Welcome to BIOFOS
Micro-ring resonator-based biophotonic system for food analysis
BIOFOS is a specific-target research program (STREP) co-funded by the European Commission under the 7th Framework Programme.
The aim of BIOFOS is to develop a simple, fast, low-cost, sensitive, portable and reliable, screening tool for in-situ detection of food contaminations. The reusable biosensing system will be based on optical interference and lab-on-a-chip (LoC) technology. By combining the most promising concepts from the photonic, biological, nanochemical and fluidic parts of LoC systems, the BIOFOS system is targeting in the specific and highly sensitive detection of antibiotics, mycotoxins, insecticides and heavy metals in milk, olive oil and nuts.
