The aim of the project is to develop several innovative diagnostic technologies within the framework of industrial research. First, it is intended to develop a method for prenatal diagnosis of more common trisomies and hereditary diseases using a blood sample of the mother. Second, it is intended to develop novel methods for multiplex detection of several antibodies within blood sample. All developed methods and technologies shall be suitable for diagnostic purposes.
