Development and application of ion-sensors for multi-analyte detection

Project description

Improved ion sensors for clinical diagnostics and environmental monitoring

An ion-selective electrode is a sensor that converts the activity of a specific ion dissolved in a solution into an electrical potential. Funded by the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions programme, the VITAL-ISE project will investigate new approaches for preparing ion sensors that will alleviate problems associated with chemical measurements in clinical chemistry and environmental monitoring. The new stable, robust sensors will employ new solid-state contact materials incorporated within user-friendly microfluidic devices. They are expected to significantly improve critical care and biomedical diagnostics as well as ensure safe and clean drinking water.
