O mém projektu
The project focuses on the development of Organic Electro-Chemical transistors as biosensors for assessment drug induced cytotoxicity of chemicals and drugs on cardiac cells. The approach of this project is to utilize the latest achievements of organic and molecular electronics in the biological area. To develop a device which will be able to monitor electrophysiological activity of cardiac cells with sufficient accuracy, sensitivity and stability. Which will hopefully lead to new competitive commercially available technology useful in molecular and cell biology, clinical diagnostics, toxicology, pharmacology and drug screening, environmental monitoring and biological warfare agent field.
