µAQUA: Development of universal microarrays for the evaluation of fresh-water quality based on detection of pathogens and their toxins (simultaneous test of various pathogens - less laborious and time-consuming)
Project start 2011

The aim of this EU-FP7 project is to establish a microarray for the assessment of water quality based on the detection of pathogens and their toxins. MariLim performs sampling in the Baltic Sea catchment area and process the water samples in the laboratory for further studies by the project partners. Partners in this project are the Universities of Camerino, Portsmouth, Paris, Dublin, Belfast, Istanbul and Belfast. In addition, Veolia Environments, the Istituto Superiore di Sanita of Italy, the National Center of Infectious and Parasitic Deseases of Bulgaria and Scienion AG from Berlin are among the partners of MariLim.
