The applications of nanoscience and technology to medicine will profit patients by offering:
Rapid advances in fields such as microelectronics, microfluidics, microsensors and biocompatible materials allow for the elaboration of implantable biodevices such as Lab-on-Chip and the Point-of-Care devices.
NanoDiagnostic make use of the unique properties of nanoparticles to develop highly sensitive diagnostic and molecular detection tools.
Our scientists have developed multiple strategies for the adequate conjugation of
to nanoparticles for use in molecular assays and biosensing devices.
We are also working on designing a variety of biosensors for the rapid, sensitive detection of pathogens using the unique physical properties of nanoparticles and surface plasmon resonance technology.
