The goal of the SensApp FET-Open project is to develop an innovative super-sensor that will be able to detect Alzheimer?s disease (AD) biomarkers (?-amyloid, Tau and pTAU) in peripheral blood. Considering that nowadays an accurate diagnosis of AD requires the highly invasive withdrawal and analysis of cerebrospinal fluid, SensApp will represent a breakthrough in the field of AD diagnosis thanks to the ability to detect the early stage of the disease by a simple blood collection. We call Droplet-Split-and-Stack (DSS) the new technology that will emerge from SensApp. The achievement of SensApp goal is enabled by the interdisciplinary cooperation between different research institutions and one company involved in the key fields of the project, Vrije Universiteit Brussels, VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland, University of Linz, Ginolis Ltd, IRCCS Centre ?Bonino Pulejo?, under the coordination of CNR-Institute of Applied Sciences and Intelligent Systems. This communication will illustrate the progress of the activities.
