“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.
goal of the
“Multisense Chip” project is the development of a
and identification system for biological pathogens in order to build an
integrated “sample in, result out“ system. This
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.
