poseidon - 3rd technical committee meeting at uppsala university



On June 30th and July 1st Uppsala University will host the 3rd Technical Committee Meeting of POSEIDON Project (Plasmonic-based autOmated lab-on-chip SEnsor for the rapid In-situ Detection of LegiONella).


The project
The aim of the project is to develop a SPR-based biosensing platform for the detection of L. pneumophila bacteria, with high sensitivity and high specificity, translating the results obtained as experimental proof of concept into an operating automated prototype usable in industrially relevant settings and by untrained personnel. 

The size of the device should allow samples to be analyzed at the point of need rather than in a separate laboratory, allowing reduction of cost per single measurement and increase in throughput.
