 Project objective

A new disposable sampling device that allows quantitative measurements from Dried Blood Spots (DBS) has been developed with support of the ERC AdG xMEMS. The technology consists of a small microfluidic chip made of laminated structured plastic foils and paper with the specific function to meter and store an exact blood volume as a DBS. The chip can be used directly by a patient to leave a capillary blood sample straight from a finger prick. This simplifies blood sampling, offers comfort for the patient and reduces costs for health care providers. In this project we shall perform activities to: Have a first complete product (proposed within TDM) that works for users and is backed up by clinical test(s). A company is formed, the business plan is worked out in detail and it is ready for a next financing round. IPR strategy has been chosen and patent(s) on blood as well as plasma are secured accordingly. We have worked out and tested a scalable and cost-efficient manufacturing and packaging strategy. We have chosen, prepared and acquired our first paying customer. We are ready to sell and have a plan for how to grow sales for defined product(s).

Are you the coordinator (or a participant) of this project? Plaese send me more information about the "XMEMSDBS" project.

For instance: the website url (it has not provided by EU-opendata yet), the logo, a more detailed description of the project (in plain text as a rtf file or a word file), some pictures (as picture files, not embedded into any word file), twitter account, linkedin page, etc.

Send me an  email ( and I put them in your project's page as son as possible.

Thanks. And then put a link of this page into your project's website.
