DNA-based antibody detection platforms to facilitate diagnosis
Antibody detection plays an indispensable role in the diagnosis of many health conditions, including infectious, autoimmune and oncological diseases. The EU-funded DNA-NANO-AB project is proposing the development of DNA-based, rapid, user-friendly, sensitive and low-cost electrochemical nanodevices for the detection of clinically relevant antibodies that could be introduced as point-of-care applications. The project will achieve this through the rational design and fabrication of disposable DNA-based sensor platforms, where the detection of specific antibodies will be amplified via an electrochemical read-out approach. The developed platforms will be characterised, optimised and tested using immunoglobulin levels in real representative samples.
