We want to develop and validate an ammonium biosensor for the future home application of patients, which will make a faster detection of episodes of hyperammonemia and hyperphenylalaninemia, with the establishment of early corrective measures.

This project was born from the PKU and OTHER HEREDITARY METABOLIC DISORDERS FOUNDATION together with the Hereditary Metabolic Diseases laboratory of the Sant Joan de Déu Hospital, led by Dr. Rafael Artuch, and together with the Autonomous University of Barcelona.

This innovation will allow to significantly improve the control and study of those affected, it will help families who live with this day to day to feel calmer and safer, but above all it will allow them to dedicate themselves more to what really matters: enjoying each instant with their children so they can fulfill their dreams without strings attached.
