The ULTRAPLACAD project (funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme) held its kick off meeting on the 6th of May in Catania, Italy.

The project aims at the development of a compact plasmonic-based device, with integrated microfluidics and functionalized nanostructures, for the detection of DNA, microRNA and tumor autoantibodies cancer biomarkers. Ginolis is a partner in the project that includes multiple industry leaders from across Europe.

“As a company we are actively developing new technologies and we are very excited about the opportunituy to be a part of this innovative project“ says VP of Technology Innovation, Markku Känsäkoski of Ginolis. The ULTRAPLACAD project has a duration of 42 months.
