Laboratory of sensing techniques

The laboratory of sensor techniques deals with both basic and applied research in the field of analytical chemistry. We focus on diagnostics, food analysis, and environmental safety. We deal with the integration of advanced materials and nanomaterials such as magnetic particles, carbon-based nanomaterials, metal nanoparticles with biological affinity molecules (nucleic acids, antibodies, enzymes, etc.) and artificial receptors (molecularly imprinted polymers) to create electrochemical and optical sensors and biosensors. Our goal is to develop advanced miniaturized, affordable and meaningful analytical devices for saple analysis on site of need.
