The result of the NANOBE –project will be an integrated measurement platform for real-time monitoring of industrial bioprocesses. This versatile platform will enable simultaneous analysis of dozens of analytes, including individual cells, product profiles and intracellular biomarkers. The platform will be composed of multiple 'lab-on-chip ' modules. Together, these modules will measure a broad range of analyte types, including small molecules, proteins, enzymes, metabolites, specific mRNAs and entire cells. 

The measurement platform will be a significant improvement in terms of automation, analysis time, identification and sensitivity. The analysis platform will permit real-time feedback control of large-scale production processes, screening of production organisms and optimisation of reaction conditions. The tool will improve process productivity, product quality and accelerate development of production organisms for applications in industrial biotechnology.

The platform is designed to be flexible so that it can be applied either as a multiplex platform system to monitoring multiple analytes, or as individual device components for analysis of specific compounds. The versatile measurement tool will require only a change in method (e.g. a change of reagents or analysis conditions) to enable the measurement of a new analyte.
