Scopul principal al proiectului

Development and development of prototypes of fluorescence detection microbiosensors based on Förster resonance energy transfer (FRET) for fast and sensitive detection of whole blood samples of 4 important cardiac markers in acute myocardial infarction (AMI) using an analyzer with fluorescence detection.

General objectives of the project

O1. Development, manufacture and testing of microbiosensors for the determination with high sensitivity of 4 important cardiac markers in the diagnosis of AMI: hFABP, CK-MB, myoglobin, troponin ITC complex;
O2. Connecting applied research and technological progress in Romania to the evolution and requirements of the national and international socio-economic environment;
O3. Development of partnerships between the research environment and the private environment;
O4. Stimulating the growth of private sector spending on research and development, both for their own activities and for collaboration with research organizations;
O5. Strengthening the innovation capacity of enterprises and consolidating their contribution to the creation of new products (microbiosensors for in vitro diagnostics) / technologies (microbiosensors manufacturing) with the potential for commercial exploitation on the domestic and international market;
