What We Do
NanoSpy focuses on developing rapid, low-cost solutions for detection of pathogens in food processing plants. We use cutting-edge nanoengineering methods to inkjet-print electrodes, which are then laser-processed to create a highly conductive, nanostructured surface that is perfect for quantitative detection of ​​​​​​​Salmonella and Listeria in environmental plant samples.

Nanomaterials

 The key to staying on the cutting edge of biosensing technology is to continue research with materials and finding new ways to integrate them into our sensors to establish better sensitivity and specificity while reducing time to detection.

Research

   
We are always investigating the best methods to process our nanomaterials to make the most sensitive and specific sensors possible. This includes researching the materials themselves, methods of laser processing, and the biorecognition agents we use.
    

Handheld platform

   
Currently in development, our handheld potentiostat performs on-site detection of pathogens in complex samples, like tissue, and swab or brine samples. This module is durable, easy to clean, and above all...simple to use with results that are easy to interpret.
    

Microfluidics

   
To maximize the contact between bacteria and our detection surfaces, we use 3D printed microfluidics to focus and guide pathogens to our graphene sensors for quick and sensitive detection.
