Development of a multiplexed, point-of-care, electrochemical biosensor for the quantitative detection of up to five diagnostic (HRP2 and LDH) and prognostic (ANG1, ANG2 and sTREM) malaria biomarkers.

G_SensMalaria project aims to develop electrochemical aptamer-based (EAB) sensors using graphene-based printed inks. The use of EAB sensors allows to quantify biomarkers in less than five minutes, directly in undiluted blood.

This is a unique technology that combines the properties of point-of-care sensors (speed and ease of use) with those of laboratory-based ones (quantification).

Eurecat’s Functional Printing and Embedded Devices Unit is the responsible for the development of the portable potentiostat reader, capable to quantify the signal from five different working electrode and send the results wirelessly to a smartphone.

G_SensMalaria is a project promoted by GraphenicaLab, ISGlobal and Eurecat.
