Laboratory of sensing techniques

Nowadays, analytical techniques do not benefit only from expensive benchtop devices which are suitable for laboratory use only. Technological progress enables to integrate several simple elements such as miniaturized electrodes, LED diodes, computers, and other necessary hardware platforms into simple and cheap bioanalytical devices. The key tools in this field are 3D printing and specially designed micro and nanoscale particles.

The mission of laboratory is design and fabrication of benchtop and/or portable device which can be controlled by Bluetooth of cell phones. All the platforms are built to be fully operated and tested in laboratory but as another evolution step some of them could be applicable on the site of use meets the requirements for Point of Care Testing (POCT).
