Real-time biomolecular sensing for closed-loop control in healthcare and industry
In healthcare, every patient is different, and the condition of patients changes over time. How can we optimally control the treatment, so that every patient receives the right treatment at every moment?
BIOREACTORS AND FERMENTORS
Bioreactor and fermentation processes vary due to changes in organisms and substrates. How can we control bioreactor and fermentation processes, so that products are always formed with the right quality and optimal yield?
INDUSTRIAL FOOD PROCESSES
In industrial food processing, input streams vary due to agronomic differences. How can food manufacturing processes be controlled to optimally deal with these variations, for achieving cost-efficient production with stable quality of the end product?
THE HELIA PROPOSITION
We develop sensors for continuous biomolecular monitoring. The sensors give a continuous stream of data, for real-time feedback on biomolecular parameters. This enables early warning and closed-loop measurement-and-control in industry and healthcare. To deal effectively with time-dependent biological variations, to guarantee process quality, and reduce failure rates.
