The objectives of this study, co-directed by Russian Federation and the United States, are

  • To develop highly sensitive technology and instrumentation for direct biochemical analysis of liquids and gases utilizing a novel sensor system.
  • To optimize conditions for binging of target molecules via surface chemistry development
  • To design and build the devices with remote control capable of highly sensitive detecting of specific substances in gas media or in liquids such as human blood as well as other physiological liquids.
  • To involve end-users in the commercialization of the technology for biochemical control of a human health.
