Maréchal from the Chemistry Dept. and Jofre Ferrer from IBB have been awarded
the second place in the Ideas Generation program from the PRUAB.
1500€, the Celifast project proposes the development of a Point-of-Care biosensor for the rapid
diagnosis of Celiac Disease using a drop of blood. The baseline technology has
already been tested using clinical samples and has shown a sensitivity of 100%.
Its great advantage is giving real time results, thus becoming a faster and less
invasive alternative to the currently available tests for gluten intolerance.
It is hoped that the diagnostic’s Point-of-Care approach will have a positive impact
– specially for the youngest patients – in reducing the future risk of
complications due to a late diagnosis.
