AflaSense: Rapid and Portable Aflatoxin Sensor 

Aflasense is a novel, low-cost and portable tool that enables simple and rapid aflatoxin detection.Its operating principle is based on the measurement of current response as a result of electrochemicalreaction from aflatoxin on highly sensitive graphene-based disposable working electrode, which is fabricated by printing technology.The current is then accurately converted into aflatoxin concentration and output on the built-in LCD display. The disposable graphene electrode offers high efficiency, high detection sensitivity and wide detection range of 0-80 ppb of aflatoxin.

This technology was co-developed by scientists from NECTEC and BIOTEC.  For further information, please contact NECTEC Business Development and Technology Transfer Division.
