“New developments and applications of a device for the detection of pathogenic bacteria by plasmonic resonance”



Leader: Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas (CSIC) – Instituto de Agrobiotecnología (IdAB)

Partner: Centro Nacional de Tecnología y Seguridad Alimentaria (CNTA)

Partner: Instituto Navarro de Tecnologías e Infraestructuras Agroalimentarias (INTIA)


The project objective is:

  • Bring ti the markets previous project Au-NP developments for  Acercar al mercado los dispositivos de Au-NP desarrollados en el proyecto anterior para la detección de nucleases of S. aureus and Salmonella, by standardizing the preparation of different food samples
  • Develop new Au-Np devices for the quick, simple and inexpensive detection of Listeria monocytogenes, Campylobacter and certain strains of E. coli of interest to both the food industry and primary production.

In addition, BACTOPLUS will obtain novel and of great interest to the food and livestock sectors, on circulating pathogens and sustainable control measures in indigenous Latxa sheep’s milk used to produce Idiazábal and Roncal cheeses.


”This project has been funded by the Government of Navarra through the call for aid to Technological Centers and Research and knowledge dissemination agencies for  R&D projects 2020”
