The latest LEPABE Talk (June 25th) had PhD student Ricardo Oliveira presenting the NAM4Covid19 initiative 💡. This project, which counts with the participation of the DelNAM team, proposes a solution which allows a faster detection of SARS-CoV-2 🕒, while also avoiding the need for specialized technicians 👨🔬 and equipment. #NAM4COVID19 #Research
Project Manager Rita Santos will be a speaker 📢 and moderator in the upcoming virtual conference on Bionano Innovation, to be held on June 6th, 2020. Learn more about these sessions and register from anywhere in the world 🌍 via BioNano-20.
The latest Biofilm 🦠 Engineering Lab (BEL) meeting happened last week on the 27th of May, via videoconference 📹. The group learned more about the latest evaluation of LEPABE and shared experiences and doubts regarding the ongoing return to the laboratories 👨🔬. #BEL #LEPABE
LEPABE , INIAV and INSA are collaborating to develop a “Nucleic acid mimic lateral flow assay (NAM-LFA) for the detection of SARS-CoV-2”. This project was approved in the FCT special call RESEARCH 4 COVID-19. Towards the development of this solution and while assuring everyone’s safety and well-being, we have met last week via videoconference, in order to define […]
