From (bio)sensors to diagnostics: challenges and pitfalls

Dr. Nicolas Vergauwe

Biocartis, Belgium

This talk will highlight the enormous potential (bio)sensors offers for diagnostic applications in the field of high-precision medicine. Yet, bringing a novel diagnostic device to the market holds several challenges which will be addressed during this talk. Topics such as clinical sample types, instrument robustness and performance will be addressed. Identifying these pitfalls is essential when bringing groundbreaking research to the clinic.

Brief Bio:

Nicolas Vergauwe graduated as Bioscience Engineer in 2007 at KU Leuven. He obtained his PhD in Bioscience Engineering at KU Leuven for studying the use of digital microfluidics for medical point-of-care applications.
Nicolas joined Biocartis in 2012 where he was involved in several research projects related to the fields of sepsis, multiplexed immunoassay detection and fully automated molecular diagnostics. During this period he came into contact with a wide variety of technologies, both from an engineering and biochemical perspective. Today, his research group works on new concepts and technologies to extend the possibilities of Idylla, Biocartis’ fully automated, real-time PCR based molecular diagnostics system. The most challenging part for his team is to bridge the gap between state-of-the-art technology and the complexity of biological samples.
