Cognomics The aim of the Cognomics project is to mimic in vivo neuronal circuits in vitro. The study concerns cognitive processes associated to reflex, pain and learning circuits and is based on the culture of dissociated neuronal cells extracted from rats. Additionally, the existence of a relationship between the results obtained from cultured neuronal circuits with the ones resulting from cognitive studies in humans will be investigated.
Hydrogen peroxide sensor for agriculture and medical applications A new principle for measuring of hydrogen peroxide using the EMOSFET (Electrolyte Metal Semiconductor Field Effect Transistor) has been developed in the Biosensor group.
A hydrogel-based CO2 sensor The aim of this research project is to develop a gastric CO2 sensor for diagnosing gastrointestinal ischemia, which means that the blood circulation of the stomach and intestines are poor resulting in high CO2 levels in the stomach.
Licetas The objective of this project is to develop a system that will be used to analyze the lithium concentration in whole blood samples.
Field ammonia gas sensor on chip ECN has developed an ammonia sensing device for measuring very low frequencies of ammonia in the atmosphere (down to 6 ng/m3). A hydrophobic membrane is used as liquid-gas interface. The sampled gas is examined using conductivity measurement.
