Conference DEMO TEST
Photonic lab-on-a-chip nanobiosensors for early diagnostics at the point-of-car – Presented by Laura M. Lechuga, Catalan Institute of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology (ICN2) at the 19th edition European Conference on Integrated Optics, which takes place on 3 – 5 April 2017 at Eindhoven University of Technology, Blauwe Zaal in Eindhoven, The Netherlands.
Motivated by potential benefits such as sensor user-friendly, multiplexing capabilities and high sensitivities,nanophotonic lab-on-chip biosensors have profiled themselves as an excellent alternative to traditional analytical techniques. Modern diagnostics is demanding novel analytical tools that could enable quick, accurate, sensitive, reliable and cost-effective results so that appropriate treatments can be implemented in time, leading to improved outcomes. The main objective of our research is to achieve such ultrasensitive platforms for label-free analysis using nanophotonic technologies and custom-designed biofunctionalization protocols, accomplishing the requirements of disposability and portability. We are using innovative designs of nanophotonic biosensors based silicon photonics technology (nanointerferometers) and full microfluidics lab-on-chip integration.
