SEA-on-a-CHIP – EU FP7, project number 614168
The SEA-on-a-CHIP project is dedicated to the development of an autonomous miniaturised analytical system for the direct monitoring of harmful low molecular weight molecules in seawater close to or in immediate contact with sensitive aquaculture environments such as fish- and clam farm. The SEA-on-a-CHIP device will be used as an early warning system i.e. operated by the fish farmer as the end user.
The SEA-on-a-CHIP sensor unit consists of three main parts:
CapSenze main activities
In the SEA-on-a-CHIP project, CapSenze main tasks are to coordinate the integration of the developed sensor hardware including e.g. microfluidics, biosensor setup and the communication module. CapSenze is also in charge of the technical development related to sensor housing, battery management system and liquid handling.
The developed prototypes in the project have been successfully disseminated to the European committee in April 2015 (Sagiada, Greece) and in June 2016 (Bergen, Norway). A final demonstration will take place in May 2017 in Olhao, Portugal.
