Project: Aptamer-FET based Diagnostic Platform for rapid Detection of Antibiotic Resistant Bacteria

Acronym AFETAR (Reference Number: 113397)
Duration 31/10/2019 - 02/11/2022
Project Topic Antibiotic resistance is rising to dangerously high levels in all parts of the world. New resistance mechanisms are emerging and spreading globally, threatening our ability to treat common infectious diseases. AFETAR aims to market an innovative Aptamer-FET based biosensor for rapid detection of antibiotic resistant bacteria in patients for clinical use. Our biosensor will be superior to conventional detection methods by combining high-sensitivity, rapid detection, cost-effectiveness, usability.
