Institut Pasteur LuLISA project
Institut Pasteur LuLISA project

At the center of the Institut Pasteur International Network, an international cooperative network for public health, Institut Pasteur in Paris develops numerous international projects in partnership with the leading international scientific bodies. The LuLISA project led by Institut Pasteur and supported by the Roquette Foundation will facilitate large-scale deployment of this diagnostic solution.

The LuLISA project (Luciferase-Linked Immunosorbent Assay) aims to develop a quick, accessible method for general practitioners to diagnose various food allergies using a few drops of blood.
This method is based on a new generation of markers, the luciferases, which give off signals that are thousands of times more intense than those produced by enzymes in ordinary diagnoses.

In the long term, the LuLISA project will also enable identifying allergies so that allergic patients can be informed more quickly, so that an appropriate treatment can be proposed and so that the risks tied to allergies encountered during hospitalization can be limited.

This method will be quicker, safer for patients and available at a lower cost. 

In the current context, Institut Pasteur has also adapted the project to track the progress of collective immunity against Covid-19.
