Event description

Harnessing insects' powerful sense of smell

Dr Andrew Kralicek, Founder and Chief Technology Officer of Scentian Bio and former Team Leader of the Molecular Sensing Team at Plant & Food Research, has spent the last decade working out how to harness insects’ outstanding sense of smell to revolutionise the world of electronic sensors.

This technological breakthrough led to the development of a proof of principle prototype showing that insect smell receptors can be used for the detection of miniscule amounts of volatile compounds.

Potential commercial applications range from human health, pest and disease detection, food quality and defence technologies.

Attend this free event to learn how Dr Andrew Kralicek and his team combined insect biology with nanotechnology to create a revolution in sensing.
