Acoustic waves for biosensing and innovation in healthcare

FET-OPEN grant awarded to Biosensors group

By on 15th February 2017

The highly prestigious FET-OPEN grant was awarded by the European Commission to the project “CATCH-U-DNA”, submitted by 7 partners with Prof. E. Gizeli as the coordinator. The work proposes a radically new and highly ambitious plan to develop a platform that could replace the PCR amplification method with an ultrasensitive detection scheme based on the use of ultrasound hydrodynamics. The method will be validated during the detection of common mutations found in colorectal and lung cancer.
