Healthcare by biosensor measurements and networking

Healthcare by biosensor measurements and networking

Objective

Diagnostics at hospitals is based either on large-scale automated equipment or ELISA techniques based on bioassays which are not suitable for bedside and emergency medicine. Therefore CARE-MAN will provide a validated, intelligent, next-generation diagnostic device and system based on biosensor technology with new, radically enhanced detection capabilities and integrated sample-handling to address the most common diagnostic problems in the EU like cardiovascular disease, coagulation disorders, chronic/acute inflammation, cancer, thyroid disorders.

The integration of eHealth capabilities is achieved through networking functions and interfaces to current and future medical data systems. To follow the requirements of the variety of serious diseases, modules of sample preparation, fluidics, assay formats and optical and electrochemoluminescent transduction principles will be integrated in a new modular multi-analyte technological system in cooperation with diagnostic and IT companies.

The system will reduce sample volumes and improve limit of detection, make the point-of-care diagnostics fast, easy to handle and cost-effective and will provide an anticipating diagnostic help by networking and information technology. Hospitals are involved in the validation process taking into account the differences in healthcare and provide input to improve the instrumentation. Working biosensing systems are modified to allow development of immunoassay strategies from the start and give chance to improve instrumental setups even in the first period. Later, system integration will not only set up a technological modular system for hospitals but also for family doctors and in future, for bedside home surveillance.

The involvement of legislatory bodies and representatives of health insurances in an advisory board and the complementary expertise of the partners govern the success and the validity of the project.
