Abstract

Every year, 140 million diagnostic tests for tuberculosis are performed around the world, with a detection rate around 60% in the best cases. Meanwhile, indoor air quality is becoming a major health concern as volatile pollutants can lead to health problems. The program’s aim is to develop low-cost, sensitive and selective systems based on nanoporous sol-gel sensors, to detect and quantify VOC levels. The systems will be used for two applications: a non-invasive diagnostic breath-test for detection of active pulmonary tuberculosis, and the evaluation of indoor air quality in buildings. 


Objectives

The development of: - Sensitive and selective nanoporous sensors for the detection and quantification of VOC levels based on optical transduction - A compact optical reader allowing a precise quantification of the variations in the sensors optical parameters and its conversion into accurate concentration level. The industrialized production of: - A portable, affordable, and non-invasive breath-test diagnostic kit for tuberculosis - A portable and affordable measuring kit for indoor air quality
