HIGHLY SENSITIVE AND SPECIFIC LOW-COST LAB-ON-A-CHIP SYSTEM FOR LYME DISEASE DIAGNOSIS
 

The The aim of HILYSENS project is formed by a Pan-European consortium composed by 4 SMEs and 3 RTD performers of 6 different Member States of the European Union. SME partners have come together to provide a balanced match of technological skills, industrial objectives, geographical representation, synergistic business interests and non-competitive positions related to the prospective outputs of the RTD performers. Together the SME partners are capable of forming a suitable vehicle for post project development, marketing, and product support, but lack the capabilities and necessary dedication to perform the multidisciplinary research required to fully develop the system. For these reasons RTD Performers have been chosen on the basis of their expertise, resources and complementary capabilities, combining interdisciplinary activities from academic and industrial sources, and interfacing medical research with basic science research, biotechnology and physics.
