Related Activities

The SYMPHONY project aims to deliver the integration of heterogeneous technologies, encompassing photonics, microfluidics and system integration, in a miniaturised smart system that will perform low cost label free detection of contaminants in milk and prevent infection of dairy products.

Goals: 
The main goal is to produce an automated sampling and analysis system to be used on-line in Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points (HACCP). In particular, milk and dairy products can be contaminated by aflatoxin M1, a carcinogen hazard for human health and an economic loss for the dairy industry.
