Chair/bedside diagnosis of oral and respiratory tract infections, and identification of antibiotic resistances for personalised monitoring and treatment
The end of an era, opening the doors to a more optimistic future in diagnostics
The DIAGORAS project came to an end on 31.05.2019, after 48 months of lifetime.
Project objectives were achieved spanning the entire value chain of: sample handling, nucleic acid assays, protein assays, microfluidic integration and manufacturing, readout equipment, IT analysis and reporting interface, as well as validation with reference and clinical samples. Furthermore, numerous dissemination actions promoted the project, which ended with noteworthy exploitation potentials. In addition, new, unplanned developments were initiated, opening the way for future projects and collaborations in the fields of oral and respiratory tract infections. All partners are greatly acknowledged for their high quality work, commitment, dedication and excellent collaborative spirit!
The DIAGORAS project develops a device that will allow on-site, rapid and accurate prescription of personalized treatment procedures for respiratory and oral infections.
SPEEDING UP THE TIME OF DIAGNOSTIC
by providing interpretable results within 1 hour
IMPROVING ANTIBIOTIC USE
by identifying the causative agent, either virus or bacterium
LIGHTENING THE BURDEN OF THE HEALTHCARE SYSTEM
by offering low costs compared to existing diagnostic tools and methods
REDUCING PATIENT MORBIDITY
by allowing rapid and accurate Point-of-Care infectious disease diagnostics
DIAGORAS intends to bring disruptive changes in the current practice of the medical field.
