Aptamers are short, functional nucleic acids that bind specifically to a target molecule. Aptamers have become indispensable in modern medicine for therapeutic methods and diagnostics. However, they can also be used for environmental and food analysis.

Our range of services includes:

  • Aptamer-based bionic sensors (aptasensors) with different signalling pathways
    • Optical
    • Electrochemical
    • Mass sensitive
  • As lateral flow assay
  • As microtiter plate assay
