AcronymLABCHIP

Proposal titleDIAGNOSTICS LAB ON A CHIP

AbstractThe problem is increasing demand on healthcare systems, for reasons including the ageing

European population and the availability of more diagnostic tests due to the human

genome project. For this a rapid, cost effective solution is required. We propose to develop

a diagnostics lab on a chip. LabChip will greatly accelerate the diagnostics process by

miniaturisation and increased detection sensitivity by integrating multiplex molecular

biology with dielectrophoresis, Brownian ratchets and micro electro mechanical systems.

This will allow several genetic tests to be conducted at the point of care. Cooperative

research across Europe will enable this, gathering skills and reflecting healthcare in

different member states. The deliverable will be a working chip for chosen diseases ( e.g.

salmonella) ready for validation and legislative approval. The technology will then be

applied to other diagnostics.
