RAMBO (EDA JIP-CBRN)
Project acronym: RAMBO
Project full title: Rapid Air Particle Monitoring against Biological Threats
Funding: the project is financially supported by EDA JIP-CBRN
Area: Smart Sensors
- detection of B threats
- Development of a sensing scheme for airborne bio-threats dispersed in a water matrix.
- Role of CREO
- Development of SERS method and hardware.
- Sensing solution / Technology
- The sensing scheme consists of two stages: a first stage based on SERS for continuous monitoring of a water flow and threat detection, a second stage based on qPCR for off-line threat identification. Both analytical steps are performed on a unique microfluidic cartridge.
TRL: 3-4. Breadboard tested succesfully with potential interferents and simulants of Bacillus anthracis with sensitivity down to 1000 CFU/ml and response time < 60 min. A microfluidic chip demonstrated, that combines SERS and PCR sensing capabilities.
