Scenario-oriented emergency diagnostics for field deployment (S.O.N.D.E.)

The goal of the S.O.N.D.E. research project is the development of mobile, fully integrated diagnostics systems for the detection of pathogens and B-agents (because analysis methods being using currently are frequently based on stationary analysis devices). The relevant investigations are both time-consuming and inflexible.

The focus of the S.O.N.D.E. project is the development of a diagnostics system for field deployment, whereby the sample is to be prepared and analyzed fully automatically with a portable device. A microfluidic single-use cartridge is used as the basis for sample preparation, in which all reagents required for the analysis are pre-stored. This cartridge, based on peel technique, is to be inserted into a mobile base device.
