Bioelectronic Tongues Dedicated to Wine Analysis. Enhancing the Capabilities Using Nanomaterials

The DOS committee is pleased to announce the participation of Prof. Maria Luz Rodriguez-Mendez from the Universidad de Valladolid, Spain.

Prof. Rodriguez-Mendez will discuss the “Bioelectronic Tongues Dedicated to Wine Analysis. Enhancing the Capabilities Using Nanomaterials“.

In the last years electronic tongues (ET) have been developed and applied to the analysis of a variety of foods . In many cases, it is necessary to develop instruments dedicated to a specific application. This requires the search of sensors dedicated to a particular application, using the appropriate sensing materials and transduction  methods adapted to a specific problem.

Important advances in the field have been carried out by incorporating nanomaterials in the sensing units that enhance the sensitivity thanks to their excellent electrocatalytic properties.  Furthermore, the development of bioelectronic tongues (bio-ETs) combining in the same array unspecific sensors and biosensors, has been an important innovation: bio-ETs provide simultaneously overall information about the sample (as classical ETs do) plus information about specific compounds provided by the biosensors included in the array

Here, the new strategies in bioETs  applied to the analysis of milk and wine will be presented, paying special attention to the new developments based on  nanobiosensors  and the combinations of enzymes with nanomaterials.
