The LPGFS demonstrator developed in the project will detect pathogen bacteria E. Coli in real time. With increasing public recognition of threats from bacteriainduced diseases and their potential outbreak among densely populated communities, an intrinsic, lowcost biosensor device that can perform quick and precise identification of the infection type is in high
demand to respond to such challenging situations and control the
damage those diseases could possibly cause. A lowcost,portable
(to be used in field condition) and high sensitive E. coli detector will
be welcomed on the market.

    The project Consortium puts together an excellent blend of European global players aiming to produce novel technology which will be transferred to the medical equipment industry in the form of beyond state of the art pathogen bacteria detector product and service. Therefore, the success of the project will significantly contribute towards enhancing the European competitiveness since it will help the SMEs in the Consortium to strengthen their position in the market, increase sales and exports, and also significantly advance in the technology against competitors.
This project will bring to the participating SMEs a wide access to the knowledge and technology in order to create a production line of detectors for pathogen bacteria not only E. coli.
