Chip Architectures by Joint Associated Labs for EUropean diagnostics

The objective of the CAJAL4EU project is to develop nanoelectronics-based biosensor technology platforms enabling in-vitro diagnostic test manufacturers to rapidly build a variety of new multi-parameter test applications in a robust, user-friendly and cost-effective way.

Therefore, the main results of this project will be the different technologies developed; sensor technology including bio-chemical functionalisation, microfluidics and related hardware and software drivers. The integrated technology blocks into a generic system solution will be tested in demonstrators to proof integration, cost efficiency and biological application relevance. The project has been performed in close collaboration with end-users and medical companies to realise a valuable impact on the European society and economy.

The CAJAL4EU consortium consists of 25 complementary partners from 8 European countries; with the manpower being equally spread over the different countries. The consortium is industry driven, supported by prestigious universities and institutes.
