Ultrasensitive BIOsensing platform for multiplex CELLular protein PHEnotyping at single-cell level

Project description

Groundbreaking lab-on-a-chip for cancer diagnosis

Circulating tumour cells (CTCs), carried around the body in the blood circulation, are responsible for cancer metastasis. The EU-funded BIOCELLPHE project proposes the generation of engineered bacteria that can identify and bind to specific protein targets on the surface of CTCs, triggering the production of chemical signals that can be identified with extreme sensitivity using surface-enhanced Raman scattering (SERS). SERS is an analytical technique employing plasmonic nanoparticles as optical enhancers for ultrasensitive chemical analysis at a single-molecule detection level. Researchers will create a lab-on-a-chip SERS device for the ultrasensitive identification and multiplex phenotyping of CTCs. This initiative will pave the way for a new era of medical diagnostics, providing a new paradigm for biology and biomedicine.
