Description

SLIC was funded by the 6th Framework Programme for Research and Technological Development (FP6) and was one of the first projects coordinated by a Swiss partner. The Geneva SME Ayanda Biosystems S.A. guided the six partners through the project. The aim was to develop a biosensor-based device for molecular diagnostics for application in clinical microbiology.

Until then, the technologies had either technical limitations, were expensive or required high skilled personnel and heavy infrastructure. Especially in developing countries this is a serious issue. The developed chip is able to recognise, identify and quantify the bacteria on one single device. The consortium has filed in a patent.
