Project Title: A Carbohydrate Diagnostic for the Detection of Norovirus. Acronym: CADDNOR Call: Innovate UK Health Bio-Medical Catalyst Start Date: 01/02/2017 Duration: 12 months Grant Amount: £96,952 Our Role: Bid Writing

The CADDNOR project aims to develop a point of care (POC) diagnostics and carbohydrate-based therapeutics, focused on the detection of Norovirus. The developed assay uses glyconanoparticle technology with potential for replacing molecular technologies and immunodiagnostics – a major shift in analytical approach. The use of carbohydrates instead of antibodies as the recognition mechanism has several advantages including their production using industrial scale, cost-effective chemoenzymatic synthesis which addressed the call topic.
