Paper Abstract

The LiPhos project (EU FP7 Grant Agreement No.: 317916, www.liphos.eu) aims to develop three different biophotonic diagnosis tools (BDTs), based on living photonics, namely: single layer living photonics (SLLP), single cell analysis (SCA); and multi-layer living photonics (MLLP). By Measuring of what we term the Photonic Fingerprint (or PIN), of the cells in such BDTs, should make it is possible to differentiate between healthy and non-healthy cell or tissue states. Moreover, the effect of specific drugs and pro-inflammatory agents could be assessed. This concept is currently being applied to the diagnosis of cardiovascular diseases (CVD).
