Scientists from the multidisciplinary research group ECsens of the University of Granada (UGR) have developed and tested a new system that enables a large number of chemical analysis techniques to be performed in situ, using a smartphone. This platform, featured in the prestigious Biosensors & Bioelectronics journal, presents results comparable to those of standard laboratories and has been validated in its measurement of various important compounds, such as glucose and pH.
The system, tested on an industrial scale, prevents foul odours and reduces by up to two months the treatment time for the organic matter deriving from the excess sludge, for its subsequent agricultural use
