Environmental Monitoring

In-Field River Water Quality Control

Fast Monitoring of E.Coli in Field

Design Brief

Design and development of a rapid, cost effective and automatic detection system for E.coli in water, including:

  • Biosensor cartridge
  • Concentrator
  • Instrumentation (including assay reagent management system)

Applications in risk management process for water communities.

Project Outcomes

  • Designed, developed disposable microfluidic cartridges with integrated electrochemical biosensors
  • Bench-top assay (enzymatic depletion assay) transferred to microfluidic cartridge
  • Engineering of the biosensor platform interface with the concentrator
  • System integration of the biosensor platform, concentrator and instrument
  • Established CDP System for Client
