A Sustainable, Wireless, Autonomous Nanocellulose-based Quantitative Drug-of-Abuse Biosensing Platform
GREENSENSE project develops a point of care device to perform quantitative screening of drug-of-abuse in saliva and urine. The device aims to be used by medical staff, paramedics, law enforcement officers, anti-doping organizations and also individual consumers.
The device is made of nanocellulose and it integrates high added-value printed electronics with a silicon microchip. It includes and NFC antenna and energy storage systems, a display and five biosensors.
The new biosensing device features various technical advantages and aims to reduce environmental impact.
Large scale production
GREENSENSE will use nanocellulose for the substrate for the printed electronics, in the lamination film for the encapsulation of the final device and as an active component in the formulation of functional inks. Pilot lines and high throughput, high precision and cost-effective sheet-to-sheet screen-printing and ink-jet printing techniques will be used to produce materials and components at large-scale.
The GREENSENSE device will integrate the following features:
The GREENSENSE device has an eco-design as it is mainly made of nanocellulose and printed electronic components that can be easily disassembled for recycling purposes.
