Flagship 3: Sensor Systems for the Detection and Identification of Bacteria

Flagship 3 aims to develop sensor systems to detect and identify bacterial pathogens, including Clostridium difficile, MRSA and VRE (Vancomycin Resistant Enterococci).

Mobile diagnostics will be developed for use in GP surgeries and care homes, taking advantage of new biomarker discovery tools to guide the development of a variety of capture molecules.
