The overall scientific objective of the project is to develop from concept a generic capacitance based immunodetection analyser for GMO related proteins. CP4-syntheses and Cry (A) b-protein are employed as relevant model targets. These proteins correspond to "RR-Soy" and "Bt-Maize" Gomes, respectively. This proposed immunodetection method bears inherent advantages and the analyser to be developed will be easily adapted to new Gomes, as the whole technology that will be developed can be used for any new GMO, provided that the corresponding antibody is available. There are four types of project deliverables - production of monoclonal antibodies and Fib related proteins, development of capacitance-based immunosensors (GMO immunities), development of ELISA protocols and hardware/software products
