Micro Nano Bio Systems
MNBS is a cluster of projects targeting systems and applications that have, or interact with, biological components. The MNBS cluster includes applications in health, environment, and food and beverage industry.
The MNBS area was initiated in July 2005 (during FP6) with a consultation workshop on "Exploiting the new possibilities at the interface of micro& nano systems and the living world". The projects follow different strategies but with the same major target of achieving substantial improvement on system integration (e.g. miniaturization and reduced power consumption, integration of molecular and cell biology), on system quality or & reliability and shorter time-to-market.
The MNBS cluster includes the following sub-groups, divided by application:
A1. Miniaturised and Lab-on-chip systems for biological (in vitro), chemical and biochemical analysis
A2. Systems for in vivo interaction with the human body
C. Food and Beverage
