Lab-on-Chip (LOC) technologies can strongly impact on food, agriculture and environmental monitoring by providing micro-total analysis systems (µTAS) for on-field analysis/detection of environmental threats, bio-warfare agents, toxins and allergens from food, industrial and agriculture products.

For agrifood applications, we optimized:

  • EIS sensors for detection of allergenes, such as gliadin for celiac disease in flour or beer samples [M. S. Chiriacò et al., Talanta 2015, Vol.   142, p.  57-63, issn.  0039-9140, http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.talanta.2015.04.040].
  • EIS sensors for detection of toxins or pathogens (such as L. monocytogenes or S. Aureus) in meat or milk samples [E. Primiceri et al., Analytical Methods 2016, Vol.   8, p.  3055-3060, issn.  1759-9660,http://dx.doi.org/10.1039/c5ay03295d; M. S. Chiriacò et al., Electronics 2018, 7, 347]
