Microfluidics. Detection. Point of need, rapid detection, Sensors
Research Area 3: High-throughput, rapid, accurate and easy to use in-field detection technologies
We offer an extensive array of microfluidic technologies that are ready for scale up at high TRLs. We offer expertise in this areas along with expertise in surface science, sensors and detection systems. Within the scope of this call, we would ideally like to partner with groups specializing in assay development (immuno, molecular, nucleic, cellular etc) and/or biochemistry/biotech specialization.
The Microfluidics technology group at the Fraunohofer Project Center@DCU a one-stop shop for the development of microfluidics-based solutions for decentralised bioanalytical testing. Typical applications of these next-generation “Lab-on-a-Chip” platforms are sample-to-answer integration for biomedical point-of-care and global diagnostics, liquid handling automation for the life sciences, process analytical techniques and cell line development for biopharma as well as monitoring the environment, infrastructure, industrial processes and agrifood.
