  1. Lab-on-a-chip sensors for organic pollutants in homes

    SBC: Prometheus SenTech LLC            Topic: 15NCER01

    Exposure to hazardous organic compounds (OCs) in the indoor environment can cause serious health issues. There are no commercially available devices for inexpensive autonomous continuous monitoring of OCs that generates actionable data (identification and quantification of the compound) that can be used for reducing the health risks associated with OC exposure. The proposed sensor technology has ...
