The COASTAL (MiCrofluidic sensOrs for rApid detection of marine toxins in SusTainable AquacuLture) Project team will promote the Webinar Advances in detecting marine toxins using sensors which will take place online (via Zoom) at 10 am (Lisbon Time) on December 7th 2022.
This Webinar aims to present an overview of technologies in detecting marine toxins in bivalves and other unexpected vectors and to present a novel approach for the detection of PST (Paralytic Shellfish Toxins) through microfluidic sensors.

- 10h40 | Detecting marine toxins and other targets with biotechnological strategies – Mònica Campàs (IRTA | Spain)
- 11h00 | National monitoring programs of marine toxins for bivalves from Norway and Portugal – John Aasen (NMBU | Norway) & Maria João Botelho (IPMA | Portugal)
- 11h20 | Chemical and biosensors for the detection of paralytic shellfish toxins – Alisa Rudnitskaya (University of Aveiro | Portugal)
- 11h40 | Integrating sensors with microfluidics; challenges and opportunities – Frøydis Sved Skottvoll & Michal Mielnik (SINTEF | Norway)
- 12h00 | General discussion and final remarks
Moderation by M. Teresa S.R. Gomes (University of Aveiro | Portugal)
The webinar is free but registration is required and the deadline is December 5th 2022 (online participation limited to 100 entries).
The COASTAL project seeks to mitigate the negative effects of harmful algal blooms by developing novel miniaturized sensing screening tool for rapid and sensitive detection of PST. The main intended end-users of such tools are bivalve producers and reference labs involved in toxins surveillance.
