Real-time detection and modeling

Working with a consortium of research entities, CSS helps develop sensors for the Environmental Sample Processor (ESP), an autonomous electromechanical fluidic device capable of collecting, processing, and analyzing water samples to identify algal species, toxins, and toxin concentrations in real-time.  CSS’ focus has been on the design and implementation of the toxin sensors on the ESP, including those for domoic acid, saxitoxin and microcystin detection.
