POLITO-DC1: BioChip

Supervisors: Distinguished Prof. Arnan Mitchell (RMIT) and Associate Prof. Matteo Cocuzza (POLITO)  and Cecilia Pederzolli (FBK)

Project 1: Lab-on-a-chip for early detection of Sars COV2

This project focuses on the development of a paper-based lateral flow device for SARS-CoV-2 detection. Paper-based lateral flow assays are among the most widely used biosensing platforms for point-of-care testing thanks to their simplicity, convenience and speed. The device will be developed considering the naked eye reading of the assay in combination with advanced nanotechnology strategies for signal amplification to ensure high sensitivity. 

 

Project 2: Organ-on-a-chip model with integrated biosensors

The project focus in the development of 3D artificial devices, called Organ-on-Chip, in polymeric material capable of reproducing the main functional units of entire living organs for the study of oncological diseases and to be used as a platform for the development and validation of innovative 3D solutions for personalized medicine (scaffold). This Organ on a chip platform could be integrated with biosensors for specific biomarkers detection. 

 

Project 3: Rapid diagnostic test for SARS-CoV-2 detection

This project focuses on the development of a paper-based lateral flow device for SARS-CoV-2 detection. Paper-based lateral flow assays are among the most widely used biosensing platforms for point-of-care testing thanks to their simplicity, convenience and speed. The device will be developed considering the naked eye reading of the assay in combination with advanced nanotechnology strategies for signal amplification to ensure high sensitivity.
