Coordinated by the University of Bologna, the new European project will develop portable devices with a level of sensitivity equal or higher than that of molecular PCR swabs, and with much faster results. Eclipse aims to design and produce a nanobiotechnological platform for the detection of pathogens that is both economical, usable even by non-expert personnel and with a high level of sensitivity and reliability.

ECLIPSE Kick-off Meeting

ECLIPSE Kick-off Meeting was held in Bologna (Italy) last 3-4 May 2022, hosted by the University of Bologna in the charming and recently restored Palazzo Malvezzi (Sala Armi and Sala Feste).

The Kick-Off Meeting brought together all members of the consortium and it has provided an opportunity for an update on the main objective of the project and the launching of initial actions.

The key point have been set, the Consortium is ready to achieve the project goals.
