In the project MOLOKO (Multiplex phOtonic sensor for pLasmonic-based Online detection of contaminants in milK), 12 partners from seven countries worked with the German research organization Fraunhofer to devise an expedited and inexpensive test for identifying quality factors in milk.
In a test lasting around five minutes, a new optoplasmonic sensor analyzed a milk sample for a total of six substances. The sensor demonstrated its use as an early warning system within the supply chain, detecting the substances before the milk was pumped into the tanker.
The sensor is equipped with receptors for specific antibodies that serve as indicators of various quality and safety parameters for milk, allowing dairy farms to carry out…READ MORE
