O Centro de Estudos Sociais (CES) da Universidade de Coimbra (UC) integra o novo projeto de investigação ‘BIOASSEMBLER – Integrando a montagem bio-inspirada na tecnologia de fabrico de semicondutores para biossensores’, que procura promover a integração das Ciências Sociais e Humanidade no desenvolvimento de tecnologias inovadoras no fabrico de microssensores e na transformação sustentável deste sector.
Bio-intelligent micromanufacturing paves the way for new biosensors – application areas include health, food and environmental monitoring
Microelectromechanical sensors are essential components in all walks of life. However, bringing biospecific elements into miniaturized sensors has been a challenge, obstructing the development of bioanalytical applications. A new European project aims to change this by developing key enabling technologies for producing silicon-based multiplexed biosensors rapidly and cost-effectively. This could transform semiconductor-based biosensor industries in Europe.
Biomensio to develop novel, cost-effective methods for wafer scale biofunctionalisation in BioAssembler project
BIOASSEMBLER is a new project funded by the European Union that promotes the development of innovative technologies in microsensor manufacturing and the sustainable transformation of this sector in Europe.
Surely you have, or know someone that has, a smartphone that can tell you how many hours you’ve slept or how many steps you’ve taken during the day. But did you know that this information is given by very small sensors, probably produced outside Europe?
