Project description

We are developing a miniature optical sensor to measure the antibiotic concentration in blood. In this IOF ConcepTT project, we want to develop prototypes for a proof-of-concept experiment that the sensitivity of our sensor can be improved to therapeutic concentrations of β-lactam antibiotics in intensive care units
