Design of a novel
biosensor for organic
matter detection in
The project in
collaboration with Palintest Ltd to investigate
and design a new BOD test methodology by
constructing and evaluating a MFC bio-sensor.
Recently, intensive industrial and human
domestic activities have caused ever increasing
pollution of rivers, lakes and water reservoirs.
A rapid estimation of pollution of environmental
objects with organic compounds is a vital
component of ecological control. The methods for
BOD control using bio-sensors are developed for
rapid and efficient analysis. MFC bio-sensor is
an integrated device able to provide
quantitative and semi-quantitative analytical
information with the help of bio-recognition
element coupled with a transducer.
