Glucose Monitoring (Cooperation with Prof. Dr. Tobias Werner, Mannheim University of Applied Sciences)

Next to oxygen, the availability of glucose is one of the crucial prerequisites for cellular and tissue growth and metabolism.  There is a need for online or preferably in situ glucose measurements in process development and process monitoring and control in general.

Aim of the project is therefore the continuous and time resolved monitoring of glucose by means of a novel sensor (Prof. Dr. Tobias Werner, see also Institute of Analytical Chemistry at Hochschule Mannheim) Core innovation is the development of a sterilisable sensor for long term contactless glucose monitoring in animal cell cultures.
