APPLICATION OF NANOWIRE GAS SENSOR DEVICE S3 IN THE LIFE SCIENCE FIELD

The goal of this PhD thesis is the setting up of a new method based on the cooperation of metal oxide Nanowire sensor device (S3), Gas chromatography–mass spectrometry (GC-MS) with solid phase micro extraction (SPME) and classical microbiological-analytical techniques, for the analysis in the life science field. The use of semiconductor metal oxides with nanowire structure have a performance advantage, primarily sensitivity and stability over time as well as reduced production costs. S3 is a fully portable instrument, with a high degree of energy autonomy and with the possibility to realize on-site tests and transmit the data acquired directly by the data processing station (via Wi-Fi or Bluetooth ) user friendly, fast and economic. S3 have been created in the Sensor lab in collaboration with the University of Brescia, CNR –INO and the spin-off Gas Sensor System.
