Product description

The objective of the EnviGuard project is to develop a highly specific and precise (i.e. quantitative and
qualitative) in situ measurement device for currently hard to measure man-made chemical contaminants and
biohazards (toxic microalgae, viruses & bacteria, biotoxins & PCBs) that can be used as an early warning
system in aquaculture and as an environmental monitor to assess the good environmental status of the sea
in compliance with the MSFD. It will be more cost-efficient than current monitoring devices leading to a clear
marketing advantage for the European analytical and research equipment industry. The modular system will
consist of three different sensor modules (microalgae/pathogens/ toxins & chemicals) integrated into a single,
portable device, which saves, displays and sends the collected data real time to a server by means of mobile
data transmission and the internet. EnviGuard will be able to accomplish this also in real-time for a period of
at least one week without maintenance in an offshore, marine surrounding. User of EnviGuard can access
their data online any time they need to. Potential fields of use are marine environment pollution monitoring,
marine research and quality control in seawater aquaculture, a sector in Europe highly occupied by SMEs. The
biosensors developed in the project go far beyond the current state-of-the art in terms of accuracy, reliability
and simplicity in operation by combining innovations in nanotechnology and molecular science leading to the
development cutting edge sensor technology putting European research and highly innovative SMEs in the
forefront of quickly developing markets.
