Meet our partner – Paperdrop Diagnostics
MARVEL project consortium consists of 7 partners (CNR-SCITEC, CNR-ITM, Istituto Cardiocentro Ticino, Vita-Salute San Raffaele University, HansaBioMed Life Sciences, Paperdrop Diagnostics, Amires) and each of them provides unique competence and complementary expertise, that collectively cover the whole spectrum of skills required for the development of a multifaceted and versatile platform enabling scalable Extracellular Vesicles (EVs) isolation in various contexts of EVs research and deployment, in diagnostics and therapy. Today, we would like to introduce one of our partners, Paperdrop Diagnostics. They are focusing on the development of rapid diagnostic tests with improved sensitivity and specificity based on paper microfluidics, in particular on lateral flow immunoassays, similar to COVID19 and pregnancy tests. Paperdrop Diagnostics tests are a cheap and easy-to-use tool that requires just a single drop of a patient’s fluid (e.g. blood) to carry out the test using a paper sensor.
