  10. 10. Application Areas Animal Welfare Food Analysis Microfluidic Component Sensors & cell separation Caartridge housing Sensor cartridge Hand held device Blood sample Toxins detection – e.g., melamine in infant formula Detection of residues, e.g., antibiotics Sample 2 font 20 Water Quality Water quality analysis, heavy metal detection Priority pollutants , e.g., nitroaromatics Environment Nutrients, e.g. nitrates Pesticides, e.g.,Neonicotinoide insecticide detection (Imidacloprid & Clothianidin) Disease Diagnostics: IBR, BvD, PI-3 BRSV, liverfluke Virus, antibody and vaccine simultaneously Nanosensors for On-farm Diagnostics
  11. 11. Requirements for on-Farm Diagnostics Current Lab Approaches On-Farm Sensing Hours to days Rapid Response (< 15 mins) Typical limits of detection 10 nM Accurate results: comparable to laboratory based tests (10 nM) Typically single species measurement Multiple sensors: simultaneous detection of multiple species Lab based assays Portable in the field sensors and instrumentation, Robust &reliable Highly trained personnel Simple, maintenance free €5 for each test Low-cost and disposable <€5 for simultaneous assays
  12. 12. US-Ireland funded R&D Partnership Program Agri-sense : 2013 • Partners: • Dr. Eric Vogel – Georgia Institute of Technology • Dr. Mark Mooney - Queen's University Belfast • Dr Alan O’Riordan - Tyndall National Institute Scope: to develop a novel low-cost and label-free, integrated bimodal electronic biosensor for Bovine Respiratory Disease (BRD) Impact: • Developments of an inexpensive, rapid, and “on- farm" field-deployable platform technology based sensor system for BRD disease detection is proposed.
  13. 13. Liverfluke Flukeless: 2013 • Partners: • Dr. Riona Sayers- Teagasc • Dr. Prof. Grace Mulcahy – University College Dublin • Dr. Andrew Cromie - Irish Cattle Breeding Federation • Dr Alan O’Riordan - Tyndall National Institute • Scope: To develop tools (diagnostics, GIS, immunologicals, genomics) for use by multiple end- users including veterinarians and farmers. Impact: • Provide a blueprint for novel on-farm parasite control methodologies thereby allowing farmers to rapidly intervene and correct parasite- related animal health issues.
