Celifast Project receives the second prize in the Ideas Generation Program
Monday, 02 December 2013
The team composed of researchers María Isabel Pividori, Ona Illa and Jean-Didier Maréchal from the Chemistry Dept. and Jofre Ferrer from IBB have been awarded the second place in the Ideas Generation program from the PRUAB.

Awarded with 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.
