Cell-based assays are of enormous importance in anti-viral drug discovery and research on vaccines against viral infections. Therefore, the inhibition of the virus-induced cytopathic effect due to neutralizing antibodies or antiviral agents comprise to the commonly utilized methods. The impedance spectroscopy with commercial platforms demonstrated the principal applicability of this technique for the mentioned applications in well plate format. But costs of disposable components of these systems are high due to the used fabrication technology. We aim at printing low-cost sensor systems for applications in antiviral drug testing and toxicity testing.
