Photonic system for Adaptable muLtiple-analyte monitoring of fOod-quality

h-ALO aims to develop a bio-chemical photonic sensor as a food screening tool for the early detection of contamination in food, enabling early warning and short-loop corrective actions and guaranteeing cost-effective food safety and food quality monitoring in the farm-to-fork local food chains.

h-ALO combines micro-nanotechnologies for optical sensing based on nanoplasmonics, advanced biorecognition, micro-engineered surfaces and microfluidics for the realization of an ICT monitoring analytical instrumentation that aims at impacting on food-chain security market by outperforming current commercially available portable tools for contamination detection in terms of cost, sensitivity, usability, and time to detection.

At the same time, h-ALO wants to develop a tool that is useful for end-users, thus contributing to the empowerment of new farming approaches and strengthen the competitiveness of local food production and retail chains.
