecter une grossesse – en utilisant des nanoparticules d’argent au lieu de nanoparticules d’or. La méthode a été testée sur les anticorps de COVID-19. Les avantages des nanoparticules d’argent sont qu’elles permettent de réaliser des tests moins chers et plus sensibles que ceux réalisés avec des nanoparticules d’or.
    Chercheurs d’or… dans les boues des égouts
    January 10, 2020
    Or, argent, platine : les chercheurs de l’ULB participent à un projet de recherche pour récupérer ces métaux dans les boues résiduaires des stations d’épuration de la Région de Bruxelles-Capitale.
