Biosensori Basati su Microrganismi per il Controllo delle Acque e degli Impianti di Trattamento delle Acque

The aim of the project is to develop an autonomously operating analytical platform with an innovative microbial biosensors system targeting the inhibition of nitrification process during wastewater treatment. The analytical platform will consist of the measuring device integrating a microfluidic biological detection component and optical sensors. For the end-users, the platform will serve as an early warning system for a better WWTP operation withtin the EU regulations.
