Welcome to the PodiTrodi project

The PodiTrodi project was an European-Brazilian cooperation project with the goal to overcome the draw-backs of current Point-of-Care tests by developing technologies for really integrated (but low-cost) sample preparation. The prototypes developed as proof of concept demonstrator are self-contained device that heterogeneously integrates microsystems (biosensors and microfluidics), and control electronics. The device is controlled by a portable instrument including sensor read-out, human-machine interface, embedded processor and , suitable for point- of-care diagnosis of Chagas' Disease.
