Technology Centre

It is an operational space for the largest and the most technologically advanced companies. This is the place where business merges with science. By granting access to the infrastructure of the Technology Centre, BPN-T supports commercialisation of scientific research results and initiates the transfer of technology.

In the building with a total useful floor area of 7 200 m2 (2 floors), the following parts are separated:

  • offices,
  • laboratories.

 

BPN-T LABORATORIES

Prepared within the project specialist area of Białystok Science and Technology Park anticipates commissioning of the following laboratories:

PET/MRI Bio-Scanner - Molecular Imaging Laboratory

It features a class II isotopic laboratory, with the state of the art diagnostic equipment - the PET/MR scanner (mMR 3.0 Tesla Biograph) that combines Positron Emission Tomography with Magnetic Resonance. The laboratory allows carrying out unique research in numerous fields of medicine, IT, and physics. for example looking for early Alzheimer’s disease markers, diagnosis and monitoring of head and neck tumours, early diagnosis and therapy evaluation when it comes to cognitive disorders and productive symptoms in psychiatry, as well as creating dynamic 3D models of organs.

Computer Graphics And Interactive Art Laboratory

A platform for collaboration of universities and specialists from such fields as IT, computer graphics, advertising or marketing on innovative, interactive 2D and 3D computer graphics. Training and workshops on interactive computer graphics organised for the staff of regional SMEs serve the purpose of raising their competences in creating digital products.

The laboratory features, inter alia:

  • green box,
  • 3D camera,
  • interactive whiteboard with 3D glasses,
  • programming package with extensions for creating 3D visualisations, scene rendering, photographs retouching, 2D/3D animations, and visual effects,
  • high-efficiency computer hardware for 3D processing,
  • film studio halogen lighting set.

There are training courses carried out in the laboratory in the field of i.a.:

  • professional 3D visualisation in program Blender 3D
  • Adobe Creative Suite 6

3D Prototyping Space

The Room offers several 3D printing technologies. The Objet Connex 500 printer allows creating high-detail and high-quality surfaces. The Fortus 250mc printer allows crating models out of ABS - a highly resistant thermoplastic material. Prototyping Room’s capabilities are complemented with a portable 3D laser scanner. The equipment finds application in such fields as medicine, advertising, automotive, electronics and architecture.

Laboratory of Electromagnetic Compatibility Research

Its purpose is to carry out research and development tasks consisting of testing resistance of prototypes, as well as electric and electronic equipment, to various types of interference, the impact of these prototypes and equipment on the environment, and to provide trainings on the requirements for the producers of the equipment in regards to electromagnetic compatibility. Laboratory has been equipped with specially made, world-class apparatus and Semi Anechoic Chamber - the biggest one in the North-East Poland. It allows to test quite large electric and electronic devices such as: cars and even small planes.

Apart from R&D it is also possible to provide training courses in the matter of requirements for producers, from the point of view of electromagnetic compatibility (CE) of their goods. Entrepreneurs may also obtain certificates allowing their goods to be released for free circulation in the EU.

Biomedical Laboratory

Among other things, it runs projects in the fields of diagnostics of metabolic diseases and studies on food and supplements. There are being conducted  studies on diabetes type II and innovative treatments for this disease.

Physicochemical Laboratory

It specialises, among other things, in designing composite structures and components for automotive and wind energy purposes.

Innovative Metallurgical Laboratory

The laboratory allows comprehensive prototyping of components for machines and equipment used for precision mechanics and mechatronics, as well as for medical technology (implantology). It features i.a. a MIM (metal injection mould technology) sinter production line.

Manufactory Room

Manufatory Room is the place where entities located in BPN-T any and participants of projects such as ‘Graduate in Transfer Chamber’ or ‘Science Battle’ can work on prototypes of their products using modern equipment.
