EMPIREO commitment to research aimed at creation of revolutionary new methods of detection.

Our team has extensive experience in basic-clinical research as well as in detection of biomolecules and markers of different pathologies.

EMPIREO is a signatory of the Cosce proposal for transparency on the use of animals in scientific experimentation in Spain.

This work is taking shape in numerous publications in various international journals:
