S3 Nanowire sensors device for the quality control in the food chain and environmental monitoring

S3 is an olfactometric smart tool equipped with gas sensors made with an innovative nanotechnology that allows to have nanometric crystals on miniaturized surfaces. The variation of the characteristics of the sensitive material allows to trace the composition of the analyzed gases. S3 is able to connect to the Internet, allowing to store and manage sensor responses via a Web App and making it an IoT device. Its versatility makes it adaptable to different applications in life science field, from food quality control to environmental monitoring and human health.

Veronica Sberveglieri, Marco Abbatangelo, Estefanía Núñez-Carmona

Veronica Sberveglieri (V.S.) - Has a PhD (PhD) in Sciences, Technologies and Agri-Food Biotechnology.
Since 2016 she is part of the CNR - IBBR, National Research Council, Institute of Biosciences and Bio-resources where she is responsible for a Reggio Emilia headquarters where she has been running her team of young researchers with different nationalities for about 10 years. She currently has over 70 publications in international scientific journals and an h-index of 15, has been invited and hosted at numerous international conferences in two of which has received awards in both New Zealand and the Philippines.
V.S. She has always dealt with new technologies applied to the food field in particular, studies, grows and develops nanowire chemical sensors for food control from the fields to the table.
In October 2016 she also founded a spin-off NANO SENSOR SYSTEMS (NASYS) with which she won numerous awards and who is responsible for creating a strong link between research and industrial applications.

Marco Abbatangelo is a Medical Engineer, graduated at University of Tor Vergata in April 2017 with a thesis on gas sensors for detection of prostate cancer cells treatments. In November 2017, he begins his PhD at the Department of Information Engineering of the University of Brescia, but he actually carries on his research activity in the laboratories of CNR - IBBR, National Research Council, Institute of Biosciences and Bio-resources in Reggio Emilia. He works with smart olfactive tools based on nanowire gas sensors for food quality control and environmental monitoring, especially regarding data analysis. In February 2018, he obtains the qualification to the profession of engineer.

Estefanía Núñez Carmona was born on 7th July 1987 in Spain, earned her a Ph.D in Food Science, Technology and Biotechnology from the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia earned on March 2016 and entitled “Application of Nanowire gas sensor device for the quality control process in the food chain”. Currently is a Ph.D Student at the University of Brescia, Department of Information Engineering. I’m part of the Sensor Lab of the University of Brescia in Italy since 2013 for the development of novel application of sensors devices in Life Science field. Her research interest are: food safety, food microbiology, environmental monitoring and metal oxide nanowires gas sensors. My research focuses in two main lines, the first one consist on the development of innovative organic and green substrates for the development of a new generation of gas sensors.
