Wafer-scale, fully automated solid-state nanopore fabrication for biomolecular sensing

Project description

Innovative solid-state nanopore fabrication for single-molecule analysis

Nanopore-based sensors are innovative tools for single-molecule analysis of nucleic acids, proteins, glycans and other biomolecules that have an essential role in life and healthcare, including sensing COVID-19 RNAs and protein biomarkers. Presently, solid-state nanopore (ssNP) fabrication costs and instrumentation represent an obstacle to the broad adoption of ssNP sensing in biomedical research labs and industry. The EU-funded OptiPore project aims to apply a proprietary optical method to create nanoscale apertures in thin films. The objective is to design, construct, test and commercialise an autonomous high-throughput laser-based drilling apparatus, reducing current ssNP fabrication costs and creating opportunities for accessible ssNP applications.
