Wageningen University & Research is a leading international education and research organization that contributes importantly to the quality of life in the fields of food and health, sustainable agrosystems, inhabitable green space and social changes. The research institutes belonging to “Stichting Wageningen Research” (SWR) provide applied research within Wageningen University & Research to enable the rapid conversion of fundamental knowledge to applications on the market. In the Eurostars project SWR is represented by the group BioSensing & Diagnostics (BSD) from the institute Wageningen Food & Biobased Research (WFBR) having over 25 years of experience in the development of immunoassays. In the BSD group various rapid, simple and cheap (immuno)assay formats have been/are being developed such as one-step microarray lateral flow assays and microarray-ELISAs. In these assays nanoparticles are being used as coloured labels such as carbon and silica to generate the detection signals. The group has a broad experience in ultra low volume dispensing of proteins. BSD has participated / is participating in a great number of national and international (EU-)projects, in all cases in close collaboration with, especially, small and medium-sized companies. From 1992 onwards BSD has been involved in over 20 European collaboration projects such as the FP7 projects SALIANT (SECURITY programme) on rapid diagnostics for explosives, the CAPACITIES project PINVIALEG on lateral flow detection of NASBA and PCR amplicons specific for Legionella, and the HEALTH project MALACTRES that focused on the development of new molecular diagnostic tests for malaria species identification and for the assessment of SNPs.
