Biosensor group


WELCOME to the MeBioS-Biosensor group of Prof. Jeroen Lammertyn! Our group was founded in 2005 within the MeBioS division and currently counts 5 postdocs and 15 PhD students. Its fundamental research activities focus on the development of novel bio-molecular detection concepts and miniaturized analysis systems. The applications span a broad range of sectors including medical and food diagnostics. The MeBioS-Biosensor group closely follows the emerging field of biosensing and is active in the following domains (i) Bio-assay development (e.g., aptamers, biofunctionalized nanomaterials), (ii) Optical sensors (e.g., fiber optic SPR sensors) (iii) Microfluidics (e.g., lab-on-a-chip technology).
