Synthesis of a sensing membrane based on chemiluminescence


Work description

Development of a portable prototype combining optical sensing and chemistry membrane for biogenic amines detection in fresh food. The sensing membrane is based on chemiluminescent processes in a solid cellulose buffer which in contact with samples containing biogenic amines causes light emission at specific wavelengths. The detection system collects the light corresponding to the effective concentration of biogenic amines in the sample
