Vortex enhanced liquid chromatography for HbA1c monitoring based diabetes management in a globalized setting

Project description

A point-of-care assessment of glycosylated hemoglobin

Long-term management of diabetes relies on the assessment of glycated hemoglobin, also known as glycosylated hemoglobin (HbA1c). However, this test requires specialised laboratory equipment and in individuals with hemoglobin variants it fails to accurately estimate the HbA1c fraction. To address this need, the EIC-funded VortexLC project aims to develop a novel device capable of providing an improved HbA1c analysis at the point of care. Researchers will undertake technological advances to miniaturise the assay and enable the quantification of HbA1c variants in an easy and cost-effective manner suitable for the millions of diabetes patients worldwide.
