“The lab-free CBRN detection device for the identification of biological pathogens on nucleic acid and immunological level as lab-on-a-chip system applying multisensor technologies”

News and events



This project has received funding from the European Union’s Seventh Framework Programme for research, technological development and demonstration under grant agreement no 261810.

The goal of the “Multisense Chip” project is the development of a detection and identification system for biological pathogens in order to build an integrated “sample in, result out“ system. This chip system shall include both a sample preparation function, during which target molecules are directly extracted nucleic-acid-based and/or immunological detection as well as identification steps. Disruptive technologies (e.g., advanced sensor technologies like optoelectronic sensors or electrochemical sensors), lab-on-a-chip technology, and innovative instrumentation are key to reaching the as yet unrealized goal of identifying multiple pathogens in parallel on both the molecular biological level via PCR and immunological means repectively.

A reduction of processing time is a further advantage of the present system. This owed to miniaturization and the combination of all biological processes into a small disposable chip instead of different instruments. Finally, suitably equipped biological laboratories are no longer necessary. To run the required PCR and immunological assays instead, portable systems may be used to analyze suspicious samples directly at the point of interest.
