Real Time Monitoring System for trace analytes e.g. phosphate in Water
National University of Singapore, Singapore, Singapore
A low cost and highly sensitive sensor for phosphate monitoring (freshwaters). The sensor arranged to increase the low concentrations in water to high concentrations by selectively complexing phosphates diffused from a diffusive layer and employing a binding phase for absorbance detection. The accumulated phosphates are detected by light emitting diodes.
Primary Application Area: Environmental, Water & Waste
Technology Development Status: Prototype
Technology Readiness Level: TRL 3
FIGURES OF MERIT
Value Proposition: We provide a low cost and highly sensitive device which is urgently needed for trace phosphate monitoring in freshwaters where eutrophication or algal blooms is concerned. Current available sensors are only used for wastewater and often cannot be used for natural water applications.
