About the Seminar:

Sensors for the potentiometric detection of ions in liquids such as human body fluids or environmental waters are highly sensitive and selective analytical tools that offer a variety of advantages, such as simplicity of measurement, high analysis throughput, rapid detection, continuous on-line monitoring, and low cost of analysis. While such sensors are used in clinical laboratories for billions of measurements every year, applications in biomedical sciences, the food industry, and environmental monitoring have been hindered by sensor fouling and the frequent need for recalibration. This talk will address long-term sensor stability, calibration-free measurements, miniaturization and low-cost design for point-of-care analysis, and—in view of long-term monitoring in the human body and the environment—robust design and resistance to chemical and biological fouling.
