This Industrial PhD project seeks to achieve the following objectives:

The research project aims to develop non-invasive, accurate and reliable tools for the assessment of compliance with the gluten-free diet. Specifically, the design of an immunological method for the determination of gluten immunogenic peptides in urine, with the ELISA technique being the priority option, which is scalable, robust and can also more sensitively determine what is achieved with the immunoassay method. of current lateral flow, to be used in a laboratory environment and that allows its adaptation to automated equipment with the DS2 ELISA Automation System.
