SCW is a multi-sensor microsystem (MSM) to monitor for the presence of toxic chemicals (TICs), pollutants, hydrocarbons and organics in water.
At the core of SCW there is SENSIPLUS, the Sensichips microsensor platform that can interrogate on-chip and off-chip sensors with its versatile and accurate Electrical Impedance Spectrometer (EIS) and Potentiostat. Analytics performed with EIS allow to exploit RedOx dynamics of catalytic noble metals to aid chemicals discrimination plus measurement of conductivity and permittivity spectra. The on chip Potentiostat is used for a number of different Voltammetric or Amperometric measurements and real time discrimination of pollutants.
By cycling the electrodes with overvoltage, the device prevents or mitigates formation of biofilms. SCW is a comprehensive multiparametric water analysis microsystem.
Thanks to its versatile analytical instruments and availability of on board catalytic Interdigitated Electrodes, SCW is also an excellent experimental microsystem for discriminative measurement techniques.
