The SAMOSS project (Sample In – Answer Out Optochemical Sensing Systems) is part of an initial training network in which optochemical sensor systems are developed that are capable of performing a chain of operations starting from autonomous sample processing to reporting the result. The compounds of interest include for example mycotoxins or antibiotics in foods, drugs in healthcare products and endocrine disruptors such as contraceptive hormones in environmental samples. Within the project Micronit will develop versatile microfluidic cell culturing platforms with optical readout to screen environmental samples.
