2017 Q3 Update on INISH MINI-BAR

2017 Q3 update: INISH MINI-BAR (H2020) project is continuing on course as planned. Since the last update, significant progress has been made in a number of key design areas such as sensitivity, aesthetics, human factors and electronics. In terms of sensitivity, the electronics have been improved increasing the signal-to-noise ratio significantly and enabling reliable detection of bacteria in beer. Optimising the fluidic parameters/settings also helped improve the accuracy of bacterial detection. The new case design has been modelled; it is smaller and more compact than the previous design and takes into account the needs of the end user.  It will be on display at the MBAA conference (12th – 15th October, Atlanta, GA, USA).  The prototype circuit board mentioned in the last update has now been tested with beer samples and shows promising results.
