Polymer Microsystems for Medical Diagnostics


Organisation profile

The PolyMeDiag group is focusing on the development of inexpensive and disposable all-polymer microdevices for Point-of-Care medical diagnostics.

The devices will separate and differentially detect chemicals and infectious agents from body fluids based on microfluidics systems employing micro-patterned and functionalized conductive polymers for electrochemical detection. 

The PolyMeDiag group is a multidisciplinary research team having experiences in biophysics, medico-technology, microfluidics and chemistry, device fabrication techniques, surface characterization and functionalization and electrochemical detection methods.

The current research projects are:

  •  “Virus fishing”: A microchannel-based device to facilitate differential attachment of virus particles on antibody-coated conductive polymer microelectrodes (funded by Danish Agency for Science Technology and Innovation)
  • Aptamer functionalized conductive polymer electrodes for virus detection (financed by DTU)
  • Microfluidics based separation and characterization of misfolded amyloid peptide from cerebrospinal fluid for early detection of Alzheimer’s disease (in collaboration with Statens Serum Institut, funded by Danish Agency for Science Technology and Innovation)
  • Separation and characterization of blood microparticles by nanotechnological methods for diagnosis of autoimmune diseases (in collaboration with Statens Serum Institut)
