Final Report - CELLFORCE (Development of a single cell based biosensor for subcellular on-line monitoring of cell performance for diagnosis and healthcare)

Project ID: 16626
Funded under: FP6-IST

Abstract

This is the final report of the CELLFORCE project. Funded under the European Community's Sixth Framework Programme, CELLFORCE aimed to develop new intelligent diagnostic equipment using biosensors. The sensors represent a major step forward in knowledge of interactions between biological and non-biological systems.

The report outlines the development of a sensor based on the traction forces that each cell transduces to surface through focal adhesion points, where cells connect to the material surface. The aim was to establish a long term measurement system for observing cellular motions and associated forces. The report concludes with some remarks concerning the design of experiments.
