4th International Conference on Bio-Sensing Technology

Following the success of the first 3 conferences, the 4th International Conference on Bio-Sensing Technology will continue to bring together leaders from industry and academia to exchange and share their experiences, present research results, explore collaborations and to spark new ideas, with the aim of developing new projects and exploiting new technology for bio-sensing applications. 

The conference will take place at the Sheraton Lisboa Hotel, located in one of Lisbon’s most privileged business areas from 10 to 13th of May. 

Our abstract entitled “SCALA as a characterization tool for the nanomechanical detection of biomarkers in human whole blood” has been accepted for poster presentation at the Conference. In our study, SCALA has been used for the successful detection of the cardiac biomarker Troponin I (Tn I, the gold standard myocardial infarction biomarker) directly in human whole blood samples.

In the figure above, we show the nanomechanical (a.) and plasmonic (b.) detection of the biomarker Tn I in human whole blood samples: silicon cantilever before and after incubation with blood and detection antibodies tethered to the gold-nanoparticles.

These promising results open new capabilities for biosensing protocols in human whole blood samples.

Mecwins was established in 2008 with the purpose of developing a proprietary technology for nanomechanical sensing. Mecwins offers an optical platform form MEMS characterization named SCALA using its proprietary technology. SCALA is a complete tool to characterize your devices (cantilevers, bridges, membranes, etc.) in air, liquid and vacuum environments. Importantly, measurement can be taken both in static and dynamic modes. Additionally, SCALA can deliver 3D images with topographic information of your MEMS.
