  • Guaranteeing food safety is a must. To achieve it, it is necessary to combine the traditional techniques with novel technologies that will allow simpler, faster and reliable analysis. Microfluidics and Lab-on-a-chip technologies have huge potential to fill this gap. Using them, we will be able to monitor food spoilage at different stages of the food chain (e.g. by measuring microbial activity or metabolites increase). My thesis consists on using the microfluidic technology -developed by Chemical Transducers Group (GTQ) at IMB-CNM- to monitor food spoilage. The thesis is linked with PANBioRA European’s project, which consists on developing a microfluidic chip for biomedical applications.
