2017 Q4 Update on INISH MINI-BAR

2017 Q4 update: INISH MINI-BAR (H2020) project is progressing as planned with significant advances in a number of areas since the last update. There has been substantial work carried out on the overall device design, building on the demo unit which was on display a the MBAA conference (12th – 15th October, Atlanta, GA, USA), along with an animated video which provides potential customers an overview of the INISH MINI-BAR device concept and operation. The various subsystems of the device, including a miniaturised microfluidic pump assembly and core electronic components have been integrated to produce an updated prototype which will be used to validate the operation of each subsystem. The testing of the improved detection electronics is ongoing and continues to show promising results for detection of bacteria in beer, with a number of tests being carried out using trade samples of different beers collected from bars in Dublin.

 

This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 755731.
