POC Molecular IVDs generating actionable information in support of improving clinical management of UTIs
A simple (hand-winded) clockwork assay
Point of care tests for urinary tract infections aimed for primary care should be very simple and cost-effective. In this project, the candidate will develop a simple (hand-winded) clockwork mechanism, making use of SlipChip technology that sequentially allows positioning over a stationary photodetector, heating zones and magnet(s) for bead actuation. The entire device will be produced using low-cost surface mimicking OSTE+ technology allowing low-cost, high-throughput single-step manufacturing. The bioassay developed by ESR5 will be integrated in a digital PCR format in collaboration with KULeuven.
