Greensense is a miniaturized system to detect biomarkers in saliva/urine, focused on Drugs of Abuse. The system is built with nanocellulose and printed electronics.
GREENSENSE will develop a wireless, autonomous and sustainable platform to detect biomarkers. The project is focused on Drugs of Abuse (DoA): THC, Morphine, Cocaine, Amphetamin and Secobarbital. The system contains a new biosensor, an NFC-antenna and an electrochrome display. It's controlled by a microchip which interprets signals from multiple sensors and handles wireless communication.
Challenge: In Field- measurments of drug affection, quickly and exactly, from saliva or urine - without access to advanced laboratories or blood sampling.
Solution: An autonomous, miniaturized sensorsystem based on printing technologies and green materials- nanocellulose.
Effect: Possibility to create small, cost effective and environmentally sound smart systems, which could be beneficial for healthcare/caregivers, and within police work.
A focal point for the project is nanocellulose (NC) and NC-derivates: as a substrate for printed electronics, laminate for encapsulation and as a component in the functional inks; bioactive, conducting, dielectric, electrochemical and electrochromic.
GreenSense is financed through an EU-program; PILOTS-05-2017 Research and innovation action.
The Project encompasses the following workpackages:
Medicine and medical technology
Integration, printing, electronics design, sensors
