RP13: Influence of pH and pathogens on aqua-food quality (ESR 13- CFFT)
The conventional methods for aqua-food quality monitoring use sensors with glass-based electrodes. The hazardousas glass fragments may be leftover in the food during testing. To overcome such issues, this project will use metal oxide thick /thin film sensors fabricated and test them for cross-sensitivity. In addition, the project will establish linkage between water quality and the aqua-food quality.
