The Biosensors Group at IMBB-FORTH (biosensorslab-forth.gr), headed by Prof. E. Gizeli, during the last five years has produced innovative research in the areas of point-ofcare diagnostics and DNA analysis with emphasis in healthcare and agro/food safety. This research, which has received three innovation awards in national and international competitions, is now under the process of becoming commercial through the creation of a start-up company. Initial funding secured for this purpose comes from Patras Science Park through the “Proof-of-Concept” award.
The company is currently discussing with future end-users including Greek and multinational companies, with interest in pathogen analysis. The aim is to bring the first product to the market in the first quarter of 2020.
