Description of the project:
Within the BMBF project MOEBIUS a stand-alone micro-opto-electronic system for versatile sensor applications in the fields of biomedicine, process engineering as well as environmental analytics is invented. The highly interdisciplinary project tasks comprise the design and development of an innovative lab-on-a-chip concept based on bio-selectively coated optical Bragg grating sensors together with an optoelectronic interrogation device including an end-user-friendly graphical unit interface.
Benefiting from the combined advantages of microfluidics, integrated optics and spectroscopy, the system simultaneously provides quick and ultra-precise measurements of multiple fluid parameters while only using minimum sample volumina. Manifold application potentials in terms of point-of-care diagnostics in particular promise vast and attractive impacts on current state-of-the-art fluid analysis.
