Immunoassays detect lowest concentrations of the target molecule in complex biological media like blood without sample pretreatment. This specific information is often the basis for decisions regarding the correct therapy, criminal law measures (e.g. drug offences) or product safety (e.g. food controls).
The »Biomimetic Functional Materials« group develops rapid homogeneous tests with inexpensive electrochemical readout and highly sensitive fluorescence-based assays. Our know-how are on-invasively obtained samples, especially saliva. Based on our patented ultra-fast redox quenching immunoassay with an assay duration of only 15 seconds, we offer developments for any protein, peptide and small molecule analyte. In this respect, we also offer further consulting in the search for antibody producers, the chemical synthesis of bioconjugates, up to the development of concepts for customized sampling modules, disposables and readout systems.
