Resumen:
Una pyme irlandesa ha desarrollado un kit de ensayo rápido basado en semiconductores para identificación in situ de especies alimentarias, fraudes alimentarios y organismos genéticamente modificados. Este kit con captura y extracción basado en bolas magnéticas utiliza sondas estándar para la especificidad de referencia y no necesita amplificación. Un sensor complementario de óxido metálico cuenta las bolas magnéticas (número de copias de ADN objetivo). Se buscan socios con el fin de establecer acuerdos de cooperación técnica y joint venture.

Tittle:
Complementary metal oxide semiconductor, semiconductor biosensor deoxyribonucleic acid test-kit for food fraud and genitically modified organisms identification
Summary:
An Irish SME has developed a patent pending semiconductor-based rapid test-kit for on-site food species identification, food-fraud -Y- genetically modified organism testing. It has magnetic-bead based target capture and extraction, and uses standard library probes for gold-standard specificity. No amplification is required. A Complementary metal oxide capacitive sensor counts the magnetic beads (number of target DNA´s). The SME is looking for technology co-operation -Y- joint venture agreements.
Description:
The Irish SME aims to create a world-first 30-minute on-site deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) test kit, for food provenance, thereby eliminating the 2 to 5 day wait for DNA results from a central lab. This is achieved with a novel merging of semiconductor capacitive sensing and molecular biology in a single-use microfluidic disposable test kit. No such solution currently exists. There is no molecular amplification, i.e. no risk of on-site cross-contamination. Standard library probes are used for gold-standard specificity. The technology prototype has 3-orders of magnitude response, enabling qualitative and quantitative DNA detection. The first product version is defined with customers as 8-multiplex, aimed at genetically modified organism (GMO) detection -Y- food-species testing to 0.1% limits.
The testy kits will have significant impact in addressing the huge un-met need for fast on-site DNA food diagnostics. Consumer trust will be significantly increased by on-the-spot ID of food content and GMO´s. The kit will help food processors and retailers eliminate costly quarantines and food recalls, food wastage, risk of reputational damage and loss of sales (e.g. ´horse-burger´ crisis 2013). The kit will also accelerate the uptake of EU Reference Laboratories (EURL) regulations on DNA-testing of food and shell-fish, increasing food safety, and reducing health issues, food fraud and mislabelling.

The SME´s trans-disciplinary team has 30 patents and >100 years experience in semiconductors, molecular biology, microfluidics, venture-capital fundraising, and commercialization success.
