FET Open projects are characterised for being based on ground breaking ideas that may lead to new technology being generated
The DeDNAed initiative aims to develop a new analytical platform based on the assembly of sensor elements. DNA origami is used, allowing for the precise location of these sensors with nanometric resolution, required for a better detection by surface-improved Raman spectroscopy. TECNALIA's platform will be based on the assembly and integration of detection elements (transducer and bioreceptor) via origam DNA.
DNA origami is used as a “nano plate” to accurately control the position of these elements and, therefore, the architecture of the sensor on a nanometric scale.
DeDNAed aims to develop an innovative platform of biosensors, whose advantages and benefits include sensitivity, versatility and being ultra-fast through an optical approach.
FET Open projects are characterised for being based on ground breaking ideas that may lead to new technology being generated, including a highly inter-disciplinary scientific approach and stimulate the participation of young researchers and high tech SMEs. Prestigious international universities and technology centres participate in the projects.
