BIOSENSORS

COVID

Water Biosense® COVID enables detection and monitoring epidemiology of the viral load of current circulating multivariates of the SARS-CoV-2 virus in wastewater remotely, programmable, on-site and early.

It represents a first level of alert in the presence of the
causative virus. of COVID-19 in real time and in a programmable way
through the safe and reliable monitoring of its levels in water.

Controls and guarantees the quality of treated drinking water before its use or handling

It allows to anticipate corrective measures from the moment of its detection.

It is a valuable tool for public health.

E.COLI

Product of the WaterBiosense® family specialized in the detection Escherichia coli and other coliform bacteria as an indicator of fecal contamination.

Adaptation of the equipment model to the needs of the sample (Standard for clean water, Plus for dirty water, Advance for wastewater)

• Water facilities for human consumption.

• Bathing water and recreational use.

Contributions of water for agricultural processes, agri-food, food, pharmaceutical, industrial.

Wastewater (after human use or from industrial processes)

It ensures the maintenance of the physicochemical and microbiological quality of the water through continuous measurements on the presence of coliforms.

It allows the implementation of new, more sensitive, efficient and faster early detection strategies that allow microbial analysis directly at the sampling point and in real time.

LEGIONELA

Water biosense® Legio represents a first level of alert for the presence of Legionella in real time and in a programmable way.

It allows anticipating corrective measures from the moment of its detection.

Confirms the correct use and effectiveness of disinfection procedures, application of biocides or chlorine.

It ensures the absence of Legionella after having carried out shock treatments, confirming its correct elimination, through periodic sampling.

It makes it possible to ensure the non-presence of bacteria in the supply water of industrial or agri-food processes.

Controls and guarantees the microbiological quality of drinking water when there are accumulation deposits.

What are biosensors?

A biosensor is a device that detects a specific substance in a sample and produces an electrical signal that can be measured. Biosensors can detect a wide variety of substances, including glucose, enzymes, hormones, and antibodies. The electrical signal produced by the biosensor can be measured to determine the concentration of the substance in the sample. Biosensors can detect a wide variety of substances, including glucose, enzymes, hormones, and antibodies. The electrical signal produced by the biosensor can be measured to determine the concentration of the substance in the sample. They have been developed in a variety of forms, including probes, electrodes and voltage cells. Some biosensors can be implanted in the body, while others can be used externally. 

Components of a biosensor:

  • Biological sensorIt can be taken from nature or from synthetic biology.
  • TransducerCouples the elements and translates signals emitted by the sensor.
  • DetectorCan be optical, piezoelectric, thermal, etc.

Types of Biosensors

  • ElectrochemicalsReact with an analyte of interest to produce an electrical signal proportional to the concentration of the analyte.
  • ImmunosensorsImmunoassay: Solid-state biosensor devices based on affinity ligands in which the immunochemical reaction is coupled to a transducer
  • MagneticsMeasure changes in magnetic properties or magnetically induced effects.
  • ThermometricThey measure the change in temperature of the solution containing the analyte caused by these enzymatic reactions.
  • AcousticThey measure the change in the physical properties of an acoustic wave.
  • Opticians: measure the interaction of an optical field with a biosensing sensing element.

Some applications of biosensors

  • Glucose monitoring in blood for the management of diabetes.
  • Enzyme detection to diagnose diseases.
  • Checking hormone levels for the diagnosis and treatment of diseases.
  • Antibody detection to identify and treat infections.
  • Toxin detection to diagnose and treat cases of poisoning.

What do we use biosensors for?

Environmental biosensors offer the ability to detect pesticides, heavy metals and several major water pollutants. At Sensactive Technology, we create early warning systems, which enable relevant decisions to be made in real time. In this way we help industries comply with current legislation and work to protect public health.

Conclusion

At Sesactive Technology we want technology and innovation to go hand in hand to offer solutions of high socio-sanitary and environmental interest, responding to the needs of monitoring the levels of agents that affect or may affect the health of the population.
