Annelise is ready to start the tests. It sure is a small device!
When you want to test the water quality in Mozambique with a DNA-based field device, step one is of course to make sure you have a device. Within this project we will not research or develop a new technology, but we will determine whether available technologies are suitable for this application or whether further development is required.
After weighing up all the advantages and disadvantages of available mobile DNA devices, we decided on the lightest, most portable and simple solution. Now the serious work can begin! We will start by testing the device in the lab of Orvion in The Netherlands. Let’s see what this little device can do!
