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.

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.
