Online Monitoring: Electrochemiluminescence based Gated Assay

Project description

New analytical tool could help detect trace amounts of contaminated water

Rapid water tests that can be conducted on site could help eliminate the presence of disease-causing bacteria and prevent common illnesses such as diarrhoea and dysentery. Sensitive, portable and affordable analysis tools are crucial for early detection of contaminated water. Such tiny analytical devices should indicate analytes at very low concentrations with high accuracy. Funded by the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions programme, the OMEGA project plans to integrate microfluidics, gated delivery systems, magnetic beads and electrochemiluminescence to develop user-friendly, affordable and robust analytical devices of unprecedented performance.
