 FINISHED 
The decision-making in chemotherapy nowadays depends on standard methods that are liquid chromatography (LC-MS/MS) followed by mass spectrometry or capillary electrophoresis; both are labour- and cost-intensive and can be performed only in dedicated hospitals and laboratories. This lead to a minimal therapeutic drug monitoring in patients and hence that 30-60% of drugs are administered without cli ...

In the milk industry, one of most pressing unmet needs is the timely detection of mycotoxins that originate from animal feed and are secreted into milk. In particular, milk and dairy products can be contaminated by aflatoxin M1, a potent carcinogen. The aflatoxin contamination represents a hazard for human health and an economic loss for the dairy industry. The available technology for aflatoxin d ...

Current methodologies for detection of food contamination based on heavy analytical tools cannot guarantee a safe and stable food supply. The reasons are the complexity, the long time-to-result (2-3 days) and the cost of these tools, which limit the number of samples that can be practically analyzed at food processing and storage sites. The need for screening tools that will be still reliable but ...

Living Photonics: Monitoring light propagation through cells (LiPhos)

Start date: Nov 1, 2012, End date: Oct 31, 2015,

LIPHOS is focused on the development of completely innovative biophotonic diagnosis tools, which are for the first time implemented using cells as constituent material. Here, and unlike existing systems, light remains confined in a waveguide whose core is uniquely composed by cells, giving rise to the "Living photonics" concept. In this context, cells play a two-fold role: i) they form the biomate ...

Biosensor nanoarrays for environmental monitoring (BIOMONAR)

Start date: Apr 1, 2010, End date: Mar 31, 2014,

BIOMONAR develops multiplexed nanoarray biosensors for environmental targets, i.e. pollutants and pathogens. The innovative approach engineers three sensor platforms (surface, liposomal, living cell) which exploit a panel of periplasmic binding proteins (PBPs) as the common selective element. The nanoarrays are integrated into a microfluidics system for in-situ monitoring. The strategy allows for ...

"Blood glucose monitoring is important in the care of diabetes mellitus and is presently accomplished via a “finger-stick” in which a lancet is used to prick the finger and withdraw a small amount of blood for testing. The problem with the existing “finger-stick”-devices is that blood sampling is painful, it increases the risk for infections and the test is discontinuous. A method for measuring t ...
