This year, two files with product score health records, a reagent for use in microbiology services, were approved by the Laboratory for Experimental Biomodels (LABEX) and nutritional bioproducts to raise immune system defenses developed by the Center for Applied Applications. Biotechnology, the specialist commented.

In addition, it has been approved to build a remote control system (a digital bracelet) for use in the elderly with chronic diseases, to provide them with timely health services in case of emergency, according to research conducted by the University of Orient (UO), Balangir said. Shoes.

Eight photovoltaic systems have also been installed on livestock farms in the municipality of Palma Soriano, a plastic tubular bioanalyzer with accelerating anaerobic digestion for cooking food on the La Palma farm, six photovoltaic water pumping systems and an ecological sprinkler irrigation system for agricultural crop areas.

A total of 10 earthquakes detected the National Seismological Service networks in this period, as well as for several days they observed anomalous seismic activity caused by the earthquake in Haiti, which kept workers of the National Center for Seismic Research (Cenais ) in constant vigilance.

Enrique Diego Arango Arias, deputy technical director of Cenais, highlighted that in 2021 solar panels will be installed at Soroa, Bellon, Maesi and Las Mercedes stations, to make them independent of the national electric power system.

He stressed that a tsunami warning system has been implemented at the central station, with the calculation of the arrival time and height of waves for the most unfavorable scenarios and geodynamic measurements in seismically active areas.

In Environmental Affairs, Luz Margarita Figueiredo, Director of the Eastern Center for Ecosystems and Biodiversity, articulated the continuity of international projects linking the Caribbean landscape and biological corridor for conservation of areas and species, and studies of biodiversity, legumes and birds.
