The Euroanalysis biannual international conference of the Division of Analytical Chemistry of the European Chemical Societytook place in Geneva, Switzerland, 27 – 31 August, 2023. The 21st edition was jointly organized by the Division of Analytical Sciences of the Swiss Chemical Society (DAS) and the University of Geneva.

RELIANCE partners from Fribourg School of Engineering and Architecture (HEIA-FR) participated in the event and presented the project with a poster entitled “Bio-based antimicrobial peptides for smart response self-disinfected surfaces”. They shared some preliminary results regarding the extraction of antimicrobial peptides (AMPs) from keratin from chicken feathers through the application of various hydrolysis methods. These peptides undergo detailed characterization of their bioactive properties in order to be incorporated in the unique nanoparticles RELIANCE develops. The process will be further optimized for broader porduction and acquisition of fully active AMPs, to be integrated into materials, thus driving advancement in self-disinfecting applications.

Euroanalysis provides a forum for the European Analytical World to discuss the latest developments in analytical sciences. The theme of the 2023 meeting was: Analytical Probing of Complex Systems. It reflects the urgent need to observe chemical changes in complex systems, from materials surfaces, to living cells and ecosystems, in real time and with adequate spatial resolution. The conference is problem-oriented and has an interdisciplinary spirit. It brings together researchers that work in fundamental and applied sciences, but also decision makers and people intimately familiar with the systems of interest. It actively involves people from academia, federal research institutes, industry and regulatory bodies.
