Multiparametric quantum dot bioassay for point of care diagnosis

Objective

Proposal Abstract: Each year 377,000 new European citizens develop lung cancer and 340,000 die from it. Studies show that early diagnosis and accurate cancer typing could save number of lives. Laboratories nowadays have a wide panel of reproducible diagnostic tests at their disposal: these are mostly routine tests realised in centralized laboratories.

The needs for early diagnosis, multiparametric analysis of results and quick monitoring of disease progression or therapeutic sensitivity were progressively left aside, whereas they could be fulfilled with using decentralised diagnostic tools, close to the patient. This project aims at improving the healthcare of patients by elaborating a unique POC diagnosis platform which will help specialists to deliver an earlier diagnosis and to decide for appropriate treatment. The goal is to provide the clinicians with multiparametric measurement of the main 4/5 essential markers and to support decision with a software tool.
