Detection of Toxins in Milk

Immuno Biosensor System for Diagnostics

Design Brief

Development of a biosensor platform for the rapid, accurate and automatic detection of contaminates in milk

  • User scenarios: point of collection (i.e. farm), milk processing site or at milk-product manufacturing site
  • Establish initial technical feasibility of the biosensor platform for the detection of a variety of different target species in milk

Project Outcomes

  • Designed, developed disposable microfluidic cartridges with integrated electrochemical biosensors
  • Transfers bench top ELISA competitive assay for Aflatoxin M1 onto microfluidic platform
  • Production of cartridge for small pre-clinical test series (1000 units)
  • MiniChemLAB Microfluidic Workstation Prototype Instrument
  • Demonstrated detection of Aflatoxin M1 in raw milk for Client with high sensitivity, excellent dynamic range (0 to 2000ppt) and time to result < 5 minutes
