Research output: Book/ReportReport


The BioFace project aims to develop new tailored sensing surfaces to be used in printable biosensors. Engineered, extremely stable avidins are the ideal biomolecules to obtain sensing material that is thermally and chemically resistant and apt for applications in the biosensing field. Through covalent linkage or by acting as intermediates, functionalised polymers allow efficient immobilisation of the tailored avidins, which are printed on the sensor chip substrate. The developed materials can be used in bioanalytical devices in the field of diagnostics, drug research and life science research.
