Project »Locochrom«

Low-cost gas chromatography by sensor arrays for rapid food analysis

In the »Locochrom« project, a miniature gas chromatography system was developed and realized. The project aimed at devising a concept, developing components and following on the latest technological developments in the field of semiconductor gas sensor technology. The focus was on sensitive layers and their reaction to VOCs.

Project finance

The »Locochrom« project was funded by the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft.
