Clean water and food, free from pathogens, is the need of the hour. By 2025, it is estimated that half of the world’s population will be in water-stressed areas [1]. The Center for Disease Control (CDC) estimates that each year approximately 48 million Americans (1 in 6 Americans) contract a foodborne disease [2,3]. We are developing sensors that enable the instantaneous detection of microbes in water and pathogens in food. e.g., E. coli, Staphylococcus aureus, etc.


  • Enable remote sensing and monitoring

  • Fast detection of microbes (less than 1 second)

  • Self-diagnostic, designed for automatic operation with no  maintenance required
