Project ID: 201914
Funded under: FP7-HEALTH

Abstract

This is the final report for the PORTFASTFLU project which received funding under the European Commission's Seventh Framework Programme (FP7). The project main objective was to develop and validate a rapid diagnostic test for human influenza that would be used for surveillance and early detection of influenza and as a point-of-care tool in developed and developing countries. The diagnostic test had to enable the rapid detection of influenza infection in a fast and specific way (typing and subtyping) using a monolithic disposable cartridge placed in a compact, portable analytical instrument.

The report covers the project context and main objectives and goes on with stating the main results and the consortium activities. It closes with the dissemination activities and use section.
