:Electronic systems for nano-sized biological particle detectionAbstract:
The main research activity of my PhD is linked to the project READy (REgionAle Network for Development of Rapid Diagnostic Methods for Emerging Epidemics and Bio-Emergencies) aiming to develop and produce new adaptable diagnostic solution for emerging infectious diseases. Specifically, the goal is the development of a new lab-on-chip platform for rapid, low cost, fast production (for emergencies that require extensive screening of populations at risk) and applicable in decentralized contexts with poor infrastructures. Our contribution is on the realization of a device based on Electrochemical Impedance Spectroscopy. The nanometer biological target to be identified is linked to a bigger structure with electrical properties that can be easily identified with respect to the surrounding environment.
