Project description:
SABIO is a multidisciplinary project involving the emerging fields of micro-nano technology, photonics, fluidics and bio-chemistry, targeting to contribute to the development of intelligent diagnosis for the healthcare of the future. SABIO will address this objective through the demonstration of a compact polymer-based and silicon-based CMOS-compatible micro-nano system. It integrates optical biosensors for label-free biomolecular recognition based on a novel photonic structure named slot-waveguide with immobilised biomolecular receptors on its surface.
