Final Report - ASSAY FOR BIOMARKERS (Magnetic nanoparticles for multiplexed assays for low and high molecular weight biomarkers)

Project ID: 252935
Funded under: FP7-PEOPLE

Abstract

This is the final report for the ASSAY FOR BIOMARKERS project which received funding under the European Commission (EC)'s Seventh Framework Programme (FP7). This research proposal outlined a new technique for screening biomarkers with the capability of working directly in biological samples. The benefits of monitoring biomarkers lie in their ability to reveal signs of disease before the onset of major symptoms. Two technologies were implemented, namely flow cytometry and nanopores, in order to detect sexually transmitted infections and to detect cancer reporters, respectively. These technologies are presented in detail in this report. It also covers the activities undertaken and finally covers a brief overview of the results' potential impact.
