Award Amount: $296,000.00
 

Abstract:

The long-term goal of this program is to develop a diagnostic platform based on affordable, disposable electrochemical sensors that will be accurate, sensitive, easy to use, quantitative and suitable for high volume testing. The assay system will be portable with a handheld reader and will be applied initially to the detection of GMOs in plants and plant products. The specific phase II objectives are to increase assay sensitivity to exceed current strip test and ELISA technology, to reduce overall assay time to 15 minutes or less, to reduce the number of assay steps and to provide high throughput capability.
