Point-of-Care Diagnostic System – soon at your general practice surgery

Lector: Prof. RNDr. Vojtěch Adam, Ph.D

Institution: Brno University of Technology, CEITEC VUT

Field: Advanced Materials and Nanosciences


About the project

My project is aimed to design and develop a point-of-care device for the in vitro diagnostics of tumor diseases. The size of device will be optimal for general practice surgery, where directly at the site of care the rapid actionable results for clinicians will be provided. The device will be easy to manipulate by nurses or doctors. For detection, magnetic particles and chemiluminescent immunoassay will be used. All components for biomarker detection will be included in the specific cartridges.


Why science?

As CTO in my own company, which will focus on design and development of analytical laboratory devices.


What do I like most about Brno

Because of plenty opportunities in research and development for enthusiastic people, as I am.
