This unit works on the development of molecular diagnostic test systems for the sectors food and medicine / clinical practice. In the first place, a novel lab-on-a-chip diagnostic platform is implemented on the basis of functionalized magnetic particles. An additional focus of this unit is on the development of test strip-based rapid tests, the characterization of nucleic acid-binding proteins and the evaluation of the toxic potential of industrial nanomaterials.
