Nano-structured electrochemical ozone monitors

Synkera Technologies has received a SBIR Phase I grant from the National Institutes of Health to develop improved ozone sensors capable of making reliable in-field exposure measurements for individuals with asthma and other respiratory diseases. The ultimate goal of the project is the development and validation of a new, personal monitor that will be able to detect low levels of ozone (<12 ppb) in real-time with the required spatial resolution in order to aid research on respiratory diseases, leading to a better understanding of how people are affected by various environmental exposures. The sensors will build upon recent advances in electrochemical sensing technology to create a next generation product that is significantly smaller, faster, more sensitive, stable and lower cost.
