The Center for Advanced Sensor Technology promotes the development of optical based sensors for biomedical, bioprocess, environmental and homeland defense applications. We are a multidisciplinary group of chemists, molecular biologists, electrical engineers and chemical and biochemical engineers. Our main objective is to create innovative sensor technology that is high throughput and low-cost amenable for transfer to industry counterparts.
