Tailor-made diets with the NUTRISHIELD project

The NUTRISHIELD project aims at creating a personalised health platform for the young including tailor-made diets based on analysis of a wide range of biomarkers related to nutrition and health disorders. This research, performed in collaboration with Radboud University and the San Raffaele Hospital in Milan, Italy, is part of the EU’s FOOD 2030 research […]

QC-XT Laser used for CO/N2O/CO2/H2O detection

A team from the University of Bari in collaboration with Alpes Lasers uses a QC-XT laser combined with a quartz-enhanced photoacoustic spectroscopy setup to measure carbon monoxide (CO), nitrous oxide (N2O), carbon dioxide (CO2), and water vapor (H2O) simultaneously. The device emission wavelengths ranged from 2100 cm-1 to 2250 cm-1 and the achieved minimum detection […]
