RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT
Our inception was triggered in 2010 by scientists from the Group of Optics, Photonics & Biophotonics of the Universidad Politécnica de Madrid. The group has a strong trajectory of publishing cutting-edge research in Biophotonics and is one of the most prolific groups within the Center of Biomedical Technology of the university. Up to this day, we have maintained a very strong link with them and most of our basic research is sourced from this group. We also collaborate on several development projects either as joint partners or having them as a preferred supplier.
BiOD is the lead partner for the read-out hardware and fully responsible for coordinating the commercial exploitation of the AllerScreening platform.
BiOD is participating in the design and integration of the different modules within the Chemical Detection Unit (CDU) up to the feasibility study for the final user. It includes the installation of the first CDU prototype and fabrication of the chip exchanging mechanism.
The role of BiOD in this project is the optimization of the readout platform for its application in the field of allergy detection, equipping it with the necessary multiplexing capability through an automation system.
