Miniaturized disposable lab-on-a-chip sensor for drinking water contaminant detection.

Project Details


The consumption of contaminated water constitutes a major health issue in the developing world. When considering microbiological contamination, the presence of Escherichia Coli can act as a powerful indicator. In the present work, a miniaturized photonic biosensor will be developed for the microbiological screening of drinking water.
