Research funding

Research & development at EUROIMMUN is supported by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF). At our branch in Dassow (Mecklenburg-Vorpommern) a project is funded which focuses on peptide-based diagnoses of food allergies.

The central task of this project is the identification of molecular target structures of the allergy-specific antibodies based on clinically characterised patient sera. These amino acid sequences are then applied as antigens in a novel serological test system for the diagnosis of food allergies. Differentiation, prognosis and therapy of food allergies shall be helped by the characterisation of the epitopes. The peptide-based multiparameter test shall enable diagnosis of severe symptoms and replace risky provocation tests.

The project EUROPathology System (EPS) encompasses the development of new methodical approaches for histopathology. EPS will incorporate all important steps from production of tissue sections to evaluation and documentation of results. The system will be composed of modules designed for each phase of the workflow, from sample entry to issuing and archiving of results.
