  6. Nitrate and Phosphate Biosensor for Handheld Monitoring of Water, Soil and Crops

    SBC: Nitrate Elimination Co Inc, The            Topic: 84

    NECi proposes to develop a low cost, handheld device similar in form and function to the glucose meters used by diabetics, but for measurement of the plant nutrients nitrate and phosphate. The inexpensive meter will use disposable sensor strips. Sensing is based on immobilized enzyme films "printed" onto the electrode material of the sensor strips. Recombinant enzymes are the sensing agents: nitra ...
