What is the NANO-MUBIOP project?

The Human Papillomavirus (HPV) is responsible for cervix cancer or gene mutations and consequent hereditary diseases. The determination of HPV types has clinical-diagnostic value and is an important factor in the assessment of risk of cancer development in patients who exhibit evidence of HPV infection. NANO-MUBIOP is an EU funded research project that means Enhanced sensitivity Nanotechnology-based Multiplexed Bioassay Platform for diagnostic applications. The project proposes a strategy satisfying the need for the development of a cheap, fast and patient-friendly diagnostic tool able to detect all possible HPV infections.

Who is involved?

The project involved eight European partners coming from 5 European Countries (Italy, France, Ireland, Hungary and UK) working together to develop the new platform for bio-targets detection. In order to allow a proper exploitation of the project results, a transnational consortium of 3 research intensive SMEs, representing a complete supply chain, complemented by 5 Research Centres, to make available the required knowledge to achieve the challenging S&T objectives, has been created. The project is coordinated by Hospitex Diagnostics srl, an international engineering, manufacturing and trading company working in the medical diagnostics field.
