DESCRIPTION

The group is focused in DNA based analysis, developing Lab on a chip and miniaturized solutions based on the use of nanoparticles, microfluidics and molecular biology techniques for detection biological risk (pathogens, allergens, toxins) in food matrices and to assess food authenticity.

RESEARCH LINES

  • Detection and quantification of Food risks
  • Assessment of food authenticity

FUNDED PROJECTS

SF4SF Smart Factoy for Safe Foods

 

Project funded by CDTI, Ministry of Industry of Spain.

The project aims the integration of emerging technologies for the detection, removal and food risk management in food processing plants. The role of the group is to develop detectors based on DNA detection for gluten and Listeria monocitogenes in fish products.
